Lisa Gardner Ý The Survivors Club DOC

With the leader of the Survivors Club Jillian Hayes is beautiful successful cool as ice and she harbors a pain that mirrors Griffin's own Did the horror of what happened to her push her over the thin and desperate line that separates survival and revenge? And if it did could he blame her or anyone in the Survivors Club? Then another woman is brutally attackedSuddenly with the city on the ragged edge of panic gripped in a media and political firestorm of controversy cover up and conspiracy the hunt is on for a ruthless and cunning killer For Griffin this may well be the case that shatters his career For Jillian the harrowing nightmare is beginning all over again Someone is out there Someone who wants to finish what was started Someone who wants to make sure that no one survives the Survivors Club 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
