TonyfromOz And BONY

These titles and links below are for the posts on Arthur Upfield from TonyfromOz. This is just the Index for all the separate posts in this series.

There are two separate areas of reference.

The first is a series of Posts of my observations from reading through all these Upfield Novels. I took notes as I was reading each of the novels, and I have expanded those notes out into a series covering the many different aspects Upfield detailed, sometimes quite comprehensively in his Bony Series.

The second main heading details the 29 Upfield novels and my personal review of each novel. Some of those reviews are short and some are long, because some of the things in those novels requires further expansion also.

If you click on any of the highlighted titles, you will be taken to the separate post for that title.

I welcome, and will reply to, any and all comments you wish to make, be they here at the Home Page, or at any of these separate posts. I especially welcome comments from others who may have read any of Upfield’s novels in his Bony series because a variety of opinion always adds to the overall picture.

BOOK REVIEWS.

Where possible here, I am just detailing the basics from the novels, and some of the things worthy of mention that do not directly give away major aspects of the plot, the identity of the murderer, or how the investigation was resolved, because that is something left for the reader to find out for themselves, although with some of the novels, the Review is more in depth, necessitating detail of some of the plot lines.

The images of all the book covers I have with the Review of each novel are from the covers of the novels that I have in my personal collection of all 29 of the Bony books. These are not the original covers, but for the paperbacks that I have. Some titles indicate images with the spelling as ‘Boney’, and these were done to correlate with the TV production of the Bony series in the 70’s.

This is the listing for all 29 titles of the Bony novels. As the Review is posted the title will change to a link that takes you to the Review of that novel. Click on the link to be taken to the Review of the novel.
