"Two brothers meet at the remote fence line separating their cattle ranches in the lonely outback. In an isolated belt of Queensland, they are each other's nearest neighbor, their homes four hours' drive apart. The third brother lies dead at their feet. Something caused Cam, the middle child who had been in charge of the family homestead, to die alone in the middle of nowhere. So the eldest brother returns with his younger sibling to the family property and those left behind. But the fragile balance of the ranch is threatened. Amidst the grief, suspicion starts to take hold, and the eldest brother begins to wonder if more than one among them is at risk of crumbling as the weight of isolation bears down on them all." -- Amazon.… (lisätietoja)

Let me start off with simply saying this is one of the best books I’ve read lately. I realize now that Jane Harper is in the same group for me as Tana French, her books are layered looks at the human condition, with incredible insights and revelations, that are centered around crimes, but are not crime novels as such. They are literature and this one took my breath away. The final section and line were so perfect it made my eyes tear up. “The Lost Man” in the title refers to lots of folks, some lost locationally in the Outback, but others lost emotionally or spiritually. It ends up being about finding yourself and being at peace with who you discover. I appreciated the way Ms. Harper looks at how damaging it is to judge or to judge yourself by the worst thing you have done. That can become a trap where you pay a price way out of proportion to whatever acts you may have committed. How do we forgive, especially ourselves? It is hard and this book shows it in a nuanced and complete way. The landscape where it takes place is unremittingly harsh and, like in her first book “The Dry”, I often felt parched myself while reading. There are so many precautions one has to take on an ongoing basis just to live. Most of the story is about family and the incredible complexity that families can have. How far does family loyalty go? What really is a family? Finally there is much damage done because of rumor instead of fact, a totally relevant idea for our time. This type of remote and harsh landscape creates a world that is like an island where people are shipwrecked. The same insularity leads to a lot of gossip and the impact of it can be life changing. I won’t discuss the plot, as usual, but trust me it is interesting and well played out. The combination of that propulsive story and the incredible character development make this a six star book out of five. And that last line…sigh. ( )

Beautifully written, deeply felt novel about the prices you pay for the choices you make in life.

Once again, Harper uses the structure of a thriller (intriguing mystery, whodunnit, whydunnit, etc etc) as a scaffold for bigger and, I believe, better things. The mysterious death of Cameron Bright, which we see channelled through the perspective of his unhappy, outcast brother Nathan, is merely a jumping off point for a thoughtful, subtle examination of the lives and choices made by the whole Bright family and those in their orbit: marrying the wrong person; marrying in haste, repenting at leisure; "choosing" to live in an environment where your nearest neighbour is a three hour drive away, and so hostile that the smallest mistake in your daily routine can quickly become a matter of life and death. (Although Harper vividly illustrates that such choices can be based on an accumulation of "micro-choices" so subtle that you don't even notice what you've done ... until you're trapped.)

Particularly wrenching to read as wildfires wreak havoc on parts of Australia -- Harper can really capture the stark beauty of the landscape, and the reasons why anyone would want to live there, in spite of the cost. What a beautiful and rewarding life it could be, if done in the right spirit -- and with the right people.

If I have just one criticism, it's that the Legend of the Stockman's Grave is, well, beaten to death with a stick. Yes, we get it -- the grave, and the legend behind it, is a mirror held up to each character, reflecting their true thoughts about their place in the landscape, and in their extended Outback families. (And, sorry, I was screaming LOOK BEHIND THE BL**DY PICTURE from about the first time we saw Cameron's painting of the grave ...)

But that's a very mild, and easily tolerated criticism of a book that is well worth reading, by an author who is well worth following, especially if you want a mystery that resists the usual formulae ( )

Jane Harper’s THE LOST MAN is one of the best mystery/suspense novels I have ever read. If you read and loved THE DRY, one of her previous books, you’ll love THE LOST MAN. If you haven’t read THE DRY, you’ll want to after you read THE LOST MAN.

Nathan, the eldest of three brothers, discovers the body of Cameron, another one of the brothers, in the outback desert. There begins the mystery: how did he end up in this predicament when his car is loaded with supplies to sustain him? Was this suicide or was it murder? If murder, who had cause to hate him this much?

You would expect that a Harper book would take place in Australia. But her descriptions of the outback, in particular, where the brothers and the rest of the family live and work, made me actually see its vastness and feel the desolation, danger, and heat they dealt with.

Here is a book you won’t want to end. When I got there, it felt too soon. ( )

Two brothers meet at the remote fence line separating their cattle ranches in the lonely outback. The third brother lies dead at their feet. Something caused Cam, the middle child who had been in charge of the family homestead, to die alone in the middle of nowhere. So the eldest brother returns with his younger sibling to the family property and those left behind. Amidst the grief, suspicion starts to take hold, and the eldest brother begins to wonder if more than one among them is at risk of crumbling as the weight of isolation bears down on them all.

This was a well-told story of 3 brothers, their families, and their resentments, conflicts, secrets and family loyalties. The characters were very believable and really drew me into their lives. The remoteness and harsh climate of their location also added tension as it was dangerous to be unprepared to deal with the elements. There were many small surprises along the way and a big one at the end that I didn’t see coming. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to Harper’s next one. ( )

To me, this book is all about atmosphere. If you want to feel immersed in the hot, dry, dusty and desolate outback, to feel the distance from society coupled with the suffocation of your family, you will like this mystery. If not, you may find it tedious and the red herrings obvious.
