"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.… (mehr)

My first adult book in a long time!

A satisfactory mystery set in (my weakness) an isolated, harsh environment. ( )

As the cover says "Three Brothers, One Death, No Answers..." The death & the "no answers" is the mystery which we learn about immediately. Then it's all character development. I'm at 20% and there is zero thriller. We are learning about the brothers and their family, where they live in the Outback and the family history.

I love the prologue something fierce: From above, from a distance, the marks in the dust formed a tight circle. The circle was far from perfect, with a distorted edge that grew thick, then thin, and broke completely in places. It also wasn't empty..." I didn't pre-research so my brain was having a hard time deciphering. I couldn't even remember what genre the book was. So I'm thinking the circle is caused by aliens, maybe magic... then I found out what it was and my heart sunk a little.

@ about 50% I'm fully vested in the family now. That took awhile. I often dislike sitting in confusion as facts are revealed. The "all will be clear by the end of the book" ugh. But the way this author reveals facts is lovely. Often a memory as someone is sitting at a table with someone. We are getting a family history in the harsh Outback and their current lives as we try to figure out the mystery. Well done.

@ 100% the author has a new fan. I don't even like mysteries but as a GRs friend said, calling it a mystery is too shallow. Reading her review convinced me to read it and now that I've just re-read her review I can appreciate how spot on it is and how well she writes reviews.

For those challenge lovers, keep this one in mind if you need a book that takes place in a scorching hot setting. The environment is portrayed as vividly as a character.

It was a pleasure to read but I only gave it 4* because I usually save that for books I'll re-read or request to be buried with. ( )

I never read Jane Harper and was intrigued by the cover description. I have to admit, I was NOT disappointed. Her description of the Australian outback and her beautiful prose, kept me intrigued throughout. I highly recommend the book - it truly was a look at the human psyche and how we all handle the events that life may deal to us. ( )

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. ( )

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. ( )
