Time for another great book from Lynette Eason! I do love watching writers become more and more skilled. I hope that one day people will be able to say that about my books as well! Meanwhile I really was pleased with A Killer Among Us.
Kit Kenyon is one amazing woman. She is surrounded by amazing women as well! She is wrestling with the truth of her adoption, but at the same time she has a twin sister, and another sister who are all involved in police work or have husbands in the "field" in one way or another. She has a darling nephew. And at work, well she has a new partner, Noah Lambert.
Kit has just pulled through a horrible hostage situation, where she is the one doing all the negotiation, when a very strange murder calls for Kit and Noah to work on it quite closely. This serial killer is killing law students, or so it seems. In the first murder the killer not only takes an item, but has a particular way of making a statement out of the victims. The killer is presumed male, it is obvious that the victims knew him, and were totally unable to defend themselves.
Past the reader just getting to know Noah and Kit and the romance budding between them, Lynette Eason also has us "inside" the mind and thoughts of this serial killer. What makes him tick, and why he is doing what he is doing is revealed more and more as A Killer Among Us progresses. With Kit and Noah now part of his targets, it is a race to find out who the killer is, and what it will take to stop him. Very few loose ends were not tied up. God wasn't absent, nor was wonderful food, fast paced action, drama, suspense, and a really good plot.
This is one you will enjoy!
