Summary:

A small town hides big secrets in The Dry, an atmospheric debut mystery by award-winning author Jane Harper.

After getting a note demanding his presence, Federal Agent Aaron Falk arrives in his hometown for the first time in decades to attend the funeral of his best friend, Luke. Twenty years ago when Falk was accused of murder, Luke was his alibi. Falk and his father fled under a cloud of suspicion, saved from prosecution only because of Luke's steadfast claim that the boys had been together at the time of the crime. But now more than one person knows they didn't tell the truth back then, and Luke is dead.

Amid the worst drought in a century, Falk and the local detective question what really happened to Luke. As Falk reluctantly investigates to see if there's more to Luke's death than there seems to be, long-buried mysteries resurface, as do the lies that have haunted them. And Falk will find that small towns have always hidden big secrets.

    Loved the story. I did have to pay close attention to what was happening, as it switches from present day and the past. Narrator is great!

    My 1st audio book. It was a great story you could not tell what was going to happen next.

    Hard to tell what was going on.... maybe it was the Aussie accent or the way it was written but I just couldn't get into it. And I didn't really care what happened to the characters either. it was just a bit jumbled in construction I was not happy with it
