I am a big fan of Jane Harper’s books and was super excited for this newest release. Her books are my favorite kind of thrillers…slow burners with always a totally surprising ending. They aren’t gory but they are suspenseful and always have amazingly detailed characters and scenes that suck you right in. The way she presented the rural Australian property was just amazing and totally helped set the scene for this family drama thriller.
Over the course of the story, family history and secrets were revealed. I connected with Nathan, the main character and enjoyed slowly taking in the family members that were also a part of this complex mystery. There had been tension in this family that has been simmering under the surface for many years and Cameron’s death brought it all to the surface. I was kept guessing to what exactly happened to Cameron in the extremely dangerous Australian outback until the very end where it all came together in such fulfilling way.
Thank you to NetGalley and Flatiron Books for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
