A killer among us by Lynette Eason Book Review

Killer Among Us, A: A Novel (Women of Justice)
Killer Among Us, A: A Novel (Women of Justice)

From the Publisher:
A Killer Among Us (ISBN: 978-08007-3371-1, $14.99, May 2011) is the latest thriller in the Women of Justice series from author Lynette Eason.
In the conclusion of this series, A Killer Among Us is full of the heart-stopping suspense and gritty realism that fans of television shows like NCIS or CSI enjoy. Eason brings to life the lives of a negotiator and a detective hunting down a killer in the streets of Spartanburg, South Carolina.
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 this grisly murder case. As evidence mounts 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...but which one?
The pace never slows in A Killer Among Us as the story offers up clever plot twists, and hint of romance. Readers will be on the edge of their seats as this page-turning suspense keeps readers up late trying to discover who the killer is--and whether Kit and Noah will live to tell about it.
My Review:

I was a little excited about getting this book!  Lynette Eason's previous books have been nothing short of thrilling.  I could not read them at night.  You would think I would have learned my lesson.  Not a chance!
As soon as you start the book - you are in action!  Again, I warn you - this is probably not wise to read late at night.  I didn't want sleep - I wanted to finish the book.
 This is very graphic novel that is not meant for young or immature eyes.  Even now as I'm writing this - some of the horror parts of the book could have been left out and still maintained a clear story.  This book is not for the faint of heart, that is for sure!
Overall, I would give this book 4 stars.  It is a standalone book - even though it was the last of a series.
Blessings to you!  You are loved!
