The New York Times best-selling author of Cold Blooded and Hot Blooded, Lisa Jackson returns with a bone-chilling new book that begins with a gruesome scene—a woman awakens trapped inside a coffin with a rotting body! Surely, this must be the work of the Graverobber, a sinister Savannah, Georgia serial killer named for his macabre methods of execution. Lisa Jackson’s expert proficiency at crafting truly terrifying psychological thrillers is on full display in this novel.

I enjoyed the book but the reader made it unpleasant.
No! I will skip anything that she is listed as the reader.
The reader sounded like she was eating the whole time she was reading. I could hear her breathing and swallowing throughout. She didn't use different "voices" for the different characters.
I listen to at least 3 books a month. This story is the best one I've heard in a long time. Sandra Brown, Nora Roberts, and Heather Grahm are a few of my favorite authors. I have enjoyed Lisa Jackson's books too, but The Morning After is the best book I've heard or read in a long time. The story was riveting, it was well paced and so creepy! I loved that it scared me without being gory. I had no idea who the bad guy was! The narrater was good in that the voices were well done and did not distract from the story at all. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with a light romance.
This story wasn't even half as good as some of Lisa Jackson's other work. On top of that the narrator is great... except for the "mouth sounds". I'm sure other plenty of listeners can ignore them but it's a pet peeve of mine and it was hard to ignore. Sounded like she had a uncomfortably dry mouth and was in serious need of a drink throughout.
To be fair, I only made it about 3/4 of the way through this book. I couldn't take it anymore.
Aside from some semi graphic sexual content and language, the rest is like something written for a bad TV network series.
The killer in the book gets the moniker "The Grave Robber" from the struggling but sassy newspaper reporter (and main character)...because...guess what he does...He robs graves.
