This book, about the trauma of women subjected to rape, is an odd mixture of murder mystery and soap opera. The feelings of the women, and their survival or recovery, are described in great detail. In addition there is a really intriguing plot of really horrible actions by an extremely clever villain.
Survivors Club is not only a great mystery thriller, but also an in-depth look on how people handle rape. This story explores rape and the effects on families, spouses, and friends. Each of the characters handles the trauma of her attack in a different way and provides a broad spectrum of reactions. The story also explores how people deal with tremendous grief and loss. Survivors Club is a bit graphic at times and contains a lot of foul language, which I do not like. However, in spite of this drawback, the story itself is excellent and the twists and turns are exceptional.
This was my second Lisa Gardner on Audible and I really liked both. The narrator was good and the story really kept moving along. The plot and characters were believable.
The story is about rape, so one word of warning is that the author describes some of the details pretty graphically.
All in all a great audio book tho. I would definitely listen to more of her books.

This is my first book by this author and it was awesome. The writing was crisp and descriptive. I felt part of the story. The narration was very good, again drawing me into the story. Totally recommend this book. I'm ready to start another Lisa Gardner book.
I loved this book. In fact, I love all of this author's books. I thought the plot was unique and it kept me guessing right up to the end. I also enjoyed the narrator, whose voice changed with each character. If you like a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, you'll like this one.
This book was very interesting and suspenseful. It is movie material. The reader did a great job with different voices, and it never was dull. My first book by the author and I am buying another today! Loved her work.
Great book. The reader did the characters very well and enhanced an already great story. Interesting twists and turns to the story and you get drawn in to the story immediately. I will definitely try other books by her.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
no as I own way too many to even get to listen, but this was a good one. Kept you on the edge
I purchased this as the late great Anna Fields is the reader. I have purchased as much as I can that she reads. Lisa Gardner fans will love this one. If you want a new author, this is a good one. There is humor in the dialogue for a mystery, which I like from our hero.
when the reporter woman is foiled. Lots of twists and turns without too much darkness.
Tell us about yourself!
Having been raped, back when a girl went through hell to get the guy prosecuted (1973 - U of MN; Middle Brook Hall, Spring Break), I don't remember buying a $900 Channel suit, or getting amnesia and proceeding to behave like an infant, or drinking Champagne when he was given a whole 18 months. I kept wondering why the author didn't even speak to a woman who'd been raped? I realize all women respond differently, but I think I'm safe to say that she wasn't even near the ball park on this one Just amazing! I couldn't like any of the characters, yet the author apparently assumed the reader would be head over hills in love with them - why? Shallow and obnoxious women and brainless cops....don't bother.
No, I love a good "Who Done It" but expect more from the author: ie.: Research maybe?
Anna Field did an excellent job, but ironically, the better she did, the worse the writing seemed!
First...and last Lisa Gardner book for me...
The ending... and the love story ... started alittle slow but when it picked up, it was non stop action
