ABOUT THIS BOOK
He had started to remove his clothes as logic had deserted him and his skin was cracked. Whatever had been going through Cameron's mind when he was alive, he didn't look peaceful in death.
Two brothers meet at the remote fence line separating their cattle farms under the relenting sun of the remote outback. In an isolated part of Western Australia, they are each other's nearest neighbour, their homes three hours' drive apart.
They are at the stockman's grave, a landmark so old that no one can remember who is buried there. But today, the scant shadow it casts was the last hope for their middle brother, Cameron, who lies dead at their feet.
Something had been on Cam's mind. Did he choose to walk to his death? Because if he didn't, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects...
Utterly addictive, THE LOST MAN by Jane Harper is unlike any book that I have read before.
When Cameron's body is found at the stockman's grave, his two brothers, Bub and Nathan cannot understand what he was doing out there all alone and without supplies. They all run their own cattle farms in the remote outback where they grew up under the harsh and brutal control of both their abusive father and the landscape itself, so they all grew up understanding the risks of being caught without supplies. Something doesn't add up, and when they find Cameron's car abandoned with everything he would have needed, Nathan is determined to figure it out. But being back at his childhood home isn't exactly comfortable and after what happened ten years ago, Nathan is more used to isolation. Slowly, pieces of the past begin to make more sense to Nathan and this family begin to realise that they didn't really know each other like they thought they did ...
Absolutely compelling from the very first page, the characters and the setting flared to life instantly and I became invested in finding out the truth alongside Nathan, and I really wanted to find out his story too. The author has an exquisite way of rolling out the tension and I felt an uneasiness at so many points during this story and I just wanted to figure out what was going on! The truth was not what I was expecting (I love when that happens!) and yet it made a strange sort of sense.
THE LOST MAN by Jane Harper is a masterful portrayal of solitude, secrecy, and control, and I cannot wait to read more from this amazing author.
