Product description

Review

Harper's gripping third novel...is her most accomplished yet: a moving story of loneliness, grief and redemption, The Times, Best Crime Fiction Books of 2019

Harper secures her place as queen of outback noir with this haunting family mystery, Sunday Times Crime Club, star pick

Like its precursors, The Dry and Force of Nature, The Lost Man is a gripping mystery that drips with atmosphere (and sweat). This time, though, Harper has added an emotional heft that is deeply moving. It is her best book yet, Evening Standard

Jane Harper writes beautifully and compellingly about the Australian Outback. Superb, Evening Standard

In just a couple of years, Jane Harper has soared into the first rank of contemporary crime writers. The Lost Man... returns to the parched landscape she used to such powerful effect in her debut, The Dry... Three generations of women - the dead man's mother, wife and daughters - struggle to come to terms with terrible events, and the family's shocking history holds the key to this superb murder mystery, Sunday Times

I read Jane Harper's The Lost Man in February, the height of Australia's summer but the depths of the English winter. The image at the heart of the novel, of a man who has perished in the punishing heat of Australia's outback, has stayed with me ever since. Just as good - perhaps even better - than Harper's excellent thrillers The Dry and Force of Nature -- Alison Flood, Observer (Thrillers of the Year 2019)

A riveting, deeply atmospheric read, Mail on Sunday

Another splendid slice of outback noir...Fabulously atmospheric, the book starts slowly and gradually picks up pace towards a jaw-dropping denouement, Guardian, Best Recent Crime and Thrillers

Harper's debut, The Dry, centred on the horrific murder of a family in a hot, remote Australian town. Her follow-up, Force of Nature, moved the setting to the bushland, where a woman goes missing on a corporate retreat. The landscape of The Lost Man is even more hostile, even more alien and beautiful, as Harper deftly manipulates her small but fully realised cast to a conclusion, The Observer

One of the best written and most accessible novels of its kind in years . . . utterly absorbing, Richard Madeley --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
