Stand-alone entry from this excellent Australian author. ( )

Another great book from Jane Harper but set in Tasmania this time. I saw her interviewed when this book was released and she went with her husband and two kids (one just newborn) to research the island. This book is set in a seaside village just after tourist season and I think she has captured that deserted feeling well.

Kieran Elliott now lives in Sydney but he grew up in the small seaside community of Evelyn Bay in Tasmania. He has returned home with his girlfriend Mia and his newborn daughter Audrey to help his parents move. His father has dementia and he is going into a home in Hobart as his mom can't handle him on her own anymore. Mia also grew up in Evelyn Bay but the two didn't connect until they met up in Sydney during university. From the beginning a big storm is mentioned that occurred twelve years ago and it is obvious that it was a traumatic event for a number of people. We learn that Kieran's brother, Finn, and his partner died as they were trying to rescue Kieran who had been trapped by the storm surge. Additionally, Mia's best friend disappeared that night and has never been found although her backpack turned up a few weeks later on some rocks by the shore. Kieran has shouldered the guilt of causing his brother's death and Mia also has her own burden of guilt because she and her friend had an argument just before she disappeared. Kieran overhears the son of the other man killed in the storm talking to a waitress in the town's only pub about the storm and Kieran's part in the death of his father. The next morning that waitress is found dead on the shore and her death is ruled a homicide. The local police sergeant is joined by other officers from Hobart to investigate the death. The chief investigator is going over the events of the storm which brings up all the bad feelings. Is there a connection or is it coincidence?

As the plot unfolds we also see how rumours and gossip can destroy businesses and people. The local community forum fans the flames which reflects what happens online if no-one is moderating content. Social media can be a blessing and a curse. ( )

This atmospheric story takes place in Tasmania, Australia on the coast. Kieran has returned to Evelyn Bay to visit his parent’s, his mother, Verity and his father, Brian, who is suffering from dementia. Twelve years ago, there was a huge storm and Kieran’s older brother, Finn and his friend, Toby were killed in a boating accident for which Kieran feels responsible. At the same time a young, fourteen-year-old girl, Gabby went missing and was never found. All of this is brought up again, when a young waitress, Bronte is found dead on the beach after leaving her job. To compound the mystery, Brian was the last person to see Gabby, twelve years ago, and the night Bronte was killed, Brian is found wandering outside. Or could the person who harmed Bronte be Liam, who gave Bronte a ride home that night? Read the book and find out what really happened and if the two cases are connected. ( )

I selected this book because I enjoyed the movie 'The Dry' (from this author's book of the same name), and because this book is set where I'm from - Tasmania.

I'm not greatly into crime mysteries but can enjoy a good one every now and then. With this book it felt like the author was skinning a very large onion for me - slowly. Very slowly. Some chapters dragged. Some plot points seemed to go nowhere and were just there to keep us 'guessing' on the whodunnit.

The writing is tight and high quality, and the characters are reasonably fleshed-out. Although I found the main character - Kieran - mildly two-dimensional and a bit irritating. There is extensive dialogue, which is well written, and a fairly good sense of place (of the town) from the descriptive passages.

The ending was somewhat unsatisfying - not greatly surprising, a little unbelievable, and not much of a twist really.

What I really didn't like was the use of setting - or rather, lack of. Why use Tasmania if you're not going to give the place, characters, dialogue and story a Tasmanian flavour? The way this is written, she could have changed the setting to almost anywhere in the world and it wouldn't have mattered. Quite lazy, this.

This was also the first time I've listened to a whole audiobook, so this experience was all new. I thought the narrator did a fine job.

The Survivors is okay if you like crime mysteries, but not a strong recommendation from me. ( )

Although I enjoyed this novel, I didn't like it as much as Harper's previous books. It didn't have that uniqueness in its Australian background that made the others so different. I also struggled at times remembering who was who and in fact the murderer reveal had me thinking "who?"
So a bit disappointing. ( )
