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 start bleeding into fresh ones. 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
Thank you Little Brown Books for sending myself a copy of this for an honest review
The Dry is Jane Harpers Debut novel.
It was very well plotted with lots of suspense. It was weaved with plenty of twists and turns most of which I did not see coming . I was shocked that I did not figure out who the murderer was my money was on someone else!
I have decided to award this a 4 out of 5 stars although I really enjoyed this book. I have decided to get a bit stricter with my ratings. I will be looking out for future work my this autho
So a very high 4 out of 5 stars
