Lisa Jackson  is an amazing fiction mystery writer. Her books are full if drama and  suspense and always have a love story twist. If you love murder mysteries then you will love this book. It was a New York Bestseller.

This book takes place in the Savannah area where Nikki (the main character) writes for a paper and discovers she is a target of a serial killer whom is burying people alive. She ends up working with a rugged cop named Pierce. They pretend to dislike each other but deep down they are in love. The killer captures Nikki and almost succeeds in killing her until Pierce saves the day.

This book is one of those hard to put down books. Every chapter ends with you wanting to know more. Lisa Jackson does a great job of taking you through the minds of killers. I would highly recommend this book.

Nice first review! I loves me some murder mysteries :D By the way, if you look to the right, I changed the topic name to "The Morning After" since that it is what you are reviewing. Thanks for sharing!

About this book

Wiki

Slowly waking from a drugged sleep, a woman realizes she's not in her own bed but in a closed coffin, lying on top of a cold, reeking dead body. Thuds resonate on the lidâ€"dirt and stones being shoveled on topâ€"bringing the sure knowledge she's being buried alive. From this bone-chilling, if melodramatic, opening image, Jackson skillfully crafts a horrific thriller about an elusive serial killer dubbed The Grave Robber. Seeing the high-profile murders as her ticket out of small-town Savannah, ambitious reporter Nikki Gillette latches onto the case and onto lead investigator Pierce Reed. Tough-guy police detective Pierce initially sees Nikki's dogged investigations as a mere irritantâ€"until evidence turns up indicating that the killer may see Nikki as his prey. Meanwhile, tension and unease mount for Nikki as secret ties among the attractive Pierce, whom she may be falling for, the killer and the victims start coming to light. As in Jackson's previous offering, The Night Before, this psychological thriller has a beautifully conceived plot full of unexpected twists and provocative misleads, as well as sophisticated character development. Not even the sadistic murderer is one-dimensionally evil, and the protagonists display delicious depths.
