The Dry

1 Mins read

It hasn’t rained in Kiewarra for years, but is that really enough to drive a well-loved local farmer to suicide, taking most of his family with him? Or was there something more to it? City cop and ex-Kiewarra resident Aaron Falk has taken it upon himself to investigate, but finds the town has more than one secret to hide. Jane Harper’s debut is sweeping its way through recommended lists and awards in Australia, and is some of the best rural noir we’ve seen recently. Check out the full review here.
