The Third Grave by Lisa Jackson is a highly recommended Southern Gothic crime novel.

Instead of finding the reputed fortune when searching the cellar of the deteriorating Beaumont mansion after a hurricane hits the Savannah area, a petty criminal discovers the skeletal remains of two girls. Detective Pierce Reed is called out to the scene and his wife crime writer Nikki Gillette soon clandestinely follows. The two girls are the older two Duval sisters, Holly, 12, and Poppy, 10, who have been missing for twenty years. The search is now on for the perpetrator and the third and youngest sister, Rose, 5, who is still missing. The girls went to the movies with their older brother, Owen. Rather than staying with them, Owen left to spend time with his girl friend and became the main suspect but nothing was ever proven. Now it is time to take another look at the previous investigation and Owen. As Reed is officially investigating the cold case, Nikki ignores his order for her to stay away, sure that this case will result in a successful true crime book for her, and her poor decisions result in putting herself and others at great risks.

As the fourth book set in Savannah featuring Pierce Reed and Nikki Gillette, you can read The Third Grave as a standalone novel. There is enough backstory to easily keep up with the main characters as your compelling interest will be in the mystery and solving the case. The plot does have a slow pace at the beginning but it quickly picks up as more information is uncovered. Chapters alternate from the point-of-view of different characters, including the killer, who is determined to not be identified. The key to enjoying this novel is to focus on the plot, take note of the discoveries and new information uncovered, and catch the clues pointing to the identity of the killer. There will be a few surprises along the way.

I enjoyed the novel. The cold case and the investigation are interesting, however Nikki, as the novel unfolds, increasingly becomes an unlikable character. She takes unnecessary risks. She is self-centered. Her actions are impetuous and head strong. There are consequences to her actions, but she seemingly shrugs them off. She is not disagreeable all the time, but her determination isn't tempered by a thoughtful consideration of the consequences, which feels rather immature. I had to set my opinion about her aside and simply focused on the plot, which is interesting and will hold your attention.

The Third Grave by Lisa Jackson
Pierce Reed/Nikki Gilbert Novel #4

I have read and loved Lisa Jackson’s books and have eagerly looked forward to reading what she writes but for some reason I could not connect with this story. I am not sure if it is because I don’t remember or haven’t read the previous three books in the series or if it is just this series that is not right for me. I just looked back over the past few years of her work that I have read and found that the more recent books have not resonated at all but that rereading her older books still do. I hope that her future books will be more my style.

My thoughts:
* Nikki: reporter, wife, pregnant, more interested in “the story” than in anything else. She takes risks that are crazy and more in line with someone half her age. I did not connect with her or even much like her.
* Pierce: detective and husband, committed to his job, wishes Nikki wouldn’t infringe on his cases but understands her need go get “the story”. (I didn’t get it but he sort of seems to).
* It took a LONG time to find out who the killer was and the motivation for the killings and then the additional killings seemed like…overkill, and it didn’t mesh and solidify for me for some reason.
* This story was not Jackson’s best work, in my opinion, but I am hopeful that her next book will be perfect and will give it a try.

Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the ARC – This is my honest review.

A treasure hunter finds the remains of two dead girls in the basement of an old mansion instead of the treasure he was looking for. Who are these girls and how long have they been there? That is the question that both the police and one investigative reporter want to know. Problem is that Nikki Gillette, the reporter is married to the prime investigator Pierce Reed. She seems to get herself in more trouble and more danger than need be. But where would the story be, if Nikki didn’t get herself immersed in the search for the answers?

That said, Nikki is more annoying than likable. Although, she does push the story along, I’d wish she stay in the hospital so Pierce can do his work. There is a mysterious narrator that give us clues and a few twists and red herrings, which make the story interesting. I just wish Nikki was more helpful to her husband and the police instead of trying to further her own interests. ( )
