There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The story is well written and the endless small town rivalries and conflicts are well drawn.
The book certainly keeps the readers attention right to the end, although I found the eventual outcome somewhat unlikely and not very satisfactory from the readers point of view
I enjoyed the author’s previous novels but this one is a disappointment.

This thriller follows Keiran Elliot, who returns to his hometown with his wife and new baby to visit his parents, as his mother gets set to pack up her home as his father is taken into full time care for his dementia. The small town has not forgotten Keiran's part in the death of his brother and brother's best friend in a great storm when he was a teenager. Set around a notoriously dangerous cave system, called The Survivors, the story centres around a young waitress found dead on the beach. Suspicion falls on practically everyone within the community and secrets thoughts to have been buried in the storm of years ago resurface.
Harper is genius as portraying relationships and their complexity. A satisfying ending, which leaves you thinking.
The characters are well-rounded and believable and the descriptions brought the caves and beaches in Tasmania to life. I really felt as if I was there in every scene.
As expected with a Jane Harper novel, there were many twists and turns in the plot with a few red herrings thrown in. I had no idea who dunnit until the final reveal. With other books I have usually worked out the plot well before the end but with this one, I really couldn’t guess.
A great page-turner, beautifully written with a great plot. I feel sad to have finished it.
