The Dry is the debut mystery by Jane Harper. Federal Agent Aaron Falk is returning to his hometown for the first time in decades as his best friend has died and he needs to attend the funeral. This is the first time back since twenty years ago when Falk was accused of murder and he used Luke as an alibi. All these years later, someone knows they didn’t tell the truth back then and Luke is no longer around to provide the alibi. Falk works with the local detective to investigate Luke’s death and ends up being drawn into the small town’s dark secrets from the past.

Harper followed that book up with The Lost Man. This book follows two brothers meeting in the Australian outback for a terrible reason: their brother is dead. The two brothers will look into what made their brother Cameron head out alone in the unrelenting sun and just what exactly happened to him out there. This is a powerful and brutal story set in a powerful and brutal landscape, that helps solidify Harper as one of the top suspense writers working today.
