Book Review: The Dry by Jane Harper

The Dry By Jane Harper

Abstract

Who really killed the Hadler family? Luke Hadler turns a gun on his wife and child, then himself. The farming community of Kiewarra is facing life and death choices daily. If one of their own broke under the strain, well… When Federal Police investigator Aaron Falk returns to Kiewarra for the funerals, he is loath to confront the people who rejected him twenty years earlier. But when his investigative skills are called on, the facts of the Hadler case start to make him doubt this murder-suicide charge. And as Falk probes deeper into the killings, old wounds are reopened. For Falk and his childhood friend Luke shared a secret… A secret Falk thought long-buried… A secret which Luke’s death starts to bring to the surface.

Comments

Fantastic read!  Gripping storyline, well written characters, many our readers could sympathise with, and a beautiful setting.  This was another great read by an Australia author for our group.  Beautifully written, keeping us guessing at each turn.  A superb plot twist at the end that none of us saw coming.  A fantastic debut novel that would make a great holiday read.  We look forward to seeing what’s next from this author. 

Rating – 8/10
