FORCE OF NA­TURE by Jane Harper, Pan Macmil­lan.

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - BOOKS - LM

Even be­fore she sets out on a chal­leng­ing team-build­ing hike with her col­leagues, sin­gle mum Alice Rus­sell is in a bit of strife. Fed­eral Po­lice Agent Aaron Falk has been putting pres­sure on her to blow the whis­tle on the shady financial deal­ings of her bosses. So when she doesn’t make it out of the Gi­ralang Ranges with her co-work­ers, he’s one of the first on the scene. Jane Harper’s fol­low up to her best-seller The Dry, is as thick with me­nace as the bush that seems to swal­low the dif­fi­cult Alice. Has the se­rial killer who once used the area left a deadly legacy? Or have the trou­bles the women brought with them proven to be lethal? Force of Na­ture cuts be­tween past and present, cor­po­rate and do­mes­tic, and ce­ments its au­thor as one of Aus­tralia’s bold­est thriller writ­ers.
