Publisher’s Description:  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.


Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*

Nervous Nellie says…

This book was not on sale, wasn’t given to me, wasn’t in any way associated with a plan.  I saw the title and I liked it and the description.  I bought it on a whim because I needed a story to dive into that had a little mystery to it.  I’m glad I did.  I didn’t know the author, I haven’t read the first two in the series.  Basically, I’ve done nothing but pick up the book and listen to it.

I liked the book.  It was well written and the narrator, Kate Zane, was great.  This is a christian fiction book, with a little bit of romance.  No swearing, no sex and no graphic death scenes.  There were deaths to be investigated and a mystery to solve.  It kept me engaged and even though I thought the mystery was easy to figure out, I enjoyed the story.

The goal of the book was to get the two detectives hooked up.  It was slow, which was reasonable.  The story had an element of thriller to it, but it wasn’t a “edge of my seat” thriller.  Fairly calm, fairly open ended romance.  The logistics of the relationship wasn’t discussed, so I hope that Kit gets to keep her job.  The murderer was uncovered and thankfully, the dog wasn’t harmed.

I give it a 3.5 star rating.
