Two brothers meet in the remote Australian outback when the third brother is found dead, in this stunning new standalone novel fromNew York Times bestseller Jane Harper
Two brothers meet at the remote fence line separating their cattle ranches in the lonely outback. In an isolated belt of Queensland, they are each other's nearest neighbor, their homes four hours' drive apart.
The third brother lies dead at their feet.
Something caused Cam, the middle child who had been in charge of the family homestead, to die alone in the middle of nowhere.
So the eldest brother returns with his younger sibling to the family property and those left behind. But the fragile balance of the ranch is threatened. Amidst the grief, suspicion starts to take hold, and the eldest brother begins to wonder if more than one among them is at risk of crumbling as the weight of isolation bears down on them all.
Dark, suspenseful, and deeply atmospheric,The Lost Man is the highly anticipated next book from the bestselling and award-winning Jane Harper, author ofThe Dry andForce of Nature.
"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."
"The Lost Man isa compulsive, gripping read from start to finish with an atmosphere you can cut with a knife. I was absolutely blown away by it."
"I read it in 24 hours. It'sgripping, atmospheric and ultimately deeply satisfying."
"I don't have words for how much I loved it. Her other two books were amazing, butthis is in a different league. It totally transcends genre, and it should win all the prizes."
"I ask in earnest: How the hell does she do it?The Lost Manis Jane Harper's third consecutive marvel… and, against long odds,her most marvelous yet, pitting brother against brother, man against nature, reader against the clock.What an extraordinary novel: part family drama, part indelible ode to the Outback - a thriller as forceful and atmospheric as a brewing storm. Harper works miracles. We're lucky to witness them."
