    The rapist left an indelible mark on their lives; now three women must live with the consequences of his violent brutality. But when he's murdered on his way to trial, the police investigation takes a scorching new focus. All three women had a reason to hate him. All three wanted him dead. But which one of them murdered him? Explosively plotted and unnervingly suspenseful, The Survivors Club sizzles from beginning to end.

    Overall

    It took me a while to get through this book. It was so good that I could do nothing else but listen! No driving, no knitting, no nothin'! As soon as I was fininshed, I started it again. The narrator is very talented. Each character gets a very unique voice. Very richly developed plot and characters. I really felt for them...and was on the edge of my seat. Twisting and turning right along with them.

    Mike Daisey is a fierce storyteller, one minute hilarious, the next minute sweet, with a fine-tuned ear for digression. He circles in on his uneasy subject matter, closer and closer, until he exposes the raw heart. The New York Times calls him "the master storyteller" and he has been compared to Garrison Keillor, Spalding Gray, and David Sedaris.

    Janice says: "Excellent"
    "Do not get this book--or see him live"
    Overall

    The reviewers that have compared Daisy to Garrison Keillor, Spalding Gray, and David Sedaris need to be taken out back with a sharp switch until they get their senses back.

    Daisy is so far removed from reality that he actually believes he can read his diary to a crowd of people and make them laugh or touch them in some way. He does not succeed. He is not smart, not witty and not entertaining.

    Get any of the David Sedaris performances to see what real storytelling is like.
