From Jane Harper, New York Times bestselling author of The Dry, comes a riveting new audiobook featuring Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk.

Five women go on a hike. Only four return. Force of Nature begs the question: How well do you really know the people you work with?

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?

Review Quotes

“Narrator Stephen Shanahan puts his clear Australian accent to good advantage as he portrays Aaron Falk, the lead investigator in the search for the missing woman. He also creates the backstory for each of the other female participants. His voice doesn’t change much, but his tone and inflection do, and that makes every one of the female characters an individual. Harper may have created this amazing whodunit, but Shanahan makes it sizzle to the very end. Both story and narrator are not to be missed. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”


Force of Nature bristles with wit; it crackles with suspense; it radiates atmosphere. An astonishing book from an astonishing writer.”

A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Harper’s mastery of pace makes Force of Nature one of 2017’s best thrillers.”

Elle (Australia)

“Thick with menace…Force of Nature cuts between past and present, corporate and domestic, and cements its author as one of Australia’s boldest thriller writers.”

Australian Women’s Weekly

“Presents an intriguing crime that might not actually exist and potential suspects with realistically complex and possible motives.”
