One of his good ones.

Narration: Wonderfully narrated. Australian accent is delightful.

Story: One of his good stories but not one of his best.

I enjoy listening to these

The performance by Peter Hoskins is excellent and the stories are interesting with some humor. The author includes a good bit of background material that makes them even more interesting to me. Best mysteries? No. A good, light book to listen to, yes. Very much so.

The publishers make the point that the attitudes toward women and aboriginals were typical of the period - those attitudes can be annoying. It doesn’t spoil the books and Upfield shows a degree of admiration for Aboriginals and includes strong women in many of his casts.
