Today I'm excited to take part in my first blog tour! I'm going to be talking about a debut novel by Jane Harper called The Dry. I'm currently mid way through reading it and it is a well written crime mystery full of twists and with plenty of suspense that will be perfect for you if you love intriguing thrillers. So here's what it's about...
"Luke Hadler turns a gun on his wife and child, then himself. The farming community of Kiewarra is facing life and death choices daily. If one of their own broke under the strain, well...
When Federal Police investigator Aaron Falk returns to Kiewarra for the funerals, he is loath to confront the people who rejected him twenty years earlier. But when his investigative skills are called on, the facts of the Hadler case start to make him doubt this murder-suicide charge.
And as Falk probes deeper into the killings, old wounds start bleeding into fresh ones. For Falk and his childhood friend Luke shared a secret... A secret Falk thought long-buried... A secret which Luke's death starts to bring to the surface... "
The book is set in Australia during a long drought in a small town and you really get that sense of tension building in a small community.
The film rights to The Dry have already been sold so now is the time to read it. The Dry is out in hardback on the 12th January and you can get a copy here.
