When five colleagues are forced to go on a corporate retreat in the wilderness, they reluctantly pick up their backpacks and start walking down the muddy path. But one of the women doesn't come out of the woods. And each of her companions tells a slightly different story about what happened. Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk has a keen interest in the whereabouts of the missing hiker. In an investigation that takes him deep into isolated forest, Falk discovers secrets lurking in the mountains, and a tangled web of personal and professional friendship, suspicion, and betrayal among the hikers. But did that lead to murder?… (mais)

The second story featuring Aaron Falk where he and his partner Carmen are drawn into an investigation into the disappearance of Alice Russell on a corporate outdoor adventure challenge. As the story evolves the reader and the investigating officers become aware of the web that weaves many of the participants together. Falk and Carmen feel some guilt as they had been pressurizing Alice to supply them with financial details of the company she worked for as they were believed to be money launderers. Had her role for them been uncovered and exposed her to risk or even death? A few red herrings are laid to keep the reader engaged. This is one of the few writers whose crime fiction I read.
It left me realizing these team building weekends sound awful. ( )

One Friday night, eight colleagues head into the Australian bush on a corporate team-building event. The men follow one route, the women another. On Sunday, the women return much later than scheduled, and one of them is missing. The police are called, and search and rescue teams begin their work. The missing woman, Alice Russell, is a key figure in a money laundering investigation led by Aaron Falk, and had left a faint and garbled voice mail for Aaron over the weekend. Falk realizes he may have been the last person to hear from Alice, and joins the search effort along with his partner Carmen Cooper.

The women lost the trail on the second day, which caused them to miss the depot where they could replenish supplies. They had been required to surrender their phones before departure; Alice secretly held on to hers but it didn’t matter, there was no signal to be found. On their own with no way to get help, tensions escalated as their resources dwindled. The women told police that Alice simply walked away from their campsite during the night, and was not seen again. Was she a victim of an accident, or foul play? Was someone from her own group out to get her because she knew too much about the money laundering? It seems like every member of the group is a bit shifty and a possible suspect.

Investigators have little to go on other than interviews, but readers are privy to a day-by-day narrative of the women’s trek and power dynamics at play in the group. Suspense builds as this narrative and the investigation converge, leading to a resolution that had been just out of reach but, once revealed, made complete sense. ( )

Another solid entry into the Falk series. These aren't flashingly brilliant mysteries, but they're solidly built, and the pacing is good. I'll keep reading. ( )

Vijf vrouwen gaan als teambuildingsactiviteit een tocht maken doorheen de wildernis van het Girlanggebergte. Een tocht waarbij je niet van de uitgestippelde paden mag afwijken, want je kan er al héél snel verdwalen. Laat dat nu net hetgene zijn waar deze 5 personeelsleden tegenaan lopen…. Ze vinden na enkele dagen het eindpunt terug, maar slecht 4 van hen halen de eindmeet. Waar is Alice gebleven? Aaron Falk wordt bij de zaak betrokken, want het is Alice die hem hielp om wanpraktijken binnen het bedrijf aan de kaak te stellen en belangrijke documenten openbaar te maken….

Wildernis van Jane Harper kon geen passendere cover hebben! Je ziet het oneindige groen uitgestrekt over de hele omslag en dat benadrukt feitelijk het hele gegeven waar dit boek om draait. De vijf vrouwen die de weg kwijt zijn en enkel en alleen maar omringd zijn door bomen, struiken en ander bladgroen. Mooie cover die meteen mijn aandacht trekt!

Wildernis van Jane Harper is het tweede deel van de Aaron Falk serie. Eerder las ik al De droogte en ik schreef toen over dit eerste deel: “De perfecte dosis spanning, gecombineerd met goed uitgewerkte karakters en een vermenging tussen heden en verleden. Harper heeft een zeer sterk verhaal afgeleverd en een goed begin neergezet van deze reeks”. Toen al keek ik uit naar het vervolg en de korte inhoud deed me al snel beslissen om er niet te lang mee te wachten. Ik kreeg er meteen een beetje een Ruth Ware achtig gevoel bij. Het mysterieuze, de opbouwende spanning, het langzaam ontplooien van de karakters, dit alles zat verweven in dit boek en kon me enorm boeien.

We leren de vrouwen mondjesmaat kennen, hoewel sommige karakters iets meer en beter in beeld komen dan anderen. Aanvankelijk verloopt de trip vlot en relatief vrolijk, maar je merkt toch al snel dat er onderhuidse strubbelingen zijn tussen bepaalde collega’s. Deze opgehoopte frustraties komen uiteindelijk allemaal bovendrijven eenmaal het grondig misloopt en ze van het pad afgedwaald zijn. Ik heb met heel veel plezier en spanning dit boek gelezen, dat enorm goed in mijn straatje past. Alle bovengenoemde elementen zijn diegene die ik zoek in een boek en die me kunnen boeien en vasthouden. “Leeft Alice nog, welke geheimen worden er verborgen, wie heeft een afkeer van wie en waarom, zal Falk de firma kunnen aanklagen,….?”. Kortom een heleboel vragen die ervoor zorgen dat je continu in de ban bent. Het boek verloopt spannend, enkel het einde had (opnieuw zoals bij De Droogte) iets beter uitgewerkt kunnen worden. Het leek me iets te slap te zijn, alsook het fotoschandaal van de dochters van de personeelsleden dat er wat werd bijgesleurd. Stiekem had ik op een iets straffere ontknoping gehoopt, maar niettemin was dit opnieuw een zeer goed boek van Jane Harper. Jammer dat er momenteel geen nieuwe boeken meer zijn in deze reeks, gelukkig wel nog standalones. Die zal ik in de toekomst dus ook zeker eens gaan opnemen. Harper heeft me tot nu toe nog niet teleurgesteld en daarom beloon ik wildernis met een mooi verdiende score van 4 sterren!

Forgiveness. Grudges. Family. The volatile mix of these three primal elements is what drives "Force of Nature." Figuring out how to balance them and find a path through life that works is always difficult but the characters in this book all have difficult burdens to carry that make it even harder. Most of the book is told in two parallel narratives, one being the present ongoing investigation and the other being what happened just a few days ago in the wilds of nature. I often find this to be a difficult read and for the first few chapters I was feeling a bit out of sorts and time, but I quickly acclimated and Ms. Harper does a great job of giving you the characters with enough detail that I quickly was able to follow all of the action. I like the voice and tone of her ongoing main character, Aaron Falk, and she draws him in very realistic tones. He has some issues, many of which we learned about in her first book "The Dry," but he is always trying to do his job and to do the "right" thing, whatever that may be. I greatly enjoyed his relationship with his partner Carmen and I found the development of the mystery and solution to be very satisfying. I will clearly continue to read her books. ( )
