Review: The Dry

The Dry The Dry by Jane Harper
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An apparent murder-suicide of a young family in the outback of Australia leaves a small town unsettled and looking for answers.
I'm not a mystery reader, so my opinion may be biased. I thought the story, for the most part, was a snoozer. Nothing really happened until the last 100 pages. And even then I'm not sure the "twist" was that much of a shocker. The final moments were alarming, but by then I was ready for it to be over.
I'm still not sure what the Australian definition of "bugger" means.
