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".

A three-day team-building hike in the Australian bush ends in disaster when the unpleasant Alice Russell disappears. Throw in a serial killer, industrial espionage, and several unreliable narrators and you have a tense thriller that made me feel good about my decision never to go camping

I loved The Dry by Jane Harper, I thought it was magnificent, like everybody else did...Fabulous! And her new book Force of Nature...such brilliance. From the first paragraph I was hooked - you just know you're in the hands of a master. She's such an excellent writer and the sense of place is so powerful

Jane Harper, the new Queen of Crime...Even more impressive than The Dry...Harper makes it look easy but she has to pace two narratives without giving too much away, creating an almost unbearable level of suspense...Nature is a hostile, unpredictable force in both of Harper's novels, but her brilliance lies in making it into a test of horribly fallible human nature The Sunday Times
