The man lay still in the centre of a dusty grave under a monstrous sky.

Two brothers meet at the stockman's grave, a landmark so old, no one can remember who is buried there. But today, the scant shadow it casts was the last hope for their middle brother, Cameron.

Something had been troubling him. Did Cameron choose to walk to his death? Because if he didn't, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects...

For readers who loved The Dry and Force of Nature, Jane Harper has once again created a powerful story of suspense, set against a dazzling landscape.

"Harper's books succeed in part because she conveys how even now, geography can be fate. Book by book, she's creating her own vivid and complex account of the outback."
New York Times

"Harper surpasses her achievement in The Dry, her multi-award-winning first novel."
Weekend Australian

"I absolutely loved The Lost Man. I devoured it in a day. Her best yet!"
Liane Moriarty

"In The Lost Man, as in Harper's previous two novels, place is paramount, a multifaceted character that's in turns brutal and breathtaking."
Washington Post

"Harper adroitly blends the tension and brisk pace of a thriller with the psychological acuity and stylish prose of literary fiction."
Irish Independent

Jane Harper

Jane Harper was born in Manchester in the UK, and moved to Australia with her family at age eight. She spent six years in Boronia, Victoria, and during that time gained Australian citizenship. Returning to the UK with her family as a teenager, she lived in Hampshire before studying English and History at the University of Kent in Canterbury.

On graduating, she completed a journalism entry qualification and got her first reporting job as a trainee on the Darlington & Stockton Times in County Durham. Jane worked for several years as a senior news journalist for the Hull Daily Mail, before moving back to Australia in 2008. She worked first on the Geelong Advertiser, and in 2011 took up a role with the Herald Sun in Melbourne.

In 2014, Jane submitted a short story which was one of 12 chosen for the Big Issue's annual Fiction Edition. That inspired her to pursue creative writing more seriously, and that year she applied for the Curtis Brown Creative online 12-week novel writing course. She was accepted with a submission for the book that would become The Dry. Jane lives in St Kilda with her husband and daughter.
