A Killer Among Us by Lynette Eason (Review)



  • Paperback: 345 pages

  • Publisher: Revell (May 1, 2011)

  • ISBN-13: 978-0800733711

  • From the Back Cover:

    What happens when the hunter . . . becomes the hunted?
    Kit Kenyon is a first-rate hostage negotiator. Noah Lambert is a good detective with excellent instincts. These new partners have hardly had time to get used to each other when they are thrown into a grisly murder case. As evidence mounts up and more victims are found, Kit and Noah realize they are on the hunt for a serial killer. The problem is, he may be hunting one of them too.

    With nail-biting suspense, clever plot twists, and a hint of romance, A Killer Among Us is the latest thriller from Lynette Eason.
    My Review:
     
    This is book three in the Women of Justice series but can stand alone. I have read the whole series and enjoyed it. It was nice to see what happened to previous characters a little in this book.  Christian romantic suspense is my favorite genre. I love Kit and Noah. They make a great couple. Kit was the best character so far to me from the whole series. The characters and plot were interesting. I guessed who the killer was about half way through the book but it did not take anything away for me. Even with the subject matter I enjoyed reading the book and it held my attention from the start. I love how Kit's background and personal struggles and relationships with the other characters were handled. The ending was not a surprise but still fulfilling as far as wrapping up the plot. I highly recommend the whole series and I hope there is another book in it. This is one of my new favorite authors. :)
