Another Great Mystery from Jane Harper

The first stand alone novel from down under author Jane Harper, The Lost Man is a slow simmering mystery that masterfully creates a sense of place.
In the remote and brutal Australian Outback, three brothers stand to inherit the vast cattle ranch where they were raised. But when the middle son, “golden boy” Cameron, is found dead under bizarre circumstances, everyone becomes a potential suspect. Harper gradually reveals the dark family secrets that may have lead to Cam’s death; abuse, grudges, jealousy, forbidden romance, and more.
The Lost Man is a character driven mystery, as the reader grows to understand what lies beneath the surface of each of the brothers, extended family members, and employees on the cattle station. But the overarching “character” is Australia itself...namely the enormous, harsh landscape of the Outback, where the closest neighbor might live three hours away. The enforced isolation creates a growing sense of dread.
I’m a big fan of Harper’s earlier thriller series, which follow detective Aaron Falk. But I believe The Lost Man is by far her best work yet.
