Lost, Cold, Desperate ... Danger Runs Deep

What has happened to Alice Russell?

Five women reluctantly pick up their backpacks and start walking along the muddy track. Only four come out the other side.

The hike through the rugged Giralang Ranges is meant to take the office colleagues out of their air-conditioned comfort zone and teach resilience and team building. At least that is what the corporate retreat website advertises.

Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk has a particularly keen interest in the whereabouts of the missing bushwalker. Alice Russell is the whistleblower in his latest case. She knows all the secrets: about the company she works for and the people she works with.

Far from the hike encouraging teamwork, the women tell Falk a tale of violence and disintegrating trust. And as he delves into the disappearance, it seems some dangers run far deeper than anyone knew.

Only for four to come back. What happened? Jane's storytelling dripfeeds you small details that at first glance doesn't mean much, but soon come into the bigger picture, making you rethink your whole perspective on the mystery. - Andrew (QBD)

I loved it! Another spellbinding thriller full of suspense from Jane Harper, just like her debut novel The Dry. Alice Russell goes missing during a team building exercise in ruggered bushland, with Aaron Falk called into help solve the mystery once again. A page turner from the beginning, it kept pace but was a bit anti-climatic at the end. I'm patiently awaiting her next novel! - Roxanne (QBD)

Harper is a master of the thriller and has delivered another winner. Interwoven twists and turns with an underlying sub-plot reminiscent of the Belanglo State Forest which gave me shivers. Harpers ability to create gripping characters and settings has you on the edge of your seat. Being a big crime thriller fan, i was certainly not disappointed. A must read, don't miss this one! - Sheridan (QBD)

An book to do 'The Dry' proud. This novel is addictive, and full of edge-of-your-seat suspense. This is the second in the series, but enjoyable as a stand alone also. Her character development is amazing, and no gore; just a fantastically built mystery worthy of any book-lovers shelf. - Coreena (QBD)

Jane Harper is BACK BABY!!!
Following her award winning bestseller 'The Dry,' she returns with another thrilling novel exploring human corruptability and mistrust against a bureaucracy posing as a benevolent entity. The plot is driven by the cooperation between Police Agent Falk and whistle blower Alice Russell, after a team building retreat turns fatal for one participant, and is shrouded in mystery and betrayal. An engaging read, 'Force of Nature' begs the question "What is the real threat?" Is it the jungle itself, the hikers themselves or those that sent them there? All with seemingly harmless intentions, the reader is taken on an intellectual adventure without ever leaving the comfort of their favourite reading niche with a hot tea in hand (or possibly even an overfilled glass of wine and a generous portion of your favourite chocolate). After all reading is a lifestyle, albeit a safer one than hiking through a perilous jungle ghosted by an unknown threat. This is an original composition by Owen Doyle, of QBD The Bookshop at Kotara

I loved 'The Dry' so I was really looking forward to the follow up. And I did enjoy this book ... eventually. However, I feel that starting the story with the investigation and then jumping between time periods before really establishing the characters made it hard to get invested in it. Overall (regrettably) it was a bit of a let down for me. - Steven (QBD)

Harper lives up to the hype in her highly anticipated sequel, Force of Nature. The characters, plot, and realistic setting are as superb and well-crafted as they were in her award-winning debut The Dry.

If The Dry blew you away, then Force of Nature will be another gale to be reckoned with. It's as atmospheric and complex as its predecessor, and Harper is talented at drawing interesting motives and actions from her characters. It has enough references to The Dry to let us know what those characters are up to, but Force of Nature is more than capable of standing on its own. I loved it! - Madeleine (QBD)
