Overview

Coming home dredges up deeply buried secrets in The Survivors, a thrilling mystery by New York Times best-selling author Jane Harper.

Kieran Elliott’s life changed forever on the day 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 community he once called home. 

Kieran’s parents are struggling in a town where fortunes are forged by the sea. Between them all is his absent brother, Finn. 

When a body is discovered on the beach, long-held secrets threaten to emerge. A sunken wreck, a missing girl, and questions that have never washed away….

A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books 

“[Harper is] a master at creating atmospheric settings, and it’s easy to fall under her spell…. A layered and nuanced mystery.” (Kirkus)

“As always, Harper skillfully evokes the landscape as she weaves a complicated, elegant web, full of long-buried secrets ready to come to light.” (New York Times Book Review)

Review

Kiernan returns home hoping to expel his demons. Instead, a body is found on the beach and it brings back all his hidden secrets.

I am definitely in the minority on this one. I had a hard time with this read. I struggled to follow the narrator and to keep up with all the characters. The story was a slow burn and really did not grip me like I expected. That being said…the ending is worth getting there.

I did have trouble with the narrator’s accent. This usually doesn’t bother me. I just slow down the speed and I do pretty well. But for some reason, this was a hindrance for me.

I received this audiobook from the publisher for a honest review.
