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.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
