I love Australian writer and ex-journalist Jane Harper’s mysteries and was excited that Exiles, the final installment of her Falk trilogy, would once again feature Detective Aaron Falk. As with Harper's other books, this one unfolds in a uniquely Australian setting: the country's well-known wine country, and the plot centers on a shocking event—in this case the disappearance of a young mother who has left her baby in a pram at a carnival. To solve the mystery, Falk must unearth secrets kept by old friends and admit some of his own. As usual, Harper keeps the reader guessing through unexpected twists and turns that culminate in a believable and satisfying ending. My only regret is that finishing the book meant having to say farewell to the beloved Aaron Falk.
