They survived what no woman should ever have to endure. Now these three women have the means, the opportunity, and the perfect motive. Are they trying to get away with murder–or is someone trying to make sure that this time they don’t get away at all? The Survivors Club… that’s what Jillian Hayes, Carol Rosen, and Meg Pesaturo call it. They won’t consider themselves victims. They are survivors. They faced the blazing headlines and helped lead the investigation that caught the man who changed their lives forever.
And now that Eddie Como, the College Hill rapist, has been murdered, shot down outside a packed courthouse moments before his trial was about to begin, all three women are openly ecstatic that he’s dead. They are also the prime suspects in his murder. Detective Sergeant Roan Griffin knows all too well what can drive even the best people to cross the line. But he has never seen a case quite like this one. But questions taunt Griffin: Who ordered the deaths of Eddie Como and his killer? Could three ordinary women have been driven to do the unthinkable? Had someone in the Survivors Club become a killer?

I love Lisa Gardner’s novels and I was thrilled to find a stand alone novel by her! If you have never heard of her, I would recommend her Quincy and Rainie series, starting with The Perfect Husband. So, so amazing!
The Survivors Club was a brilliant stand alone that has everything that I want from a mystery – likeable characters, lots of action and a surprising mystery.
The novel started off in so many different direction – a sniper on a rooftop, a police detective returning back to work after a leave of absence, and a woman recollecting about the worst night of her life. I loved how all of the storylines connected and I had no idea what was going to happen.
5 calculators out of a potential 5! One of my favourite mysteries this year!
