From the bestselling author of The Dry

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 - in just a matter of days she was to provide the documents that will bring down the company she works for.

Falk discovers that far from the hike encouraging teamwork, the women tell a tale of suspicion, violence and disintegrating trust. But does it include murder?


" ... once again Harper manages to touch on something mythic in the Australian experience of the land" The Age

"The narrative is finely constructed, with perfectly measured pace and suspense. So much so that it reminded me of another master of form, Liane Moriarty. As with Moriarty, Harper has that rare touch that manages to cross the genre divide and appeal more widely to general readers" The Saturday Paper

"Harper's mastery of pace makes Force Of Nature one of 2017's best thrillers" Elle Magazine

"Gripping thriller will have readers hooked" The Sunday Telegraph

"Force of Nature proves Jane Harper, author of The Dry, is no one-hit wonder. Its premise is instantly gripping" The Herald Sun


"A breathless page-turner" The New York Times

"One of the most stunning debuts I've ever read ... Read it!" David Baldacci

"Devastating debut ... a suspenseful tale of sound and fury" Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A nail-biting thriller ... this fine debut will keep readers on edge and awake long past bedtime." Kirkus, starred review


  • disappointing

    Force of Nature Jane Harper’s first book the Dry with the main character Aaron Falk, was such a good read and I was so looking forward to reading her next book (Force of Nature ) however I had to literally force my self to finish this book. I was expecting so much more and it just did not deliver, so disappointing.
  • Easy to read and couldn’t put down!

    I read Jane Harper’s first book ‘The Dry’ in 2 days and couldn’t resist buying this one at the airport. Both books kept me guessing at every turn and were so easy to read! Love this author!

    Absolutely loved “The Dry” and not let down by Jane Harper’s new Aussie set story “Force of Nature”. Engaging true to life characters and more insight into Falk’s personality came through. Fabulous well-knitted plot full of twists and turns which kept the reader guessing of a number of possible outcomes. Can’t wait for more novels by this outstanding Aussie author, Jane Harper. What a treasure!
  • HOOKED!!

    I didn't guess the ending for one second and that never happens! Loved it but wish it had a bit more romance in it!
  • Force of Nature,

    By Anne, Canberra
    Excellent story, precisely structured and excellently written. If possible, better than her previous novel, The Dry. Absolutely recommend this book.
  • Excellent Again

    By SamHKennedy
    Like The Dry with drought this new book by Jane Harper has the familiarity of Australian Bush in the cold almost suffocating you. A story that kept me enthralled until the end.
  • Disappointing

    By Jangus007
    Definitely no where near as good as her first one....
  • When’s her next novel??!

    By J4C
    I can’t remember how I came across her first novel, The Dry, but I ate it up I read it so fast. So it was no surprise I pre-ordered her second. What’s surprising is that I ate that even faster and now am left wanting more. I will keep and eye out and pre-order every book. I love the Aussie taste but the style of writing and characters are what keeps me coming back.
