You must read this well written Australian story, with well developed characters and a twist that you wont see coming until the climactic end, The Dry wont disappoint. - Mark
Loved it!! I was skeptical at first being a "Crime Thriller" ( not my normal genre )..but I must admit I was totally absorbed from the beginning and didn't want to put it down.
A small country town, definitely with big secrets that are slowly revealed... keeping you guessing throughout with a surprising twist at the end which is very satisfying.
Can't wait for more from this new Australian Author, JANE HARPER. - Roxanne
