The dry

The Dry / Jane Harper, 328 pgs.

Federal agent Aaron Falk returns to his childhood hometown after 20 years away.  He and his father left under negative circumstances but he has kept in touch with his childhood friend Luke.  Now he is returning for Luke's funeral.  Not only his friend is dead, but his wife and young child too.  The drought that has affected the area for years has been a real grind on this farming community.  People are highly stressed and going broke thus the town is becoming poorer and poorer.  Did Luke finally lose his cool, killing his family and then committing suicide?  or is there more to the story.  The suspects abound and the story is compelling.
