know all of the characters, it became very interesting and I was hooked Another great story from Lisa Gardner My rating 4 Stars You d think I would ve learned my lesson I decided to give this writer a

little of this novel seemed credible Why would cops go to bars to interview patrons early in the morning, for example At 9 AM the only people in there are unlikely to have many functioning brain cells, I would think Maybe it s different in Rhode Island, I don t know And the whole by how many points does the DNA match question really flummoxed me it matches or it doesn t, right DNA doesn t sort of match or almost match And would someone who wants to be a professional rapist really consult a convicted pedophile So many unanswerable questions Such as, where did a sex offender who works as a janitor get the money to hire a professional hit man How much sperm can one man produce in only two visits to a sperm bank Can one really buy a Chanel suit at Nordstrom Sadly, in a fit of insane optimism I purchases 2 novels by this author and thus am currently forcing myself through the second one The Other Daughter, which is producingunanswerable questions does it truly take only 44 gardenia scented votive candles to spell a 6 letter name And how could said candles burn for nearly 8 hours without anyone noticing the overpowering fragrance Would anyone seriously allow the hired waiter to conduct a crime scene investigation My only excuse is that I am on vacation and I have a 4 week old kitten who creates a lot of interruptions and has been costing me much sleep 4.5

fears And when another young woman was viscously murdered, immediate panic ensued What on earth was happening How had the killer orchestrated the latest attack And would Jillian, Carol and Meg be able to go back to life as it was before before their lives had been changed irrevocably Could they actually remain members of The Survivors Club What a gripping and intense read from Lisa Gardner An oldie but a goodie for me A pace that kept me turning the pages, twists and turns throughout and as I neared the ending, the tension was incredibly powerful A brilliant thriller and one I have no hesitation in recommending highly 3.5 5 starsThe Survivor s Club is a standalone detective mystery thriller.Lisa Gardner is one of my favorite authors I have read all of her books I devour them immediately upon

is one of my favorite authors I have read all of her books I devour them immediately upon release I absolutely love both her D.D Warren and FBI Profiler series I realized that I had never read this standalone And I was in the mood for a good detective mystery book.I think one problem with reading this book now is that this was one of her first books And she has gotten to be a betterexperienced writer.This book dragged a bit in the beginning I think part of it was due to the multiple 3rd person POVs In her recent books she often has 2 3 narrators one or two in first person and one or two in third person That is much easier to follow vs how this book was set up In The Survivor s Club each chapter is someone s name But that person is not necessarily the only narrator in that chapter And there are sometimes multiple narrators in the same chapter And it just switches This made the book unnecessarily confusing.The second half of the book was much stronger for me I got used to how the book switched narrators And the story line was very good.The main characters are Jillian, Carol and Meg All three women were attacked by the College Hill rapist They are survivor s and have formed a club called The Survivor s Club.The main detective in this story is Griffin.The book starts with the trial for the College Hill rapist getting ready to begin However, something happens outside the courthouse.The story was really very strong And I found the last 100 pages completely riveting.Overall, this was an amazing story filled with some incredible twists My only problem with the book was how the chapters and narrators were set up But the book was so good by the end that I could not put it down I call Lisa Gardner the QUEEN OF CREEP All of the novels I read by her including a few D.D Warren books seem to have a well developed sense of creepitude Creepy, sleazy, smarmy and just..I dunno foul Child in peril We got it Screwed up adults because as children they were in peril We got it The Survivors Club fits into this genre nicely I mean the bad guy molested and murdered 10 children and buried them in his basement See what I mean And yet, here I am a lover of her CREEPINES I call

them in his basement See what I mean And yet, here I am a lover of her CREEPINESS Her female characters are often borderline hysterical thinking now of Rainie Conner and sometimes I have a difficult time cheering for them They may drink too much, carry too many weapons, and live lives that lack self control, purpose or even a hint of self discovery I find myself sometimes cursing them as traitors to our sex Grow a pair, dang it..but again I am a lover of the CREEP.So The Survivors Club, a stand alone novel, is true to form with the effed up women, aka child in peril motif I must say though, that compared to her several other books, she pulls her punches here There is the creep but it is a bit restrained Thank god Detective Roan Griffin as hero is wounded, driven, and severely depressed after his wife dies Wouldn t you know his next door neighbor, a super nice guy who helped Roan tend to his dying wife is GASP a KILLER OF CHILDREN Griffin is the detective who finally busts this guy, but the whole sordid case took its toll on Griffin, who has to take an 18 month medical leave meaning nutcase He no sooner comes back to work when he is assigned a nasty case involving a murder of a rape suspect, and a car bomb which may have killed a hitman Roan has to deal with The Survivor s club, for these 3 women were the victims of the rape suspect And they want blood They want justice Most of all they want their lives back Good luck with all that since all three women have why am I not surprised issues But wait, there isOnewoman is raped with the DEAD suspect s DNA on her What the This whole mess involves the Survivors Club, the child molester murderer, city police, state police and the ubiquitious press I dare not saythis book is a page turner if only to escape the creep , and once again, Lisa Gardner makes us cringe, shudder and admire the very creepy throne she sits on Effective but gruesome suspense novel, a Silence of the Lambs meets Law Abiding Citizen Not for the faint of heart In fact, this is the book to read if you are taking a self defense course or thinking of taking one It will definitely spur you on.PLOT Suspect of several vicious rapes, one ending in death, is

tangential family members.I recently read At the Midnight Hour which was written by Lisa Gardner under another name THESE TWO BOOKS ARE NOTHING ALIKE Back to the show, it s a suspenseful book and accelerates eventoward the end, but it is graphic and somewhat stomach turning There was a point towards the end as detectives, bad guys, police, victims are all reaching maximum impact with some mighty poor decisions made by higher ups when all I could think if was a quote from Galaxy Quest,Have you guys EVER seen the show My first time reading this author I ve been reading a lot of great new to me authors lately and I m not even sure at what point of the book I was totally sucked in, but sucked in I was I noticed a lot of reviewers mentioning the slow start, and yeah, it did take a little bit to get interested I found the prologue to be a bit confusing, and once I started the first chapter the prologue went completely out of my head It wasn t until I sat down to write this review that I suddenly remembered My first time reading this author I ve been reading a lot of great new to me authors lately and I m not even sure at what point of the book I was totally sucked in, but sucked in I was I noticed a lot of reviewers mentioning the slow start, and yeah, it did take a little bit to get interested I found the prologue to be a bit confusing, and once I started the first chapter the prologue went completely out of my head It wasn t until I sat down to write this review that I suddenly remembered the prologue and thought oh, that s what it was about The epilogue, on the other hand, was very welcome and left me feeling a little warm and fuzzy, despite the harsh subject matter in the main body of the book I m very character driven if I had to choose between plot and characterization I d go with the latter every time This book has a lot of characters, but they were easy to keep track of I very much liked Detective Griffin I mentioned in the last review I posted that I m partial to emotionally wounded heroes and law enforcement, and I was drawn to Griffin pretty much right off the bat And I loved the interplay between Griffin and Detective Fitzpatrick I know Griffin and Waters were long time friends, but he and Fitz made a great duo, and some of their comments to each other made me smile, and occasionally even laugh a little While there s lots of other dialogue between different characters, there s also a good bit of internal dialogue, which I like, and plenty of action I don t know that I was ever on the edge of my seat, but I was certainly immersed in the story, in all the stories as the narrative focus shifted from character to character By the end of the book I was reading late into the night, unable to even think about sleeping until I finished the last page I have read several books from this author and I have to say that this was disappointing This book was slow to start and at times difficult to follow The concept of the book is clever but was not well executed Please, consider reading her other books, don t let this turn you off because you will be missing out.
