The Lost Man by Jane Harper

He had started to remove his clothes as logic had deserted him, and his skin was cracked.  Whatever had been going through Cameron’s mind when he was alive, he didn’t look peaceful in death.

Two brothers meet at the remote border of their vast cattle properties under the unrelenting sun of the outback.  In an isolated part of Australia, they are each other’s nearest neighbour, their homes hours apart.

They are at the stockman’s grave, a landmark so old that no one can remember who is buried there.  But today, the scant shadow it casts was the last hope for their middle brother, Cameron.  The Bright family’s quiet existence is thrown into grief and anguish.

Something had been troubling Cameron.  Did he choose to walk to his death?  Because if he didn’t, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects…

Peer & Press Reviews

I read it in 24 hours.  It’s gripping, atmospheric and ultimately deeply satisfying.

Val McDermid

In just a couple of years, Jane Harper has soared into the first rank of contemporary crime writers.  The Lost Man… returns to the parched landscape she used to such powerful effect in her debut, The Dry…  Three generations of women – the dead man’s mother, wife and daughters – struggle to come to terms with terrible events, and the family’s shocking history holds the key to this super murder mystery.

Sunday Times

I don’t have words for how much I loved it.  Her other two books were amazing, but this is in a different league.  It totally transcends genre, and it should win all the prizes.

Marian Keyes
