INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Two brothers meet in the remote Australian outback when the third brother is found dead, in this stunning new standalone novel from Jane Harper

Brothers Nathan and Bub Bright meet for the first time in months at the remote fence line separating their cattle ranches in the lonely outback.

Their third brother, Cameron, lies dead at their feet.

In an isolated belt of Australia, their homes a three-hour drive apart, the brothers were one another’s nearest neighbors. Cameron was the middle child, the one who ran the family homestead. But something made him head out alone under the unrelenting sun.

Nathan, Bub and Nathan’s son return to Cameron’s ranch and to those left behind by his passing: his wife, his daughters, and his mother, as well as their long-time employee and two recently hired seasonal workers.

While they grieve Cameron’s loss, suspicion starts to take hold, and Nathan is forced to examine secrets the family would rather leave in the past. Because if someone forced Cameron to his death, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects.

A powerful and brutal story of suspense set against a formidable landscape, The Lost Man confirms Jane Harper, author of The Dry and Force of Nature, is one of the best new voices in writing today.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 19, 2018 – Australia's outback, with its brutal climate and equally bruising isolation, looms as large as any character in this stark standalone from bestseller Harper (Force of Nature). For years, the three Bright brothers divorced dad Nathan, the eldest; family man and everybody's favorite, middle child Cameron; and the mentally challenged youngest, Bub have maintained an uneasy equilibrium on adjacent cattle ranches. That flies out the window the week before Christmas when Cameron goes missing; his desiccated corpse is subsequently discovered a few miles from his perfectly operational truck in the shadow of the eerie headstone known as the stockman's grave. Absent any clear indications of foul play, the local authorities undertake a perfunctory investigation, leaving a troubled Nathan to start asking questions that no one wants to answer. In the grim journey that follows, the surviving members of the Bright family must confront some devastating secrets. Harper's sinewy prose and flinty characters compel, but the dreary story line may cause some readers to give up before the jaw-dropping denouement. Author tour.

Customer Reviews

Loved the suspense and the intricate relationships between the characters

Was wholly interested from first chapter. The dynamics between the 3 boys, their father and their family were so dysfunctional yet deeply invested with each other. The death of their brother and the events leading up to it had me on the edge of my seat! I loved the writing style and especially loved the ending the author chose. Definitely a great read!

An Entry into a Whole New World of Unique Lives in the Outback

I loved reading this book on so many levels. It brought me into a real world of land and nature in The Australian Outback with poetry and grit, a world I had never experienced before and never took the time to imagine from the inside. The environment and setting b come a major character in this novel. They shape the lives of those who tie themselves to this hot and dry land to make a home. The book brought me also into the inner world of people’s emotions and thoughts, mostly unspoken to each other but deeply felt and impactful on those closest to them.
The author describes these hard to define emotions and thoughts with visceral and sensuous imagery, rooted in the earth and images of everyday life.
I read The Lost Man in 3 days because of being virtually immersed in the Outback and the people who root themselves for generations or who just pass through.
The author has created a totally immersive experience for the reader of another universe in the Outback - like the feel of red dusty air on your skin at the sight of sunset - and in the inner world of the people chiseled by this climate.
