The mystery is solid but lacking some surprising or even thrilling twists and turns. There were also a couple of minor (unfinished) threads I wasn't quite sure why they were in the story in the first place and overall I expected more of a psychological approach especially because we follow a group of people having to make difficult decisions in situations they have never been in. But taken as a whole Jane Harper wrote another good book I enjoyed and couldn't put down (mainly due to short chapters that always make me want to read just one more), in my opinion "Force of Nature" wasn't as gripping as its predecessor though. Nevertheless I hope there will be a third instalment in this series and I am also really looking forward to the release of her next standalone novel "The Lost Man".

FIVE WENT OUT. FOUR CAME BACK...
Is Alice here? Did she make it? Is she safe? In the chaos, in the night, it was impossible to say which of the four had asked after Alice's welfare. Later, when everything got worse, each would insist it had been them.
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 landscape 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.
