“A family of three is murdered, supposedly by the father, who shoots himself afterward. No one is overly surprised since farmers are barely scraping by due to a very long dry spell. Into this situation walks a cop who left the town 20 years earlier while under suspicion for another death. Stakes get higher, and you can taste the dry wind.”
— Olga Onal, Bookmiser, Roswell, GA

*INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*

*Winner of the CWA's Gold Dagger Award*

"A breathless page-turner, driven by the many revelations Ms. Harper dreams up...You'll love her] sleight of hand...A secret on every page." --The New York Times

A small town hides big secrets in The Dry, an atmospheric debut mystery by award-winning author Jane Harper.

After getting a note demanding his presence, Federal Agent Aaron Falk arrives in his hometown for the first time in decades to attend the funeral of his best friend, Luke. Twenty years ago when Falk was accused of murder, Luke was his alibi. Falk and his father fled under a cloud of suspicion, saved from prosecution only because of Luke's steadfast claim that the boys had been together at the time of the crime. But now more than one person knows they didn't tell the truth back then, and Luke is dead.

Amid the worst drought in a century, Falk and the local detective question what really happened to Luke. As Falk reluctantly investigates to see if there's more to Luke's death than there seems to be, long-buried mysteries resurface, as do the lies that have haunted them. And Falk will find that small towns have always hidden big secrets.
