From the Back Cover
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.
With nail-biting suspense, clever plot twists, and a hint of romance, A Killer Among Us is the latest thriller from Lynette Eason.

I am thrilled I found Lynette Eason, though. A Killer Among Us was just as grippingly nail-biting as the first two books. I did figure out the villains of book 2 and this book early on. It took longer with book 1. Ms. Eason is too good a writer not to have allowed her audience to hone in on the "bad guys." Even though I thought I figured out who the killers were, it was interesting to witness how they acted and reacted throughout the books.The romance was a bit too fast in this book. I really liked the male main character, Noah. I was back and forth about Kit. She irritated me a lot. Out of all three books, my favorite character was Jamie. Off to download Ms. Eason's ebook Gone In A flash. A short book centering on Sam, Connor, Andy, and Jenna on a cruise! Enjoy!
I feel like I hit the jackpot when I discovered Lynette Eason and this fantastic series. Although I am sad that it has ended, I love that it went out with a bang!
As with the first two novels, I was completely hooked from page 1. Lynette jumps right in on the action, opening in the middle of a hostage situation, and the action does not stop until you get to the last page. In book 2, I knew who the killer was right away. In this one, I had my suspicions about a few people. The actual killer was on my "suspect list", but not as high as others, so I was still surprised.
I absolutely love the characters in this series. I love that, even from book 1, you feel for them and feel so involved in their lives. By book 3, they're like friends. I felt for them as they went through all their ordeals.
I didn't think I would like Noah and Kit as much as Jamie and Dakota, but I did! I love the strength of the women in these books. I think I'm unlike most people in the way I almost prefer a woman who "needs" the man, because hardheadedness and pride gets old fast, I think. But I loved the stubborn streak each "woman of justice" had, while still letting their feelings show. It made it so much easier to relate to them, and to admire their determination, without wishing they'd give it up already!
I love the men in this series as well. All three are great, Godly, manly men. I love a man with a badge, a gun and a Bible. *sigh* Noah was wonderful. I loved the way he reached out to every person he met. I liked that he made it clear that he was pointing them to God, not himself. I loved that he encouraged Kit in her walk, without judging or shoving it down her throat. I loved the flirting between the two of them - subtle, but so cute!
Another thing I love about this series is the familiar setting. I live in Columbia, SC, where they are set, and it gives such a neat perspective as I'm reading to be able to visualize exactly where the characters are. Then, in A Killer Among Us, Noah and Kit travel to Raleigh, NC, where I grew up. It was so neat!
As I said before, I hate to see this series end. It's the perfect blend of faith and love with non-stop action and heart-stopping suspense. Absolutely incredible! I would love to see at least two more books - one focusing on Serena, the ME, and one on Alena, Kit's neighbor (and maybe Brian?). *sigh* Oh, well. I throughly enjoyed it while it lasted!
This was Eason's first series, Deadly Reunions being her second series and now having read both I have to say that I believe she just keeps getting better and better. You could read this book alone but I think that you would want to read the other characters' stories in Books 1 & 2, since they are all in Book 3. Either way this one was a good read!
Sometimes I just want something that's an easy read and not too detailed that I keep forgetting who is who, I don't need to read detailed instructions on how to build a nuclear bomb etc. It was nice to not have language that isn't really necessary. Basically, I enjoyed the mix of my favorite type of novel and good (but not overdone) Christian values.
Having said all that, I did find that the books are a little predictable but I still didn't catch everything.
