Meet the Author: Jane Harper


Meet the Author: Jane Harper


We are very excited to announce that Jane Harper is coming back to Riverbend!  Join us on Wednesday 4th of October at 6.30pm as Jane speaks in conversation with Suzy Wilson about her gripping new crime novel, Force of Nature.

Fans of last year's multi-ward winning The Dry (and we know there are many of you) will be thrilled to welcome the return of Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk in this new page turning thriller. The Dry has been a Riverbend favourite since it's release, and we can't wait to chat to Jane about this brilliant new crime novel.

About the Book...

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.
