The Lost Man by Jane Harper is a 2019 Flatiron publication.
Jane Harper’s descriptive depictions of the Queensland scenery, places the reader smack dab into its harsh atmosphere, helping to create a dark and moody mystery, crackling with unbearable suspense.
The Stockman grave, a landmark with a storied legend behind it is the scene of the shocking death of Cameron, the middle son of the Bright family. The rumor is that Cameron, who had been behaving strangely, as of late, may have deliberately caused his own death.
Cameron's family, which includes his two brothers, Nathan and Bub, his widow, and their two young daughters, must decide what the future holds for each of them, now that Cameron is gone.
Nathan is grappling with a terrible deed from his past, which resulted in his becoming an outcast in the community, exiling him to a lonely existence, except for the occasional visit from his teenage son, Xander.
Bub is the youngest brother, struggling to find his own niche, and resentful of his brothers, wishing he could break free and live his own life away from the family business.
But, as the story deepens, questions continue to linger regarding Cameron’s death. What had been troubling him lately? Why had he been so on edge? Did he really commit suicide?
As the secrets slowly reveal themselves, a portrait of a family steeped in regrets, longing and misunderstanding, begins to emerge- one that is packed with horrible, stunning, and heartbreaking revelations.
While this is a very deep mystery, it is also a complex family drama so compelling and
Harper outdid herself with this one! Highly recommend!
All the stars!!
