The Lost Man is a compulsive, gripping read from start to finish with an atmosphere you can cut with a knife. I was absolutely blown away by it.
I loved The Dry. Force of Nature is even better. Brilliantly paced, it wrong-foots the reader like a rocky trail through the bush.
Harper throws out so many teasing possibilities that it's hard to believe this is her first novel. The Dry is a breathless pageturner.
