Review: A Killer Among Us by Lynette Eason


A Killer Among Us by Lynette Eason
Revell / 2011

About the book:

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 thoughts:

A Killer Among Us, the final book in the Women of Justice series, is the fifth book I've read by Lynette Eason and another great suspense read! I loved the two main characters, Kit and Noah, but I think Jamie and Dakota (from book two, Don't Look Back) are still my favorite couple in the series with these two being a close second. :)

The suspense was really good and some of the things the killer did were just so twisted! Even though I did guess who the killer was early on in A Killer Among Us, there were still quite a few nail-biting scenes.

I have to say, one thing that slightly annoyed me with A Killer Among Us was when Kit would do foolish things (like going somewhere alone when she knew someone was after her). Those types of things always seem to frustrate me.

The romance was really sweet and I loved how the main characters from books 1 & 2 were in A Killer Among Us.

Overall, I loved A Killer Among Us and recommend it if you enjoy romantic suspense novels with some creepy elements. Great read!
