Two brothers meet at the remote fence line separating their cattle ranches in the lonely outback. In an isolated belt of Queensland, they are each other’s nearest neighbor, their homes a four hours’ drive apart.

The third brother lies dead at their feet.

Something caused Cam, the middle child, who had been in charge of the family homestead, to die alone in the middle of nowhere.

So the eldest brother returns with his younger sibling to the family property and those left behind. But the fragile balance of the ranch is threatened. Amid the grief, suspicion starts to take hold, and the eldest brother begins to wonder if more than one among them is at risk of crumbling as the weight of isolation bears down on them all.

Editorial Reviews:

“Ms. Harper is not one to drop a fact…without using it later…If you enjoy being hoodwinked…you’ll love Ms. Harper’s sleight of hand… A secret on every page… Ms. Harper has made her own major mark.” —The New York Times

“Harper continues the intense plotting and detail for characters and setting that she established in The Dry.” Associated Press

“[Harper] is such a good storyteller… The ease with which she shifts points of view and somehow makes disagreeable people sympathetic is special. So is her skill at ratcheting up the suspense. Harper, anything but a flash in the pan, has again raised the bar for emerging crime writers.” —Chicago Tribune

“Accomplished crime thriller author Jane Harper layers her story as thick as the brush in The Outback….Fans of her debut book The Dry will find Force of Nature lives up to the exciting expectations Harper is becoming known for building.” —Florida Times-Union

“Harper is adept at stripping away the thin skin of civility as the characters begin to feel fear out in the wild…Satisfying and suspenseful.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Harper writes with precision and creates a tense atmosphere on the brink of combustion.” —Real Simple
