The Lost Man by Jane Harper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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 fence line separating their cattle farms under the relenting sun of the remote outback. In an isolated part of Western Australia, they are each other's nearest neighbour, their homes three hours' drive 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, who lies dead at their feet.

Something had been on Cam's mind. Did he choose to walk to his death? Because if he didn't, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects...

The Lost Man is the highly anticipated new book from the bestselling and award-winning Jane Harper, author of The Dryand Force of Nature.


The Lost Man is so far my favorite book by Jane Harper. It was interesting to read a stand-alone book and not a new book in the Aaron Falk series. However, right from the very start when Cameron is found by his brothers Nathan and Bub did I feel that this book will be good.

The wonderful setting, one could really feel the Australian heat while reading the book. Not to mention the vastness everything takes hours to reach. Then, then there is the death of Cameron. Was it really a suicide? Has the legend of the Stockman's something to do with the death? The more one reads the more one realize that not everything is as it seems. There are secrets, deep dark secrets...

I will end this review now. This will be a short review since I think that this book should be experienced and I don't want to reveal too much of what is going on. I will just say this, it's beautifully written and I would love to see this book made into a movie or miniseries!

I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review!
