The Survivors Club | [J. Carson Black]

The Survivors Club

Detective Tess McCrae investigates a grisly crime scene in the ghost town of Credo, Arizona. The evidence suggests a cartel drug hit. But Tess, with a nearly faultless photographic memory, sees what others might miss: This is no drug killing. Someone went to gruesome lengths to cover their tracks. The killer’s trail leads from Tucson to California - from anti-government squatters to the heights of wealthy society. As Tess follows the trail of gore and betrayal, perfect and indelible in her memory, she uncovers far more than one man’s murder and solves much more than one isolated crime.

What the Critics Say

"An utterly engrossing thriller. The Survivors Club grips us from the very start and simply doesn’t let go. The novel seamlessly achieves that rarity in crime fiction: making our palms sweat while bringing the characters and their stories straight into our hearts. Bravo!" (Jeffery Deaver, New York Times best-selling author)

    "Survivor's club barely surviving"

    This book was "OK". I can't say much more than that. The plot and characters were a bit hard to follow which is not good for an audible book.

    "What happeneed?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This was my first J Carson Black novel. The story was good but ended like there was a missed deadline. All of a sudden with three short chapters it was over. Disappointed..


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. Carson Black again?

    Not worth th money.


    Have you listened to any of Joyce Bean’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Absolutely not.

    "Liked it; but..."

    This turned out to be a good mystery, well written and well plotted, didn't identify the killer or killers too quickly. It was also not what I thought I was getting. there are only limited references to the perfect memory of deputy Tess McCrae. I suppose that's better than the author centering the book on her memory; still a few more memory references would be a nice touch in the next work in the series. It's still worth the credit; a solid 3.8 rating.

    "Good plot twists, entertaining !"
    Where does The Survivors Club rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the middle of the pack.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Survivors Club?

    The ending when all was revealed.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Man voices perhaps...she was ok tho overall.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Good book read, but movie...not so sure.

    Story
    "Lacking"

    Found the writing choppy and disconnected, in need of a strong editor. Never really identified with the characters and while the book centers around the female detective’s memory, in the end, that does not seem to play a significant role in the outcome. Narration was ok. Ending kind of just fizzles out. Not worth a credit.
