The Survivors

The Survivors

With The Survivors, Jane Harper proves she’s unquestionably the real deal’ Val McDermid

Kieran Elliott’s life changed forever on a single day when a reckless mistake led to devastating consequences. The guilt that haunts him still resurfaces during a visit with his young family to the small coastal town he once called home.

Kieran’s parents are struggling in a community which is bound, for better or worse, to the sea that is both a lifeline and a threat. Between them all is his absent brother Finn.

When a body is discovered on the beach, long-held secrets threaten to emerge in the murder investigation that follows. A sunken wreck, a missing girl, and questions that have never washed away…

Reviews

Once again, as in all her crime novels beginning with The Dry, Australian crime writer Jane Harper creates an impressive landscape that serves to illustrate how the experience of place inevitably shapes the lives of those who live there . . . The Survivors is a subtle, quiet book about guilt, grief and growing up. You may find it hard to leave it behind
Sydney Morning Herald
With consummate skill, Harper steadily builds the suspense to an unexpected climax, while also taking a sharp-eyed look at the intricacies of small communities and the enduring toll of guilt. Highly recommended
Canberra Weekly
A chilling story with socio-political nuances
Weekend Australian
Harper is particularly good when it comes to the dynamics of a small town in crisis, capturing the way festering resentment can corrode the trust that binds such communities together, along with the differing effects of grief on her various characters' psyches
Weekend West
Like in her previous books, the setting is so strong that it's almost a character in itself. For fans like me, a new Harper book is a treat and this is another cracking read
Good Reading
Without doubt one of the finest crime writers at work today, a new Jane Harper novel is the highlight of my reading year. She has this knack of painting such beautiful scenes, only to thread them with such menace, such sheer atmospheric terror. Phenomenal
