Two brothers meet at the border of their vast cattle properties in the outback of Queensland. They meet at the stockman’s grave where they find their brother, Cameron, dead. The Bright family’s quiet existence is thrown into grief and anguish. Something has been troubling Cameron; did he lose hope and walk to his death? Because if he didn’t, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects.
This is more than just a thriller, it is an emotional and character-driven tales about families and abuse. Harper writes so well that you feel like you are in the Australian outback. The stories about the characters pasts shape the present and are entwined beautifully.
This isn’t a book full of twists and turns that will shock you, but you will still find yourself turning the pages, wanting to know what happened to Cameron.
