The Sands of Windee (Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte Mystery Series #2)
What was the feud that led to murder after nineteen long years had passed? And who was the woman who saw the murder and kept silent? Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte is a half-aborigine detective, who is taken to a sheep station in the Darling River bush country where he encounters those problems he understands so well.
The police never notice the small detail in the background of a police photograph of an abandoned car. A detail that tells Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte plainly that the mysterious disappearance of Luke Marks near Windee Station is anything but accidental. Why had Luke Marks driven specially out to Windee? Had he been murdered or had he, as the local police believed, wandered away from his car and been overwhelmed in a dust-storm? Bony feels the answers lie somewhere in the sands of Windee.

The plotting is also strong and keeps you interested in the developing story. Through it all, you have that sense of a different time and place, a different pace of living, but familiar emotions and motivations.
I think this is much better than a "typical" mystery and a very notable book. It was delightful to read, and, now I am working my way through other books in the series also delightful as I am able to find them.
