My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Jane Harper has become one of my favorite authors for the sheer brilliance in her writing. The atmospheric feel she brings into her stories is beyond words. The Lost Man is not a pulse pounding thriller but a slow character driven one. And of course the reading makes you drenched in sweat and feel parched and thirsty, the hot and relentless sun and the outbacks with not a soul in sight, it is like you are the one facing all these elements. I loved this family drama showing the hidden depths of a person and the denial of never acknowledging the truth of what is on your face, the qualities that can redeem a person from a past mistake,each and every part of the story of 3 brothers was expressive and eloquent.

Because if he didn’t, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects…
Dark, suspenseful, and deeply atmospheric, The Lost Man is the highly anticipated next book from the bestselling and award-winning Jane Harper, author of The Dry and Force of Nature.
