    Story
    "Short, well read, and geographically-challenged!"

    First off, as a South Australian, I have to point out that I was mystified by the idea of someone working along on a fence on the border between New South Wales and my home-state, and yet somehow confronting a 'Lake Frome Monster' and being near 'Lake Frome Station'. Um, do you reckon? Google 'Lake Frome South Australia map' and you'll see why this troubles me.

    However, Upfield's novels usually have something of the fantastic about them, and compared to planes that land themselves after the pilot has bailed out or people driven to murder by their thwarted addiction to staring into windmills this geographic anomaly is pretty mild!

    In fact, the plot's relatively straightforward, the solution surprisingly plausible, and the dated 'isms' (sexism, racism) pleasantly constrained.

    So go ahead, but be aware this won't while away the long drive to, say, Broken Hill. This, the unfinished novel, completed from his notes after Upfield's death is, perhaps not surprisingly, brief.

    As usual, Peter Hosking reads beautifully.

    "A Great Upfield Story"

    One of Arthur Upfield's best Books.
    Bony works in disguise on the Dingo fence in Australia
    to track a murderer.
