Product description


This atmospheric thriller stealthily peels back layers of silence that cover the unspeakable secrets of a tightly knit community

Daily Mail

It's a murder mystery, but also a chronicle of youth, grief and growing up ―
Richard Madeley, Richard and Judy book club

A new book from Harper is always an event. Starting with The Dry (2016), she has built an international reputation on a series of crime novels set in remote communities in Australia, a genre that has become known as rural noir. For her fourth novel, Harper has turned her attention to a different kind of isolation; a small town battered by the elements on the coast of Tasmania...It is the kind of set-up that Harper handles expertlySunday Times Best Crime Novels for January 2021

Lulling and startling in turn,
The Survivors immerses you from the first line in the secret lives of the population of Evelyn Bay. You won't put this novel down until you've uncovered every last skeleton in the closet. I loved itLouise Candlish

Australian author Harper's debut,
The Dry, won a host of awards when it came out in 2017. Her latest, set in a small Tasmanian coastal town, is the same mix of brooding atmosphere and clever plottingGood Housekeeping, This month's 10 books to read right now!

The Australian novelist Jane Harper is known for her excellent outback noir novels, in which the harsh, sun-baked
expanses of the landscape play as much a part as her protagonists.
Her latest, The Survivors, moves the action to the coast of Tasmania, and shows that Harper doesn't need sun and sand to write a compelling, terrifying thriller...Harper goes from strength to strength

Observer, Thrillers of the Month

Jane Harper's superb new novel The Survivors exhibits all the qualities that make her such a compelling writer: a preoccupation with the clumsy, anxious joys and sorrows of adolescence and the awkward, haunted relationships of old friends who have nothing left in common but the past; an ability to unfold with steady, deliberate, unshowy brilliance a slow-burning family drama that reaches a devastating climax; a deft facility for artful character and plot misdirection; above all, a gift for setting, in this case the cliffside, the beach, the treacherous series of caves, the deserted town itself, all in thrall to the beauty and power and menace of the ocean. Sure-footed, technically impeccable plotting and storytelling ensure the mystery holds until the final pages, when Harper's compassionate eye imbues the novel with a satisfying degree of moral nuance ― Irish Times

Without doubt one of the finest crime writers at work today, a new Jane Harper novel is the highlight of my reading year.
