Three brothers, one death, a fenceline stretching to the horizon.
Two brothers meet at the border of their vast cattle properties under the unrelenting sun of outback Queensland.
They are 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.
The Bright family's quiet existence is thrown into grief and anguish.
Something had been troubling Cam. Did he lose hope and 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.

Vast. Empty. Oppressively hot. Lonely.
Jane Harper's latest book is so scenic, so familiar, I couldn't stop picturing this expansive outback Queensland station. Some of the properties described were the same size as the state of Victoria, mind blowing to the city girl I am.
I loved the mystery of this book. It's absolutely extraordinary, but so realistic, the description of our Lost Man, crawling through the sand, trying to stay in shade to avoid his death, it haunted me long after I finished the book. - Karina (QBD)
