Lumpkin County, North Carolina Sheriff Baldwin calls Savannah cop Pierce Reed to come immediately to a crime scene in a wooded area as his name was found with the deceased. Pierce is shown a coffin containing two bodies and a microphone. Apparently someone Pierce knows Barbara Jean Marx was buried alive with an existing corpse.................................. Savannah Sentinel reporter Nikki Gillette follows Pierce and his partner Sylvie Morrisette as they try to uncover the identity of a serial killer. The culprit seems to be toying with Pierce as the offender appears to intimately know the cop. As Pierce cannot shake off Nikki, he finds himself falling in love with her, a feeling the journalist reciprocates. Neither one knows the connection Nikki has with the psychopath, but Pierce is willing to risk his life to keep his beloved from being the next person buried alive............................... The latest Lisa Jackson¿s Georgia police procedural romance (see THE NIGHT BEFORE) is a solid terse tale that hooks the audience from the eerie opening scene until the climax. The story line never slows down from the moment Barbara Jean knows she has been buried alive with a dead body until the final confrontation between the heroes and the villain. Though the motive for the homicides seems crazy (than again the killer is crazy), fans will appreciate the lead couple and his partner as the stress on each of them from love and from the murders is palpable. Once again Ms Jackson provides a terse romantic suspense with the accent on thriller............. Harriet Klausner

Once again, Lisa Jackson has written an incredible story. When one reads so many suspense books, its hard to come up with something that really feels new. But the descriptions of the horror of being buried alive, and the creepiness of the sick-o who is doing it, is very unique, yet oh so typical of Jackson's stories.

Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite Lisa Jackson has given readers a chilling story to ponder in her suspense novel, The Morning After. There are multiple murders and no one seems able to connect the dots in order to solve the mystery of people being buried alive, on top of rotting corpses. Once you get past the horror of the crime, you begin to sort through the cast of characters to try to out-think the author before the end smacks you in the face.  Detective Pierce Reed has some past problems to overcome and journalist Nikki Gillette needs a topnotch story to get her out of the doldrums of stories which attract few readers. It is not surprising that the two should meet under less than desirable circumstances. Nikki is all over the detective in her attempts to get a lead story and this only aggravates the detective, such that he goes into avoidance mode. But, lo and behold, Reed finally contacts Nikki and the two must find common ground in order to solve the heinous crime of a serial killer on the loose. I found it a bit difficult to like the lead character of Nikki but the author has done a fine job of seeing her traits through consistently. There are many characters and it takes concentration on the part of the reader to put them all in place to follow the story through to completion. The descriptions of the victims' last moments is compelling and the characters are complex and just elusive enough that the reader will keep turning the pages to learn more. Jackson is fast becoming a leading suspense author and The Morning After will certainly facilitate her climb to the top.

Whomever thinks this book is boring or not good, didn't read the same book. It was awesome! The suspense was engaging. Things were repeated because the author was giving clues so the reader could put two and two together. I figured it out midway but kept reading because the "why" is so very important. Shame on those who thought this book was a waste of time and money.

Another serial killer is stalking Savannah, this one kills his victims by drugging them then putting them in a coffin with another already dead body and burying them alive. He so enjoys his work that he places a microphone in the casket and tape records their dying screams. The second book with police detective Pierce Reed and his partner, this book also goes deeper into the history of reporter Nikki Gillette, who sees these murders as her ticket to the big city and a job with a prestigious newspaper, until the murderer strikes too close to home and targets her loved ones and herself. Once again we have a killer with a vendetta, on a mission as it were, calling himself The Survivor and being dubbed by Nikki Gillette, 'the Grave Robber'. This book has many twists and turns. The biggest one being who the murderer is and his reasons for killing. Without spoiling the book, Jackson gives a clue all along with a question the characters keep asking, although I didn't realize this until the end when the murderer was revealed. Jackson is gifted at taking a 'plot' I have read a 'million' times before and giving it a new spin. That is why I keep coming back.

Fast-paced... Someone is burying people alive in coffins already filled wit, h a dead budy. Pierce Reed and journalist, Nikki Gillette, keep receiving taunting pieces of information from the Grave Digger, aptly named by Nikki in one of her articles.

Ok....so I'm on page 68 and I no....it's early in the book but I do absolutely see what other reviews have said...there is way to much repeating .and as if that's not bad enough...it's unimportant repeating how many times is she realy gonna say (nicky) that in the past she could not get an interview with detective Reed....and why ????? I have read many of Ms. Jackson's books there usually great stories !!!!.and I'm realy hoping this one...pulls through but as of pg. 68 the only significant thing that's told is the actual murder I will keep u updated but as of now...don't buy it as of yet !!!!!
