Upfield, Arthur W. (Arthur William), 1890-1964. Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte mystery ; 27.

Summary

It is in a harsh and eerie landscape - the crater formed by the meteor they called "The Stranger" - that another stranger is found… dead. In an area where the presence of every outsider is announced by the bush telegraph, how had this man passed unreported? Who was he? How had he died? No tracks around the crater and no stranger in town. It soon becomes obvious to Bony that both the locals and the Aboriginals are guarding a secret - until the will of the Tribe breaks their silence…
