Tension runs high in the story as the slow build up leads to a climatic ending. The relationship between Pierce and Nikki is hot and has as many twists and turns as the investigation. The story is well written with just enough confusion to keep you guessing as to who the killer is.

The Morning After is a chilling story of retribution and revenge.
