Jane Harper Force of Nature
Five women go on a hike. Only four return.
When a group of colleagues are forced to participate in a team-building exercise in the Giralang Ranges, they reluctantly start walking down the muddy track.
But Alice Russell doesn't appear at the other end. Her last phone call was to Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk.
Alice is the whistleblower in his latest corporate fraud case and as he pursues the investigation, Falk uncovers a tangled web of suspicion and betrayal.
How well do we know the people we work with?

PRAISE FOR FORCE OF NATURE
"Force of Nature bristles with wit; it crackles with suspense; it radiates atmosphere. An astonishing book from an astonishing writer" A.J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window
"I loved The Dry. Force of Nature is even better. Brilliantly paced, it wrong-foots the reader like a rocky trail through the bush" Susie Steiner, author of Missing, Presumed and Persons Unknown
"Lord of the Flies in the Australian outback, with grown women in place of school boys. I loved every chilling moment of it. A blistering follow-up to The Dry from one of the best new voices in crime fiction" Sarah Hilary, author the DI Marnie Rome series
"...once again Harper manages to touch on something mythic in the Australian experience of the land" The Age
"The narrative is finely constructed, with perfectly measured pace and suspense. So much so that it reminded me of another master of form, Liane Moriarty. As with Moriarty, Harper has that rare touch that manages to cross the genre divide and appeal more widely to general readers" The Saturday Paper
"Harper's mastery of pace makes Force Of Nature one of 2017's best thrillers" Elle Magazine
"Gripping thriller will have readers hooked" The Sunday Telegraph
"Force of Nature proves Jane Harper, author of The Dry, is no one-hit wonder. Its premise is instantly gripping" The Herald Sun
