    At night, when the sky felt even bigger, he could almost imagine it was a million years ago and he was walking on the bottom of the sea. A million years ago when a million natural events still needed to occur, one after the other, to form this land as it lay in front of him now. A pla...

    "He used to say the ones who wandered off called the loudest. For the rest of their lives, their mums would hear them crying out in the wind. Do you think that's true? That this place has ghosts? That the mothers would hear their lost children in the wind." Guys, I'm blown away. I'v...

    One of my favorite things about reading is when you pick up a book completely on a whim, unencumbered by expectations, having barely skimmed the synopsis, and it?s the thrill of leaping without being able to see the ground below you, right before you realize that?s called falling. ...

    ***NOW AVAILABLE*** I had read Ms. Harper?s previous two books and loved them. They were mysteries, and part of the Aaron Falk series. This is a stand alone novel and quite different. What I loved about this book was Ms. Harper?s descriptive writing. Here is a sampling of ...

    Slow, but worthwhile! The Lost Man is a character study about the Bright brothers: Nathan, Cameron, and Bub who live in the Australian outback. When Cameron, whom the family considered to be ?the golden child,? is found dead by the legendary stockman?s grave, everyone?s at a...

    4.5 Stars* (rounded up) A Character Driven Novel to be Cherished! Extremely Thought-Provoking. Living is hard in Queensland. The dry, the heat, the financial hardship and the inability to make a living. Families attempt to live off the land, raising cattle, red dust swirling all...

    ****CRACK**** That is the sound of Jane Harper hitting it out of the ball park yet again!! I swear she keeps getting better and better! This is my favorite of her books to date. The outback in Queensland. The sun is hot and unrelenting. It's a harsh climate which makes it hard to...

    Jane Harper shifts direction with her third novel, less crime novel, more a character driven mystery and family drama. What has not changed is her ability to write an utterly gripping story set in the intensely searing heat of the Australian outback, and the depiction of small town lif...

    "He couldn't simply leave, for a lot of reasons. Financial. Practical. And not least because sometimes, quite a lot of the time, he felt connected to the outback in a way that he loved. There was something about the brutal heat, when the sun was high in the sky and he was watching the ...

    The Lost Man is a stand alone mystery from Jane Harper. It?s a slow burn of a book. A man is found dead of dehydration out in the middle of his Australian cattle station. There?s no rhyme or reason for him to have been there, kilometers away from his well provisioned, working car...

    Jane Harper is an author with real talent and a genuine knowledge of Australia and its landscape. In this, her third book, she takes us into outback Queensland with its unimaginably huge cattle stations and its devastating dryness and heat. One major aspect of living in such a place...

    Once upon a time there were 3 brothers. They all lived on the expansive outback of Australia. Now two of the brothers find themselves standing over the body of the third, wondering? what happened? Nathan - the oldest, struggling after being shunned by his community. Divorced, in...

    Another marvellous tale from Jane Harper. In this one we find ourselves at the lonely grave of a fallen stockman in the middle of outback Queensland, where another, much more recent, body is lying on the grave. The body turns out to be Cam Bright, a local landowner, but what was he doi...

    Having thoroughly enjoyed Jane Harper?s first two novels, I was eager to try this, a standalone, to see how connected I felt. While the story was definitely different, it grew on me and helped cement the sentiment that Harper is one of those authors sure to be recommended by those wh...

    Desolate, dangerous, remote and vast; the Australian outback is a place I?d bet I will never see. Those who make it their home live a hard life coping with the savage heat of a vicious and unforgiving climate. One mistake means death and preparation is essential. The inhabitants know...

    4.5 stars rounded up. I've read all three of Jane Harper's now. In addition to her exceptional storytelling ability, she is tremendously effective with the imagery she evokes. Reading The Lost Man , as well as The Dry and Force of Nature , I could feel the unrelenting heat of th...

    I really enjoyed Harper?s novel The Dry, and this one was a little slower paced for me. The premise is that one brother?s body is found inexplicably dead on an old grave far from his car. Two brothers come together to help one police officer?who covers a vast area?to help solve...

    2.5 stars rounded up I am in the minority on this one. I think I am the only one that gave this 3 stars. I loved The Dry. That one was my favorite and I even loved the second book. This one was just so slow and boring. I wish I could of loved this one like everyone else. I loved the...

    When Bub and Nathan came together at the edge of their two properties where the stockman?s grave was located, they were both shocked to see the body of their brother Cameron lying in the shadow of the tombstone. But why was he there? He knew the countryside like the back of his hand....

    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review. A remote cattle station in Queensland, worked by three brothers. Theland is sere, and the heat is relentless, dangerous. The wind is full of red dust and grit that lodges into everything. The story begins with the disco...

    ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. Jane Harper is a gifted writer. She has the ability to evoke that dusty, dry, Australian countryside and use its atmosphere to build tension underneath an intriguing murder mystery that keeps you glued to the story from page one. This book I found to be par...

    4.5 Fantastic new book by Jane Harper set in the vastness of the Australian Outback, so atmospheric... showing the dangers and loneliness that come with a life lived there. This story is about three brothers who together own quite a spread of land, and one brother is found dead near...

    Jane Harper has delivered a stunner of a third novel! A slow burn of a family mystery, rather than a thriller like her previous novels, but nevertheless full of tension and unspoken threat as a family struggles to understand the death of it's favourite son and brother. When Cameron...

    4.5 stars, rounded up Cameron, one of the Bright brothers, is found dead in a remote area of the desert by Stockman?s Grave, a place of urban legends. Dying of dehydration in the unrelenting desert heat is a dreadful death. Dying in this way with his car, stocked with water and o...
