Format: Paperback
At first I thought that the book was going to be too graphically violent in its descriptions of sadistic rapes. Things toned down a bit after the initial chapter, though the detection of a serial rapist is the central theme. Not a book to be read at night if you're a woman sleeping alone! Three rape victims form a club, the Survivors Club of the title, and we follow them as the accused comes to trial, but is assassinated as he enters the Court. The bulk of the book is a fascinating and compelling piece of detective work following the trail of the perpetrator or instigator of the assassination. It takes a few chapters to get going but after that it gathers pace as clues and false leads come thick and fast. The main characters are well drawn and the final resolution of the crimes is not only surprising, but also clever and convincing: the latter is not always the case with detective novels where I'm often left with the feeling that the ends have been tied up in an perfunctory and unsatisfactory manner.

This is the second Gardner book I have read and although I am impressed overall, this was one story that didn't grip me. The mystery was, in my opinion, drawn out and lacked momentum. Not her best.

Format: Paperback
You cannot see around the corners in this book however much you try! Unpredictable from the first, the story opens with action, and the ride just gets rougher from there. The survivors of the title are drawn into a complex and emotional case that has a direct link to what has happened to them, leaving all concerned to question 'who?' and 'how?'. With twists and turns and tugs on your emotions, this is one fast paced book that still takes the time to explore each character to a satisfactory depth.

I love all Lisa Gardner's novels and she never fails to produce the goods. This book was as good as I anticipated and I couldn't put it down so it only took me a few days to finish. Plenty more like that please.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Clive on 7 May 2009
Format: Paperback
Good early novel from Gardner, albeit a little predictable after the mid-way point. An alleged rapist's sperm is continuing to be found in subsequent rapes, after his murder. This leave's the Survivor's club to contemplate the prospect that they had chased the wrong suspect and that their rapist is still at large. The investigation is led by Detective Griffin who has just returned to duty after a long break from catching the Candyman; a pedophile and murderer. The three Survivors' from different backgrounds have strong characters and blend well with Det. Griffin to make a good read. The story in many areas had undertones of `Silence of the Lambs' which is a classic. Overall this is recommended.

This was my first Gardner book. This story was good and I really enjoyed reading about The survivors club and how they were all coping after the rapes.

However the story occasionally lost momentum and I lost interest. It took me over a week to read (I normally read a book within 4 days) as I was losing interest. Although in parts Gardner really keeps you on the edge of your seat.

I will try another of Gardners books and I can only hope that it's more of her writing and keeping the pages turing rather than me loosing interest.

By Gemma TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 19 April 2010
Format: Paperback
The Survivors Club only has 3 members, Jillian Hayes, Carol Rosen and Meg Pesaturo. They don't like to call themselves victims, they prefer survivors. Meg was the first survivor of the college hill rapist, followed by Carol Rosen. Jillian's sister wasn't so lucky, but she herself survived an attack. They helped lead the investigation to catch the man behind this, but now they are the prime suspects for his murder. Did these 3 seemingly ordinary women get driven to seek revenge? Or is this just the start of something much, much deeper?

This book was a wonderful surprise for me. I liked how it switched between characters and we could see it from the women's point of view too, as well as the main character, Detective Griffin. The book does get a bit too graphic in places, but this makes it seem even more terrifying and it had me hooked. The case and suspects completely change from the start, and as more clues come to the surface, the whole case slowly takes on a more sinister feel. Near the end of the book it's a race against time, making the book extremely hard to put down, and it's a thrilling and fast pace finish to the end of a brilliant read.

Gardner does like to throw you off the scent completely, and surprises the reader by going in a different direction. This is the first, but certainly not the last book I will read by Lisa Gardner.

Format: Hardcover
An excellent read which was well written. A different emphasis is adopted throughout the chapters, making the actual story telling,slightly more interesting. The story is complex and holds your interest through the entire book.It also makes one think about the vulnurability of humans, and how we are all affected differently by certain issues in life.
I found myself suspecting one or two people as the plot unfolds but not the true suspect,the book had me beaten!
