mary's book basket ~ "a killer among us" by lynette eason

"A Killer Among Us" by Lynette Eason is a thriller. The third book in Eason's Women of Justice Series. I love a good mystery and Eason provides quite the puzzle to unravel.


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 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's hunting one of them too.
With nail-biting suspense, clever plot twists, and a hint of sweet romance, A Killer Among Us is the latest thriller from Lynette Eason. It will keep readers up late as they race to discover the killer--and whether Kit and Noah will live to tell about it.

Eason does a fabulous keeping the pace in the suspense filled novel. She hits the right beats with emotion giving the reader a break now and again using dialogue and levity between secondary characters to lighten things up before taking the reader on a darker journey. I enjoyed this book and these characters very much. If your looking for a thrilling beach read, don't look any further than "A Killer Among Us".
