    The novel ?The Lost Man? by Jane Harper is being marketed as ?Fiction?, subcategory, ?Suspense?, according to the book. Ms. Haroer?s first two books were categorized as ?Mystery/Thriller?, this should indicate a change of genre for the author. I could find little susp...

    The Lost Man starts with a simmer and then gradually ignites and becomes unputdownable. The premise has instant promise: the middle of a trio of brothers, Cameron Bright, has died under an unforgiving Aussie desert sun, not far from a functioning car stacked with supplies. His two ...

    When Bub and Nathan came together at the edge of their two properties where the stockman?s grave was located, they were both shocked to see the body of their brother Cameron lying in the shadow of the tombstone. But why was he there? He knew the countryside like the back of his hand....

    I really enjoyed Harper?s novel The Dry, and this one was a little slower paced for me. The premise is that one brother?s body is found inexplicably dead on an old grave far from his car. Two brothers come together to help one police officer?who covers a vast areas?to help solv...

    "He couldn't simply leave, for a lot of reasons. Financial. Practical. And not least because sometimes, quite a lot of the time, he felt connected to the outback in a way that he loved. There was something about the brutal heat, when the sun was high in the sky and he was watching the ...

    This book. I was feeling annoyed with it about a third of the way through, it was doing all the things that I hadn't liked about THE DRY (Harper's first novel) and none of the things I liked about FORCE OF NATURE (her second). I didn't like the characters, the plot didn't seem to be go...

    Wow! Dare I say this is her best yet? As in The Dry, Jane Harper is so good at conveying that stifling, oppressive feel of the Australian outback. The mystery kept me guessing throughout the novel, I was so sure I knew what happened, only to change my mind again and again. I couldn't p...

    At night, when the sky felt even bigger, he could almost imagine it was a million years ago and he was walking on the bottom of the sea. A million years ago when a million natural events still needed to occur, one after the other, to form this land as it lay in front of him now. A pla...

    Jane Harper?s books are enormously popular, but after a similar experience with The Dry, I think I must conclude that they are just not for me. The Lost Man fell a bit flat despite an intriguing premise and a phenomenal setting that is close to my heart: the red dust, sand hills and ...

    They say third book's a charm (do they? I just made that up), and Jane Harper does not disappoint. To say she's done it again is an understatement. The Lost Man is every bit the page turner you expect and more. The way Jane captures the landscape of the outback is like a character i...

    Jane Harper is an author with real talent and a genuine knowledge of Australia and its landscape. In this, her third book, she takes us into outback Queensland with its unimaginably huge cattle stations and its devastating dryness and heat. One major aspect of living in such a place...

    Oh laaawd please don?t hate me for this. I love Jane Harper. I think she?s a brilliant author. I think she writes amazing novels and has great twists. But this one just didn?t do it for me like the other two did. I found it hard to get into, and while I think her description...

    There?s something about Jane Harper?s books that always leave me feeling suffocated. The Dry - the hot, arid heat, and dustbowl of rural outback Australia Force of Nature - the close trees and forestation of bushland and now, The Lost Man - that unmistakable yet undetachable ...

    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review. A remote cattle station in Queensland, worked by three brothers. Theland is sere, and the heat is relentless, dangerous. The wind is full of red dust and grit that lodges into everything. The story begins with the disco...

    I had read Ms. Harper?s previous two books and loved them. They were mysteries, and part of the Aaron Falk series. This is a stand alone novel and quite different. What I loved about this book was Ms. Harper?s descriptive writing. Here is a sampling of her exquisite descriptions...

    ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. Jane Harper is a gifted writer. She has the ability to evoke that dusty, dry, Australian countryside and use its atmosphere to build tension underneath an intriguing murder mystery that keeps you glued to the story from page one. This book I found to be par...

    4.5 stars With The Lost Man, Jane Harper returns to the blinding form of The Dry, creating a tense and powerfully atmospheric read that spirals ever inwards, a path that narrows with every revelation until there is only one possible perfectly formed conclusion. It starts with a ...
