Gente di città. Smarriti senza i cellulari (che comunque non funzionano), incartati in attrezzature nuovissime, confusi davanti alle mappe. Sono dei colletti bianchi, colleghi in una società finanziaria, arrivati sulle Giralang Ranges per un trekking che affinando le tecniche di sopravvivenza dovrebbe cementare lo spirito di gruppo. Dopo qualche giorno faccia a faccia con la natura rientrano tutti al campo base.
Tutti tranne Alice Russell.
Le ricerche partono all’istante: una donna sola e inesperta, seppur dinamica e brillante come Alice, ha poche speranze di sopravvivere nella foresta. Ad affiancare la polizia locale entrano in campo l’agente federale Aaron Falk, reduce dalla dolorosa indagine di Chi è senza peccato, e la sua collega Carmen Cooper, perché Alice non è un’impiegata come gli altri: è l’informatrice-chiave in un’indagine contro la criminalità organizzata e il riciclaggio di denaro sporco che vede coinvolta la sua società. Dunque con ogni probabilità anche chi era con lei sulle Giralang, distese di bellezza selvaggia e ostile rese ancora più inquietanti dal fatto che sono state territorio d’azione del serial killer Martin Kovac.

WHO REALLY KILLED THE HADLER FAMILY?
I just can't understand how someone like him could do something like that.
Amid the worst drought to ravage Australia in a century, it hasn't rained in small country town Kiewarra for two years. Tensions in the community become unbearable when three members of the Hadler family are brutally murdered. Everyone thinks Luke Hadler, who committed suicide after slaughtering his wife and six-year-old son, is guilty.
Policeman Aaron Falk returns to the town of his youth for the funeral of his childhood best friend, and is unwillingly drawn into the investigation. As questions mount and suspicion spreads through the town, Falk is forced to confront the community that rejected him twenty years earlier. Because Falk and Luke Hadler shared a secret, one which Luke's death threatens to unearth. And as Falk probes deeper into the killings, secrets from his past and why he left home bubble to the surface as he questions the truth of his friend's crime.

Is Alice here? Did she make it? Is she safe? In the chaos, in the night, it was impossible to say which of the four had asked after Alice's welfare. Later, when everything got worse, each would insist it had been them.
Five women reluctantly pick up their backpacks and start walking along the muddy track. Only four come out the other side.
The hike through the rugged landscape is meant to take the office colleagues out of their air-conditioned comfort zone and teach resilience and team building. At least that is what the corporate retreat website advertises.
Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk has a particularly keen interest in the whereabouts of the missing bushwalker. Alice Russell is the whistleblower in his latest case - and Alice knew secrets. About the company she worked for and the people she worked with.
Far from the hike encouraging teamwork, the women tell Falk a tale of suspicion, violence and disintegrating trust. And as he delves into the disappearance, it seems some dangers may run far deeper than anyone knew.

He had started to remove his clothes as logic had deserted him, and his skin was cracked. Whatever had been going through Cameron's mind when he was alive, he didn't look peaceful in death.
Two brothers meet at the remote border of their vast cattle properties under the unrelenting sun of the outback. In an isolated part of Australia, they are each other's nearest neighbour, their homes hours apart.
They are at the stockman's grave, a landmark so old that 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 Cameron. Did he choose to walk to his death? Because if he didn't, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects...

“Once again Harper proves that she is peerless in creating an avalanche of suspense with intimate, character-driven set pieces...Harper’s legions of fans will exult in reading Exiles.”
—David Baldacci, #1 New York Times bestselling author
Federal Investigator Aaron Falk is on his way to a small town deep in Southern Australian wine country for the christening of an old friend's baby. But mystery follows him, even on vacation.
This weekend marks the one-year anniversary of Kim Gillespie's disappearance. One year ago, at a busy town festival on a warm spring night, Kim safely tucked her sleeping baby into her stroller, then vanished into the crowd. No one has seen her since. When Kim's older daughter makes a plea for anyone with information about her missing mom to come forward, Falk and his old buddy Raco can't leave the case alone.
As Falk soaks up life in the lush valley, he is welcomed into the tight-knit circle of Kim’s friends and loved ones. But the group may be more fractured than it seems. Between Falk’s closest friend, the missing mother, and a woman he’s drawn to, dark questions linger as long-ago truths begin to emerge. What would make a mother abandon her child? What happened to Kim Gillespie?
Zwei Brüder treffen sich am Zaun, der ihre Farmen voneinander trennt. Tief im Outback sind sie einander die einzigen Nachbarn. Ihre Häuser liegen vier Stunden Autofahrt voneinander entfernt. Cam, der mittlere Bruder, der die Familienranch verwaltete, liegt tot zu ihren Füßen. Er ist allein in der Hitze gestorben. Die beiden Männer bringen ihren Bruder heim auf die Ranch. Aber in der tiefen Trauer wächst das Misstrauen. Was, wenn Cam keines natürlichen Todes gestorben ist? Was, wenn Isolation und Einsamkeit hier im Nirgendwo die Menschen verändern - zum Bösen?
A small town hides big secrets in The Dry, an atmospheric, page-turning debut mystery by award-winning author Jane Harper.
After getting a note demanding his presence, Federal Agent Aaron Falk arrives in his hometown for the first time in decades to attend the funeral of his best friend, Luke. Twenty years ago when Falk was accused of murder, Luke was his alibi. Falk and his father fled under a cloud of suspicion, saved from prosecution only because of Luke’s steadfast claim that the boys had been together at the time of the crime. But now more than one person knows they didn’t tell the truth back then, and Luke is dead.
Amid the worst drought in a century, Falk and the local detective question what really happened to Luke. As Falk reluctantly investigates to see if there’s more to Luke’s death than there seems to be, long-buried mysteries resurface, as do the lies that have haunted them. And Falk will find that small towns have always hidden big secrets.

Nun aber hat er mit seiner Freundin Mia ein Kind und glaubt, die Vergangenheit hinter sich lassen zu können. Kurz nach seiner Rückkehr jedoch wird am Strand eine tote Frau gefunden – und plötzlich brechen alte Wunden wieder auf. Bald wird Kiernan klar, dass dieser Mord mit ihm zu tun hat – und mit all dem, was während des Sturms vor zwölf Jahren geschah und niemals wirklich ans Tageslicht kam.
