The Dry (Aaron Falk #1) Reviews

  • Karen

    So this is a really good debut novel about a farming community in Australia, the murder of a young family..father, mother, young son, but their baby left unharmed.

    This story also goes back and forth from present time to 20 yrs earlier when this father and his group of four friends were growing up there.

    One of the group, Falk, is now a cop from the another city, who comes to town for the funeral of his friend and his family, and ends up on the case to try and find the killer. There are lots of p

    Whoa, well done, Harper! I did not see that twist coming and just when I thought I had it all figured out, that theory was shot to hell. Brilliant.

    This story is set in the bush in Kiewarra, Australia, where a murder suicide has taken place in a community where a drought is on. Falk, a cop who has come back for the funeral, is coaxed into staying to dig into the truth of what really happened to the family. A past is reawakened, secrets are kept close and many don't want him there for the ties he

    This beautifully written mystery transported me to Kiewarra, Australia, a small farming community that is suffering from a drought, and also from being mired in the past.

    Aaron Falk, a federal financial police officer, reluctantly returns to Kiewarra to attend the funeral of his former best friend, Luke Hadler. It appears that Luke committed a murder suicide, killing his wife, Karen, and their six-year-old son, Billy, before taking his own life. The community is in shock and speculation abounds.

    First on the scene, the flies swarmed contentedly in the heat as the blood pooled black over tiles and carpet. Outside, washing hung still on the rotary line, bone dry and stiff from the sun. A child's scooter lay abandoned on the stepping stone path. Just one human heart beat within a kilometer radius of the farm. So nothing reacted when deep inside the house, the baby started crying...

    An entertaining, easy & quick read. Well written psychological crime thriller, full of tension and atmosp

    If I’d known, I would have done things differently. It was too late for that now. Some things had to be lived with.


    The Dry is such a heavy and ‘adult’ book: not in the sexual content or violence, although there were several stomach-churning descriptions, no, it’s such an ‘adult book’ in the sense of maturity, with hardships, human disconnections and buried secrets.

    The book simply felt genuine and full of emotions. Do books have emotions anyhow? Well, It certainly made me full of emotions, I c ...more

    This was the first book in a new series and I was really surprised on how much I loved this book. The book is utterly addictive, and I found it hard to take a break from it, reading it within a couple of days. Jane has managed to create realistic characters, dealing with very realistic situations. You often feel that you are standing in Aaron Falk’s shoes, as you start to feel his emotions moving through your body. My favorite part about this book was how everyone was a suspect. When I had final

    I went into this book knowing the hype was high and many of my Goodreads friends loved it. I was hoping to temper my expectations but I shouldn’t have been worried. This was an excellent book my friends!

    I can’t believe this is Jane Harper’s debut novel. I’m impressed by her writing and storytelling. The Dry was gripping from the beginning to the end. No joke.

    The book starts with Aaron Falk coming back home for the funeral of Luke Hadler. Aaron is a federal investigator living in Melbourne and wa

    "Officially the worse conditions in a century" .....Melbourne, Australia.

    "The weather pattern had a bad name" ----"El Nino" ----in "The Dry".

    "El Nino" refers to "the little boy", so named because the pool of warm water in the Pacific near South America is often at the warmest around Christmas. The original name, El Niño de Navidad, traces its origin centuries back to Peruvian fisherman, Who named the weather phenomenon in reference to the newborn Christ.
