|The Dry by Jane Harper
I enjoy a good thriller but don’t read them very often. This is a fantastic thriller by a debut Australian author. Famous thriller authors highly recommend it. I really liked it.
Federal police investigator Aaron Falk returns to his hometown twenty years after he left in a hurry. He’s come to attend the funeral of his childhood friend Luke who it is believed killed his wife and child before himself.
It’s hot, there has been a drought for two years. Farmers are suffering, everyone is on a short fuse.
Just before Aaron left 20 years ago a friend was found drowned, the circumstances have never been resolved. Some people suspect Aaron had a hand in her death, especially her Uncle and cousin.
Luke’s parents and the local cop are looking for answers. They ask Aaron for help in investigating Luke’s family’s deaths.
Twists and turn all the way through. Great edge of your seat ending.
