A Killer Among Us by Lynette Eason is a fast-paced romantic crime thriller with lots of twists and turns to the story. Kit Kenyon knows her business as a top-notch hostage negotiator. Almost immediately after starting a new job, she and her new partner Noah Lambert find themselves involved in a terrifying serial murder case. The case progresses and the danger grows personal, as it appears that the killer may be after either Kit or Noah.
As Kit and Noah get to know each other better, his openly expressed faith and compassion have a dramatic impact on Kit. She finds herself having to make decisions about how to handle feelings of betrayal and hurt in her personal life, and the partnership begins to move in unexpected directions.
I was a little hesitant to opt in on reviewing this book when I realized it was the third in a series, but I’m glad I chose to do so. There was enough background information given to make this enjoyable as a stand-alone, but now I’m anxious to go back and read the first two installments in the Women of Justice series.
