Summary
"Federal Agent Aaron Falk hasn't been back to the place where he grew up in twenty years. Not since he and his father were run out of town. Even when Falk gets word that his childhood best friend, Luke, is dead, his entire family murdered, Falk still isn't planning on going back. But then he gets a note: 'Luke lied. You lied. Be at the funeral.' And just like that, Falk is swept back into the secrets of the place and people he left so long ago. Amid the worst drought in a century, long-buried mysteries will resurface. And Falk will discover anew what he's known all along -- sometimes you have to go back home in order to finally leave your past behind." -- Back cover

Summary
In this highly acclaimed debut novel by an Australian journalist, Melbourne-based federal agent Aaron Falk receives a troubling note from the father of his childhood best friend: "You lied. Luke lied. Be at the funeral." Against a backdrop of the worst drought the small town of Kiewarra has seen in a century, which is causing financial problems for just about everyone, Falk returns to his hometown for the first time since he was a teen. Even though his expertise is in financial crimes and he hasn't talked to Luke in years, he agrees with his friend's dad: Luke didn't kill his wife and daughter and then himself. Teaming up with Raco, the newly arrived local cop, Falk confronts the fallout of 20-year-old false alibis and a long-ago death. Richly detailed and beautifully plotted, The Dry is set to catch fire. -- Description by Dawn Towery
