Ok story, not real suspenseful, but held my attention. The romance is very weak almost non-existent. ( )
  kerbytejas | Mar 25, 2016 |
In Jackson’s mystery thriller, journalist Nikki Gillette is hot on the trail of a big story—a serial killer is on the loose. She’s already given him a nickname—The Grave Robber—for his preference for burying people alive. It’s Pierce Reed’s case but Nikki dogs the cop’s steps at every pace determined to write the story that will be her ticket out of Savannah once and for all. As bodies begin piling up, Nikki’s nerves begin to unravel as she realizes there’s something familiar that she can’t quite put her finger on. As a serial killer pulls her into his twisted game, she realizes she’s fast approaching the truth and with it the realization that death follows closely.

Rapid-fire action accompanied by chills! ( )

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. ( )

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. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0821772953, Mass Market Paperback)

A woman is frantic as she awakens in a dark, closed space. From above her comes the muffled sound of cruel laughter, followed by the hard splatter of dirt. Pure terror takes over as she realizes she's being buried alive, and her last breath is a scream that no one but a sadistic killer will hear. To journalist Nikki Gillette, this disturbing story is a ticket out of small - town Savannah and on to the big time. She's already given the killer a nickname - The Grave Robber - and she's spending every minute dogging tough cop Pierce Reed's investigation, trailing him through Savannah's deep thickets and crumbling cemeteries...even though she's starting to wonder about the secrets he's keeping. Another body is found...and another. Each gruesome discovery unnerves Nikki a little more...there's something familiar about it, something she should know. Now, as a serial killer pulls her ever deeper into his sick game, she has no idea how close she's getting to the truth - or how deadly it will be.
