Peter Hosking gives a good-natured reading to a down-under police procedural. Hosking's Australian accent helps the listener visualize the story of Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte, who takes only the impossible cases to crack. Half-bushman, half-sophisticate, he gets himself arrested in the small town of Merino so that he can work the case from the inside. The production is technically clean, with varied music introducing and ending the sides. One needs to pay attention because the foreignness of the story is hard to follow. This reviewer still doesn't know what a swagman is. J.P. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
