The Survivors

A novel by

Who was Luanne Woodrow?

Only one man at the glamorous ski resort knew the answer.

His name was Hans Aldik. He was a world-famous writer. And he was following this hauntingly beautiful, strangely reticent girl for a single purpose. She was the only surviving member of the Woodrow family.

All the others had been murdered in one of the most notorious crimes of the century. Luanne alone held the key to the Woodrow mystery.

For ten years she has been living at Laurel Groves, a rest home of sorts, her only refuge after the mass murder of six members of her family.

Now, awkward and frightened, she has come outside its protective walls for the first time since the tragedy to vacation in Switzerland.

Suddenly Hans Aldik appears, a handsome, kind man who is initially interested in Luanne only because he is writing a book about the Woodrow murders, a crime for which Luanne - although tried and acquitted - still retains deep-rooted feelings of guilt.

But she was without memory, and clung to sanity by a fragile thread. And it was Hans Aldik's intent to lead her back to London, back to the scene of the horror, back to the truth she so desperately feared...

Together they begin to unravel the girl's horrible past; delving into the secrets of her strange family.

In a chilling and tense atmosphere, the years of Luanne's childhood unfold and as she discovers more and more, her terror grows...

'The Survivors' is a gripping thriller, a tale of family secrets and the calamitous consequences of revealing them.
