Jane Harper, in conversation with Leigh Redhead about Force of Nature

October 9, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Join Jane Harper, who won two Davitts (Best Adult Novel and Readers’ Choice) for  THE DRY,  in conversation with crime author Leigh Redhead* about Jane’s new novel FORCE OF NATURE.

Five women reluctantly pick up their backpacks and start walking along the muddy track. Only four come out the other side.

The hike through the rugged Giralang Ranges is meant to take the office colleagues out of their air-conditioned comfort zone and teach resilience and team building. At least that is what the corporate retreat website advertises.

Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk has a particularly keen interest in the whereabouts of the missing bushwalker. Alice Russell is the whistleblower in his latest case – and Alice knew secrets. About the company she worked for and the people she worked with.

Far from the hike encouraging teamwork, the women tell Falk a tale of suspicion, violence and disintegrating trust. And as he delves into the disappearance, it seems some dangers may run far deeper than anyone knew.
