My rating: 5 of 5 stars


After hearing an interview with Jane Harper where she talked about a publishing bidding war over the acquisition of her debut novel, The Dry, I put the book firmly on my tbr stack. Then lo and behold, relatives visiting from the UK raved about it and The Dry jumped up a notch or two.
