First sentence(s):
From above, from a distance, the marks in the dust formed a tight circle.

They are at the stockman’s grave, a landmark so old, no one can remember who is buried there. But today, the scant shadow it casts was the last hope for their middle brother, Cameron. The Bright family’s quiet existence is thrown into grief and anguish. Something had been troubling Cameron. Did he lose hope and walk to his death? Because if he didn’t, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects…

My two-bits:
Men's roles are in focus in this story with a country setting.

I liked the storytelling style. The mystery was revealed with experiences rather than investigation and questioning within a family.
