The Lost Man -- Jane Harper

Staff Pick

Australian novelist Jane Harper’s latest mystery, The Lost Man, introduces new but still relies on the author’s familiar themes of family, hardship, resilience and survival. Set in a desolate part of Queensland, the story revolves around the mysterious death of one of three brothers, whose car, and body, are found miles apart in harsh, desert-like terrain. Harper, a former journalist, is masterful at sowing false leads in her readers’ minds, creating doubts about what sort of deceptions could have led to a man dying of dehydration in an area he knew well, and weaving together strands of evidence as the story evolves. Her greatest gift: You never figure out what happened until the very end.
