The Lost Man by Jane Harper – Blog Tour
Updated: Mar 25, 2019
This year’s favorite Mystery and Thriller read, ladies & Gentlemen! I’m not a big crime books reader but when Little Brown approached me to participate in this blog tour, it’s just not possible to say.
I’d like to Thank Little Brown UK for my free advance copy. And for including me in this blog tour.
Two brothers meet at the remote fence line separating their cattle ranches in the lonely outback. In an isolated belt of Western Australia, they are each other’s nearest neighbor, their homes four hours’ drive apart.
The third brother lies dead at their feet.
Something caused Cam, the middle child who had been in charge of the family homestead, to die alone in the middle of nowhere.
So the eldest brother returns with his younger sibling to the family property and those left behind. But the fragile balance of the ranch is threatened. Amidst the grief, suspicion starts to take hold, and the eldest brother begins to wonder if more than one among them is at risk of crumbling as the weight of isolation bears down on them all.
The Lost Man, Jane Harper, Little Brown UK, First release October 23rd 2018, Paperback, ISBN: 9781408708224 , Rating: ★★★★, 362 pages.
Why would you want to read this book? Well… plot-twist, plot-twist, and again plot-twist. Dear god!! I did not see those last 150 pages coming my way. Or maybe I am naive ? I don’t know but i damn enjoyed the hell out of it.
Another amazing thing about this book is the setting. It’s absolutely magnificent; we don’t read a lot about this part of the globe, the remote Australian Outback. Reading about it and getting acquainted with its environment was just like packing my bags, hoping on an airplane and traveling to this destination. I could feel our characters’ life conditions, the struggles, the dust, the heat … etc. It was a whole new experience and Jane Harper nailed it, descriptively, thoroughly and beautifully.
I loved reading the story, the plot was mind-boggling and I just couldn’t put down the book once we hit the 150/200 pages mark; I just wanted to know how it’s going to unravel and damn it was really good.
You must pick this up because it’s is indeed quite the adventure.
