A Killer Among Us



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.

My Review:

Eason is the queen of masterful suspense and this book doesn't disappoint. The case is grim -- gruesome even -- but she matches the grittiness with a touches of humour and romance and has created a breath-taking drama that will keep you on the edge of your seat and turning pages so fast your head will spin! So many clues, so many red herrings, so much fun trying to figure this one out. I love the way Eason makes me feel like I'm right there -- a part of the task force trying to solve the crime.

A Killer Among Us isn't just another wickedly good suspense - it goes much deeper than that because Eason takes the time to flesh out her characters. They compliment the suspense -- draw it even tauter, in fact.

Noah is an engaging hero -- a man who isn't afraid to share his faith with troubled suspects. It's kind of funny and very endearing and adds a light touch to a heavy subject. And Kit is so intense, so driven to prove herself  that she's forgotten to keep God in the equation. They are opposites that definitely attract and their romance is a steady undercurrent that flows through the suspense. Both build to a dramatic conclusion that left me blue from holding my breath! If you like suspense, you will love A Killer Among Us.
