Jane Harper in conversation with Angela Savage about The Lost Man

December 5, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$15 – $20

The Melbourne Athenaeum Library and Sisters in Crime Australia take pleasure in presenting Jane Harper and Angela Savage as they discuss Jane’s latest best-seller, The Lost Man (Pan Macmillan, 2018), a stand-alone thriller set in outback Queensland.

Two brothers meet at the border of their vast cattle properties under the unrelenting sun. They are at the stockman’s grave, a landmark so old that no one can remember who is buried there. But today, it is their middle brother Cameron who lies dead. And so the Bright family’s quiet existence is thrown into grief and anguish. Did Cameron lose hope and walk to his death? Because if he didn’t, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects …
