Read the initial pages of THE LOST MAN by Jane Harper

October 23, 2018

Jane Harper blew us away with her debut novel The Dry, and she did it again with Force of Nature.

Now we have The Lost Man and this is not one to be missed. There are rumours that this is her best yet…

Don’t believe us? Have a read of the prologue and a few pages of the first chapter.


About the book:

The man lay still in the centre of a dusty grave under a monstrous sky.

Two brothers meet at the border of their vast cattle properties under the unrelenting sun of outback Queensland.

They are at the stockman’s grave, a landmark so old, no one can remember who is buried there. But today, the scant shadow it casts was the last chance for their middle brother, Cameron.

The Bright family’s quiet existence is thrown into grief and anguish. Something had been troubling Cameron. Did he lose hope and walk to his death? Because if he didn’t, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects…

For readers who loved The Dry and Force of Nature, Jane Harper has once again created a powerful story of suspense, set against a dazzling landscape.
