THE WILL OF THE TRIBE skillfully presents a “locked-door mystery”—a plot device beloved by fans of detective stories. Peter Hosking's narration is the perfect vehicle. Upfield’s Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte mysteries are renowned for their reproduction of the dialogue, lifestyles, and attitudes of 1930s Australians. Inspector Bonaparte is part white, part aborigine—a helpful combination in this case as a dead white man is found in an Outback crater, with no clue as to how he got there and no witnesses. Hosking navigates male and female, white and aboriginal, young and old voices with the ease of a bounding kangaroo. He pulls off these vocal acrobatics with masterful aplomb.
