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. He knew never to leave his vehicle, or to be without water – but there was no evidence of either. When the lone policeman plus the medical officer arrived, the verdict of dehydration was swift.

As Cameron’s wife and two daughters tried to come to terms with his death, the rest of the family was stricken with grief. The lead up to Christmas was on them; Cameron’s funeral would have to be held soon; but Nathan struggled to work out why Cameron had died. Quietly working things through in his mind, he knew he should let it go. But he couldn’t…

Wow! That was brilliant! A breathtaking, slow burning thriller that captivated me until the very last page. The burning sun, the red dust, the vast and lonely landscape – a desolate countryside; but perfect for The Lost Man by Aussie author Jane Harper. I would venture to say this one is even better than her first two, and I loved them! The Lost Man is a standalone novel – a powerful read which I highly recommend.

With thanks to Pan Macmillan AU for my ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.
