Although I've enjoyed all of the "Bony" mysteries, this one left me unimpressed. While Upfield's detective, the indomitable Napoleon Bonaparte, was as charming as ever, the plot drifted away with the tide once he headed out to sea.

In this book, Bony takes a "busman's holiday" while he engages in a bit of deep-sea fishing in Bermagui, Australia. The story begins with the disappearance of the "Do-Me" a sport fishing vessel which has unnaccountably vanished with the entire crew. When fishermen later discover a head with a bullet hole in it, Bony is called in to investigate. At that point Upfield completely drops the plot in order to go fishing. He gets back to the story after Bony catches a couple of swordfish (roughly another 100 pages), but by then, unless you are a deep-sea fishing enthusiast, you will have put the book down.

I wouldn't have minded Upfield's excursions into fishing if he had paid more attention to his plot and to his characters, but both suffered enormously in this story. So did the general atmosphere. I missed the Australian outback-- its vegetation, its vast spaces, the uniqueness of the aboriginal perspective.

If you are eager to begin the Bony series, I would suggest you start with any of Upfield's other novels (with the exception of The Monster of Lake Frome, which was not written by Upfield). Death of a Lake, Bushranger of the Skies, and Man of Two Tribes are all excellent starting points and much more representative of the series as a whole.

I've been reading Arthur Upfield's "Bony" mysteries for several years now, hunting them down as I can, as they were written in the late 40's and 50's. ...the books are absolutely awesome in their sense of the place that is Australia, the character delineations and the incredible world of "the tracker," someone who can read "the story of the bush" to tell what happened. In all of these mysteries, I've never figured it out before Bony did. The pace of the stories is slow, even languid, but the books are very well written, and full of information about a place most of us will never visit, and its culture. Sometimes Bony goes undercover, as he does here, and these are my favorites. "Bony" is Napolean Bonaparte, the detective: a half aborigine, half white man. He's smarter than anybody, and while he sounds like a pain in the neck, in the book his manners are smooth and charming. There is nothing vulgar (except drunkenness) in any of these books. I find them fascinating, and enthralling. Mystery at Swordfish Reef is one of my favorites.

I enjoy reading this series.Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte ("Bony") leaves the bush to investigate a murder that occurred several months before at sea. Deprived of his usual bushmaster skills he must rely on others to read the sign of the sea. A solid mystery. You experience big game fishing with him as he solves the crime.
