The Dry (Aaron Falk #1) Reviews

  • Jen

    Whoa, well done, Harper! I did not see that twist coming and just when I thought I had it all figured out, that theory was shot to hell. Brilliant.

    This story is set in the bush in Kiewarra, Australia, where a murder suicide has taken place in a community where a drought is on. Falk, a cop who has come back for the funeral, is coaxed into staying to dig into the truth of what really happened to the family. A past is reawakened, secrets are kept close and many don't want him there for the ties he

    In my personal opinion, if this isn't a 5-star read, then I don't know what is. Impeccable.

    Atmospheric and beautifully written, this is part police procedural, part thriller/murder mystery. It opens with a bang and will have you glued until the very last page. This is one of those books that you will find yourself trying to sneak in pages here and there, whenever you have a single spare moment, because you will want to know how it ends. Absolutely unputdownable, I finished this in 24 hours and

    So this is a really good debut novel about a farming community in Australia, the murder of a young family..father, mother, young son, but their baby left unharmed.

    This story also goes back and forth from present time to 20 yrs earlier when this father and his group of four friends were growing up there.

    One of the group, Falk, is now a cop from the another city, who comes to town for the funeral of his friend and his family, and ends up on the case to try and find the killer. There are lots of p

    Mere days ago, I was inundated by water. Water, water, everywhere… Rivers overflowing … and suddenly I find myself transported to a land where rain hadn’t fallen in nearly two years.

    The farmers told themselves that the drought wouldn’t last, said those words to each other, and to themselves

    The Dry by Jane Harper is a 2017 Flatiron Books publication.

    This is my kind of mystery/thriller!

    When Aaron returns to his hometown to attend the funeral of his childhood friend, Luke, he intends to make a retreat back to his life as a federal agent, as quickly as possible.

    But, Luke’s grieving parents ask him to use his talents to look into Luke’s financial affairs, in hopes of finding answers as to why their son killed his wife and son and then shot himself. The chances are slim to none that A

    Holy Cow!  What a wonderful book!  This book definitely had all my senses on high alert while reading this one!  

    The mood, the atmosphere, the setting, the tone, the format…..

    "Her goodbye as she left was as dry as the fields."

    THE DRY by JANE HARPER is an absolutely engrossing and compelling whodunit crime mystery / thriller that drew me in right from the very first chapter to the very last page!

    JANE HARPER delivers a clever, atmospheric, suspenseful, impressive, and very descriptive read here wh

    *4.5 stars!*

    What a book. I had to sleep on this one. Not like, right on top of it, it was just a little to the left of my pillow, but I needed time to process. It’s not as though this read was so incredibly intoxicating that I couldn't wrap my head around it—quite the contrary, actually.

    The pace is steady and slow, verging on dull at times but never quite crossing that line. The plot itself is packed with twists, but they felt gentle and weren't especially shocking.

    So what did it for me? The a

    This beautifully written mystery transported me to Kiewarra, Australia, a small farming community that is suffering from a drought, and also from being mired in the past.

    Aaron Falk, a federal financial police officer, reluctantly returns to Kiewarra to attend the funeral of his former best friend, Luke Hadler. It appears that Luke committed a murder suicide, killing his wife, Karen, and their six-year-old son, Billy, before taking his own life. The community is in shock and speculation abounds.
