The Bright family's quiet existence is thrown into grief and anguish. Something had 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... For readers who loved The Dry and Force of Nature, Jane Harper has once again created a powerful story of suspense, set against a dazzling landscape.

Man Booker judges for 2019, are you listening?' New Zealand Herald Weekend Magazine 'I started it at noon and at 2am that night I closed it and totally understood what all the fuss was about. It was even better than The Dry' The Age 'In The Lost Man, Jane Harper surpasses her achievement in The Dry, her multi-award winning first novel. A broad range of Australian and international readers will be engaged by the strong setting and mystery storyline of the new novel' Weekend Australian 'Like the country it describes, this is a "big" book, and one likely to cement Harper's place as one of the most interesting Australian crime writers to emerge in the past decade. Her sense of place is acute, but it is her attention to the relationships that are shaped by this unforgiving, magnificent landscape that will linger long after the mystery of stockman's grave is finally revealed.' Sue Turnbull, Sydney Morning Herald 'In just a couple of years, Jane Harper has soared into the first rank of contemporary crime writers. The Lost Man...returns to the parched landscape she used to such powerful effect in her debut, The Dry ...Three generations of women - the dead man's mother, wife and daughters - struggle to come to terms with terrible events, and the family's shocking history holds the key to this super murder mystery' Sunday Times (UK) 'In The Lost Man as in Harper's previous two novels, place is paramount, a multifaceted character that's in turns brutal and breathtaking.' Washington Post '[A] crime masterpiece. The landscape and culture of this remote Australian territory are magnificently evoked as a story of family secrets unfolds. Rarely does a puzzle so complicated fit together perfectly - you'll be shaking your head in amazement.' People Magazine Book of the Week 'Fabulously atmospheric, the book starts slowly and gradually picks up pace towards a jaw-dropping denouement' Guardian

Neanderthal Man


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

A preeminent geneticist hunts the Neanderthal genome to answer the biggest question of them all: what does it mean to be human? What can we learn from the genes of our closest evolutionary relatives? Neanderthal Man tells the story of geneticist Svante Pääbo's mission to answer that question, beginning with the study of DNA in Egyptian mummies in the early 1980s and culminating in his sequencing of the Neanderthal genome in 2009. From Pääbo, we learn how Neanderthal genes offer a unique window into the lives of our hominin relatives and may hold the key to unlocking the mystery of why humans survived while Neanderthals went extinct. Drawing on genetic and fossil clues, Pääbo explores what is known about the origin of modern humans and their relationship to the Neanderthals and describes the fierce debate surrounding the nature of the two species' interactions. A riveting story about a visionary researcher and the nature of scientific inquiry, Neanderthal Man offers rich insight into the fundamental question of who we are.
