"A Killer Among Us" Book Review

Local Detectives Close In On Serial Killer!

Just as Noah open his mouth to respond, the passenger window beside Kit ruptured, glass flew, and Noah yelled. Kit gasped, “Noah!” Kit felt something hit her arm then pain radiated upward toward her neck. “The shooter is on the roof, I’m going for that parking garage,” Noah gritted. “Noah? I think I’m gonna pass out.” Kit’s eyes shut and this time she couldn’t shove the blackness away.

A Killer Among Us (ISBN: 978-08007-3371-1, $14.99, May 2011) is the latest thriller in the Women of Justice series from author Lynette Eason. In the conclusion of this series, A Killer Among Us is full of the heart-stopping suspense and gritty realism that fans of television shows like NCIS or CSI enjoy. Eason brings to life the lives of a negotiator and a detective hunting down a killer in the streets of Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Kit Kenyon is a first-rate hostage negotiator. Noah Lambert is a good detective with excellent instincts. The new partners have hardly had time to get used to each other when they are thrown into this grisly murder case. As evidence mounts and more victims are found, Kit and Noah realize they are on the hunt for a serial killer. The problem is he's hunting one of them...but which one?

The pace never slows in A Killer Among Us as the story offers up clever plot twists, and hint of romance. Readers will be on the edge of their seats as this page-turning suspense keeps readers up late trying to discover who the killer is--and whether Kit and Noah will live to tell about it.


Lynette Eason's Women of Justice series gets wrapped up with "A Killer Among Us" and what a wrap up it is! Each of these books has been more gripping and suspenseful than the last and I have loved all three of them. The bright yellow covers are great because when they show up in the mail I know right away that I am in for a treat and this one did not disappoint!

We get introduced to Kit in the 2nd book when she finds her sisters because she was given up for adoption at birth. She is adjusting to life with lots of family when she gets drawn into the web of a serial killer. She and her new partner, Noah, must try and stop him before anyone else dies but the bodies seem to be dropping like flies. What is the connection? Why is he leaving such weird clues? Can Kit save those that matter to her most?

Awesome, awesome, awesome! This is a series that I really didn't want to see end - I hope that Lynette starts a new suspense series soon because she has a gift for it!
