Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte arrives in the little town of Mitford, New South Wales, to find that five babies have been abducted and a murder committed. The half-aborigine sleuth calls in Policewoman Alice McGorr to help him, and one of the most important clues they find is a cave drawing depicting an aboriginal legend. Bony, as unorthodox and cunning as ever, reenacts the legend in order to solve the mystery.

Mediocre or Lower Rating
None of these audios are mediocre or of lesser quality. All are at least worthwhile listens.
Title: What title has to do with the story I do not know. Unfortunate because the story is superb, deserving of a more tantalizing title.
Story: An engaging, complex mystery. Alice is a "stitch," a really fun character. Plot kept me guessing until the very end. The indigenous legend is delightful.
Bony in town
Bony demonstrates his tracking ability in a urban environment.
