‘Force of Nature’ by Jane Harper (Aaron Falk #2)

When I read The Dry, Jane Harper’s first instalment in a mystery series set in Australia featuring Aaron Falk, I was so excited because I was looking forward to more from this author. The Dry was so compelling, atmospheric, beautifully written, and had me at the edge of my seat the whole way. So I got the second instalment as soon as I could, but sadly it did not live up to my expectations. Force of Nature was just not as good as The Dry. If you haven’t read The Dry, by all means read it, but if you have, give the second one in this series a pass in favour of The Mountain Story by Lori Lansens. Both are about a group of hikers entering the bush, but coming out minus one. What happened on the trail and why is actually hugely compelling, but in this case Lansens did a much better job of a great premise than Harper did.
