Gripping read

This is the third book of Jane Harper’s I have read and doesn’t disappoint in terms of a ‘who dunnit’. I still feel like ‘The Dry’ is possibly Jane Harper’s best novel thus far. I didn’t feel I connected with the main character of Kieran or his partner Mia, who took on a somewhat self appointed detective role. Regardless, it is another great Jane Harper novel that does get you hooked and guessing.

Very ordinary

Not the most boring book I’ve ever read - but definitely the most boring book I’ve ever finished.

Great read

Thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it! 3rd book I’ve read from Jane definitely won’t be my last
