The Lost Man

Three brothers, one death, no answers

Two brothers meet at the border of their vast cattle properties under the unrelenting sun of outback Queensland.

They are at the stockman’s grave, a landmark so old, no one can remember who is buried there. But today, the scant shadow it casts was the last hope for their middle brother, Cameron.

The Bright family’s quiet existence is thrown into grief and anguish.

Something had been troubling Cameron. Did he lose hope and walk to his death? Because if he didn’t, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects…


The Lost Man is on sale in Australia and New Zealand (Pan Macmillan), the United States (Flatiron Books) and the United Kingdom (Little, Brown).
