Jane Harper is one of my favorite authors. After reading The Lost Man I thought it would be my favorite read of the year. This is still a strong possibility. The story takes place in the Australian outback where the rules are different. What we take for granted is a luxury for it’s residents. The Lost Man is not just the story of a man left to die in the sweltering heat of the outback. His death unravels his family at the seams and unleashes secrets long buried. The Lost Man is immersive, chilling (despite the hot setting), and a must read for those who love crime fiction.
