Blog Tour: A Killer Among Us (Review)

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.


What I Thought
I like Lynette Eason's style of writing. She crafts a strong suspense novel, with touches of faith and romance. This is the third book and final book in the Women of Justice series.

Kit Kenyon's pursuit of the serial killer is intense and will capture your interest from beginning to end..

I wish the book didn't seem like it was "forced" a bit to fit into the existing storyline of the first two books. During the second book, Kit's existence is revealed as the missing twin sister of Jamie - a twist in Don't Look Back.

However, maybe some of the feelings of angst and confusion I felt as I read this book was deliberately written into the storyline by Eason. My theory - Eason wanted her reader to feel the same "disconnection" and "frustration" Kit must have felt as she balanced between her newly discovered biological family and her adopted mother.

On a scale of one to five, I give this book a solid three and a half to four. It's a great read, a good finish to the three-book series, and could be read as a stand-alone book - but I always recommend reading them in order.
