From the Publisher:
A string of bizarre murders shares common elements: all the victims are elderly bachelors and there is always a woman nearby at the time of the deaths. When the witnesses' descriptions of the woman vary widely, half-Aborigine detective Napoleon Bonaparte ("Bony") finds himself calling on a professional burglar and an amateur sketch artist for help.
