I read this book early this year (loan from my boyfriend) and now I bought another copy for the Australian bookbox.
I liked the character of "Bony" and his remarks a lot and I was nearly suffering with him when he got sick (you'll see why he got sick and how the "case" is solved...)

From the back cover:

In one of his toughest cases, Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte must find a missing man that nobody wants found and solve a mystery that nobody wants solved.
Jeffrey Anderson was a big man with a foul temper - a sadist and an ugly drunk. No one cared that no trace of him could be found when his horse, an animal as mean as its owner, came home riderless. No one except Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte, who is determined to solve the mystery when he is called into the case five months later. With his usual tenacity, he takes up the cold trail. What happened to Anderson, to his hat, to his stockwhip, to his horse's neck-rope? Bony must rely on his eyes and his wits to help him find the answers, for the local inhabitants are keeping their own secrets.

"Arthur Upfield has an extraordinary gift. ... He has created a charactger, the half-caste Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte, who steps alive off the page." (The Times Literary Supplement - London)
