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
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
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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Inside Flap
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...

Apart from being a riveting story set in a beautiful place, the thing I particularly admired was the way Harper adds nuance to her characters, giving them a subtlety of psychology that you often don’t get in a murder mystery. There’s a particularly real feel to this book, in that the ultimate cause of the deaths wasn’t that someone was malign - it’s more a case of small town psychology with its attendant shame, fear and guilt operating powerfully on an otherwise very decent person. As such, it has notes of ancient tragedy. As in many recent books, the bad behaviour of anonymous people online is a feature. Too many ids on display.
The story is well written and the endless small town rivalries and conflicts are well drawn.
The book certainly keeps the readers attention right to the end, although I found the eventual outcome somewhat unlikely and not very satisfactory from the readers point of view
It is not of the same caliber as The Dry.
This novel is a really interesting and multifaceted view of loss and guilt, but is never maudlin. The characters are variously mired in the past, and really reflect how people respond differently to a shared experience.
This is a mystery of course, and a very clever one at that. The denouement is a balance between hope and despair - much like life itself.
Shame because the story line may have worked well. I think I’m within a minority with this opinion as most I’ve read were pretty positive
I’d rate this book 4/10... oooh brutal
The 5 stars are for price and delivery time it was amazing. Well done. Cheers

The characters are well-rounded and believable and the descriptions brought the caves and beaches in Tasmania to life. I really felt as if I was there in every scene.
As expected with a Jane Harper novel, there were many twists and turns in the plot with a few red herrings thrown in. I had no idea who dunnit until the final reveal. With other books I have usually worked out the plot well before the end but with this one, I really couldn’t guess.
A great page-turner, beautifully written with a great plot. I feel sad to have finished it.
