A story of desperation, resolution and small-town prejudice played out against the blistering extremes of life on the land. Amid the worst drought to ravage Australia in a century, a farmer turns his gun on his family and then himself. As questions mount and suspicion casts a long shadow over the parched town, specialist investigator Aaron Falk is forced to confront the community that rejected him 20 years earlier.

Jane Harper, please continue to write books as brilliant as The Dry - hard to stop listening because of the story plot twists and turns. Typical Australian outback background with characters perfectly chosen to fit kept the suspense right to the last pages.
