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...

Despite the fact that I live in Sweden and I read this book during the coldest time of the year, I felt the heat, the dryness and the grittiness of the sand described in The Lost Man. Add to that the surprising sting in the tail of the story and the book goes down as a fabulously good read.

Jane Harper's gripping third novel - after The Dry and Force of Nature - is her most accomplished yet: a moving story of loneliness, grief and redemption * The Times * So satisfying. You're in the parched Australian outback from the first paragraph to the last -- Fi Glover * Waitrose Weekend * In its portrayal of heat and harshness, power and its abuse, you'll find a satisfying, page-turning account of wheat and tares growing up together * Church Times * The atmosphere is so thick you can taste the red-clay dust, and the folklore surrounding the mysterious stockman adds an additional edge to an already dark and intense narrative. The truth is revealed in a surprising ending that reveals how far someone will go to preserve a life worth living in a place at once loathed and loved * Booklist * Jane Harper is at the top of the crime writing genre along with Attica Locke, Megan Abbott, and Tana French...[The Lost Man] slowly builds into one hell of a mystery! I will drop whatever I am doing to read a Jane Harper crime novel * BookRiot * Harper's sinewy prose and flinty characters compel . . . Jaw-dropping denouement * Publishers Weekly * Harper's masterful narrative places readers right in the middle of a desolate landscape that's almost as alien as the moon's surface, where the effects of long-term isolation are always a concern. The mystery of Cam's death is at the dark heart of an unfolding family drama that will leave readers reeling, and the final reveal is a heartbreaker. A twisty slow burner by an author at the top of her game * Kirkus starred review * The pace is frenetic, the landscape epic and the red herrings so cleverly placed that your prime suspect changes by the chapter * Nottingham Post * Jane Harper has gone from excellent debut to consistent brilliant * Weekend Sport * The fantastic Jane Harper's third novel marks a highly anticipated return to the intense setting of the Australian outback * Watford Observer * In seemingly no time Jane Harper has gone from excellent debut to consistent brilliance * Weekend Sport * Against an unforgiving landscape, Harper's story has the qualities of an epic, its plot specific, its themes universal * Belfast Telegraph * A good crime writer creates a great sense of place and bestselling author Jane Harper is no exception. In her atmospheric third novel, the Australian outback is more than just a backdrop to the story, indeed it is the murder weapon itself * Hampshire Living * The fantastic Jane Harper's third novel marks a highly anticipated return to the intense setting of the Australian outback * St Albans Review * Harper's The Lost Man is storytelling at its finest * Daily Mail USA * The Lost Man, like The Dry, is a study in isolation and its psychological and physical effects * New York Times * "f you liked The Dry, you'll love it. The Lost Man is an even better book, gripping right to the end. This terrific piece of outback noir opens with the discovery of a body...Harper...paints the menacing landscape brilliantly. The book's title could easily relate to several of the male characters. This engrossing novel will have you thinking long after you've turned the last page * Herald Sun (Aus) * Jane Harper's third novel seals her spot as one of the best...Like the country it describes, this is a "big" book, and one likely to cement Harper's place as one of the most interesting Australian crime writers to emerge in the past decade. Her sense of place is acute, but it is her attention to the relationships that are shaped by this unforgiving, magnificent landscape that will linger long after the mystery of stockman's grave is finally revealed * Sydney Morning Herald * A stunning read and Harper's best yet * Daily Express * Nothing about this novel is predictable. The characters are compelling, the plot is thrilling and the ending is so very satisfying. There's something special about getting to the end of a book and figuring out the mystery. You'll be left feeling conten
