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.The Survivors Club is a serpentine, stay-up-all-night thriller from New York Times bestselling author and master storyteller J. Carson Black.
