The Dry Press Reviews

'It is hard to believe that this accomplished piece of writing, which returns again and again to the savage beauty of the landscape, is Harper's first novel' Sunday Times, Crime Book of the Month January 2017

'Wonderfully atmospheric, The Dry is both a riveting murder mystery and a beautifully wrought picture of a rural community under extreme pressure' Mail on Sunday Thriller of the Week, January 2017

'A stunningly atmospheric read' Val McDermid, bestselling author of Out of Bounds

'One of the most assured crime debuts I've encountered in many years ... It grips like a vice from first paragraph to last, atmospherically evoking the small town of Kiewarra ... Told with heart-breaking precision and emotional power ... If you read only one crime novel this year make it this one' Daily Mail
