Kieran Elliott’s life changed forever on a single day when a reckless mistake led to devastating consequences. The guilt that still haunts him 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.

Reviews

With The Survivors, Jane Harper proves she's unquestionably the real deal.

Val McDermid

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

Jane Harper’s capacity for evoking natural environments and creating characters and storylines credibly informed by these locations is on display as strongly as ever in her new novel, The Survivors.... Harper’s unsentimental evocations of how individuals deal differently with loss and shame are noteworthy. She is also alert to how small family units suffer.

Weekend Australian

...The Survivors is an atmospheric and engaging mystery with a vividly evoked coastal setting.

Weekend West, Perth

This is an intriguing mystery, but a deeper layer is added by the well-drawn characters and their relationships. In a small town where everyone knows each other, suspicions are easily aroused. We care as much about what happens to the characters as we do about solving the crime. 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

And in Harper’s proven style, the story is not only atmospheric, it delves deep intothe psyche of main character Kieran Elliott and the townsfolk, unearthing dark secrets of the past, hidden guilt and simmering social tensions.

Herald Sun

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.
