The Dry by Jane Harper
Fellow Bookworms - ya'll were SO right about this book - totally magnificent! 🌾🌾🌾
This book has nothing but amazing reviews and it deserves EVERY SINGLE ONE. A perfect mix of crime, mystery and character drama - set against a unique landscape which becomes as much a part of the story as the people themselves. This is truly un-put-downable.
Aaron Falk is drawn back to a hometown that he ran from decades before - drawn back only by the complex deaths of his childhood best friend, Luke, and Luke's family. Falk finds himself drawn into investigating the deaths at the bequest of Luke's parents, and realizing that the small town full of secrets he was once part of hasn't changed much at all.
Jane Harper is absolute magic at writing complex and multi dimensional characters that allow you to become fully invested in the story. I thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed this and cannot wait to jump into the rest of Jane's work, while I await the next Aaron Falk book. 5 very solid stars.
