The Dry

The Dry - Jane Harper Terrific suspenseful novel and a real page turner

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

I have read a few very good Australian novels over the years and [b:The Dry|27824826|The Dry (Aaron Falk, #1)|Jane Harper|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1456113132s/27824826.jpg|47804789] by Jane harper is certainly up there with the best of them.
Characters were realistic, plot well thought out and lots of twists of turns to keep the reader interested. I really was surprised that this was a debut novel as it just so tightly woven and well written and quite a surprise.

Another great summer thriller for readers who enjoy this genre.
