"Myra Thomas, an acquitted murderess, appears to have walked off the train somewhere along the four hundred miles of track that cross the treeless Nullarbor Plain in Southern Australia; and Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte, the only policeman capable of coping with such country, is out looking for her.
