Bony is the sort of detective who enjoys nothing better
on a holiday than a little formal investigation. When he agrees to help a colleague in the matter of
the disappearance of george Loftus, a farmer whose car
was found abandoned near the world's longest fence,
in the wheat country of western Australia, he cannot
immediately find evidence of the murder he suspects.
