What makes a family? That is the underlying question of Lynette Eason’s latest thriller, A Killer Among Us.
Kit Kenyon is a hostage negotiator who has moved to town to get to know her biological sisters. Noah Lambert a good detective, and her new partner. Together the two are thrust into the pursuit of a serial killer who seems to target law students. Then the two of them find themselves squarely in the killer’s sights.
The suspense builds with each new murder. The crimes happen quickly, leaving little time for them to catch their breath. The clues are tight and kept me reading as I guessed the killer’s identity. While I guessed correctly, I still found the book very enjoyable and well worth the read. The romance was well written, adding to the tension without detracting from the suspense threads. and for those who have read the earlier books in the Women of Justice series, you will love the reappearance of Sam and Conner, Jamie and Dakota. This book is one that will pull you deeply into its pages and not let go until you reach the highly satisfying end.
