The Dry captured my attention from the first few pages and kept me hooked for hours! I seriously could not stop reading because I had to get to the bottom of things. It’s dramatic and surprising with plenty of suspense to satiate mystery lovers!
Aaron Falk has returned to the small town where he lived most of his childhood until he and his father were ran out of town after a young girl died. Falk would have preferred to keep away but comes back for a funeral. Now in his late thirties, Falk and Luke were close twenty years ago and have only briefly kept in touch over the years, but Luke’s father insists Falk attend his son’s funeral.
Luke’s parents question everything regarding the deaths and Falk gets roped in to investigating financial records and the life and death of Luke and his family. Old secrets come back to the surface and Falk begins to realize not everything will stay hidden in a small town.
This novel was very well written and fast paced enough that you don’t get bored but it’s also not too fast to confuse readers. The only reason for the 4 star review is I wish the ending would have been a little more fleshed out with some more detail or an epilogue. Overall I really enjoyed reading it and I am looking forward to the next book starring Aaron Falk!
