    Jane Harper shifts her setting from the devastating drought in The Dry to the equally hostile atmospheric environment of the Giralong Ranges, tough to negotiate, with its menacing history of Martin Kovac, a serial killer that still haunts the area, vivid in peoples memories and nightmares. Five women are on a corporate team building hike run by Executive Adventures, only four return. Federal Agent Aaron Falk of the Melbourne Financial Investigati...

    I loved her thriller, The Dry, for a first novel it was fantastic. Actually would have been fantastic even if it wasn't her first, but even more so since it was. Excited to read this, her second, and I'll just say that the infamous sophomore slump is not in evidence. This time Aaron Falk and his partner Carmen are called to the Giralang Range, where a woman is missing. A team building trip, men go one way, five men go another, all to meet up at t...

    I love the subtle elegance of Harper's writing. Force of Nature didn't have the magic of The Dry (at least for my reading experience), and I wish there had been more of Aaron Falk. However, this is still a worthy read!Full review to come!

Well, as we later find out: a LOT!First of all, to force people to go on a company function for an entire weekend with coworkers they do not get along with is just cruel. And yet it happens... this is the setup for this charged and interesting novel. The novel takes place in the Australian wilderness an...

    I’d really enjoyed Harper’s debut novel The Dry which introduced us to Federal Agent Aaron Falk and explored a mystery from his past, amid the worst drought in a century in a small Australian town. It was tense and atmospheric and I loved the Aussie setting and the brash characters – a refreshing change from my normal diet of American crime fiction. So I was delighted to get my hands on this follow-up book, but would it suffer the curse of ...

    My first thought upon opening this book and reading a few pages was how well this author writes. Her descriptions of the Australian bush are real, her characters are believable and multi faceted and speak to each other like real human beings. I knew at once I was in for an enjoyable read.I am very glad I have never worked in an office culture where employees who have barely any experience of hiking and camping are expected to go bush for three da...

    3.5★ (rounded up to 4 because I like her writing too much to round down to 3)“The Melbourne hiker was still missing. The road gently swung to the north and suddenly Falk could see the hills of the Giralang Ranges on the horizon . . . he had grown up in a place not unlike it. Isolated terrain, where trees grew thick and dense on land that was reluctant to let anything escape.”Aaron Falk and his new off-sider are off to the bush to follow the...
