"Two men have been savagely beaten to death in the drought-stricken outback of New South Wales. Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte takes up investigation of the double murder at Lake Jane, the desolate sheep station in the vast, sun-baked country. While clues are scarce, Bony is drawn into the bush, and his insight into its inhabitants leads him to unravel this deceptively simple crime. The solution to this double-murder mystery proves both strange and tragic, and even the brilliant Australian half-caste detective is horrified at the unusual and inspired conclusion.
