Publisher's Summary

His Victims. . .

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. . .

Will Take His Secrets. . .

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. . .

To The Grave

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. . .

Natalie Naudus is an outstanding narrator

This was a great story and a real whodunnit. Lisa Jackson your books are now on Audible.

The narrator makes this better!

There’s a sick-minded serial killer in Savannah who is burying his victims alive and he appears to have Detective Pierce Reed in his sights, at least that’s what it looks like. Newspaper reporter Nikki Gillette is doggedly determined to not only get the story but to gain access to Reed and get him to open up to her. Yeah, that’s gonna happen.

The prologue begins with the first victim in that coffin and her death was chronicled in excruciating, painful detail, which set the stage for the story to come. I desperately wanted this guy captured as these murders were highly disturbing. It doesn’t help that being in tight, enclosed spaces is one of my deepest fears. The procedurals were tough to follow as the detectives were hampered by red herrings and leaks to the press, namely Nikki Gillette. When the killer shifts focus to her, things get even dicier, forcing Reed and Nikki to work closely together.

There wasn’t much in the way of romance but there was always a strong attraction between these two that eventually brings them together. One of the things I found problematic was how details of a case that may have been relevant weren’t revealed early enough for readers to participate in developing theories. With the procedurals all over the place, it was impossible. However, the mystery was interesting and at the last minute I opted to listen to the book because of the narrator. Natalie Naudus is one of my favorites and she’s the reason I rounded my rating up as her performance was outstanding and she elevated the story. I’m not sure I’ll continue the series (it intersected with her New Orleans series, which my group is reading) but if I do, I’m definitely going the audiobook route. She’s that good. 3.5 stars

Spooky

Loved it and couldn't put it down! Narrator was great, too. Thought I knew who the killer was but I was way off. One of the best parts was when Reid softened up on Nicki and spent the night guarding her.

Loved this book.

It was a great storyline. I didn't guess the murder until the last quarter of the book.
