Kit Kenyon finds herself in a hostage situation. A husband is threatening to kill his wife because she wants to leave him and take the children. Kit thought she had the situation under control, only to have it end badly.

Noah Lambert and Kit are thrust into a string of gruesome murder cases. It seems that this serial killer deals out his own justice. He left the following message on his latest victim that said “Life’s a laugh. How does the death penalty feel? An eye for an eye.” As Noah and Kit...more

Great suspense!!! Thriller even.. Whats really interesting is that even the sickest people wish to have a perfect life. But what hit me more is that it is the children that are abused in their innocence end up all messed up, this in a way justifies their actions-- not that i support whafthey do but i feel somewhat sorry for them. After all it is those chilhood years that define who we will become in life--it is important to have good influence in those years..
I love how Kit delt with it and man...more

Another great book in the Women of Justice series!

Another great book in the Women of Justice series!

I've read the 1st two books in this series in the past week & was anxious to read this one to get the continuation of the series. I enjoy series books best & this series did not disappoint me. Although this book was the same as in the other 2 & I was able to figure out who the bad guy was earlier on, there were more characters in book #3 to shift blame to keep the reader guessing. I ha...more

This was my favorite book from this series! It was exciting, sweet, full of action…all around awesome. And not quite as much gory detail (to be blunt) as some of the books had. My favorite of the three…I highly recommend it!

A Killer Among Us, is the shining star of the Women of Justice series! Loved this one! From the characters and their relationships, to the suspense and mystery, this novel delivered a walloping good read! I felt like Eason really found her writing groove and potential with this one.

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 alo...more

It doesn't take a detective to figure out that Lynette Eason is a great suspense novelist. With grisly crime scenes, psychotic killers, great cops, and a touch of romance, Eason has come up with a near perfect spine-tingling tale that will appeal to both men and women. What can I say?this series just gets better with each book.

In this, the third installment in the Women of Justice series, we meet Kit Kenyon, a detective and hostage negotiator who's struggling to deal with a past family secret an...more

For those of you who know me you'll know that one of my favorite genres in Suspense. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. And, I also LOVE LOVE LOVE the Women of Justice series and Lynette Eason's absolutely FANTASTIC writing skills. She instantly pulls me in to each book and wraps me up in the pages. Each page turn brings more exciting, fast paced suspense.

Kit and Noah are targeted for two completely different purposes, but as they devote time and energy to finding the person behind the killings, they discover there is more than a common goal betw...more

WOW! I loved, loved, LOVED this book!!! I found it nearly impossible to put down! While this is the first book I have read by Lynette—and the third in a series—I was instantly caught up in the drama and while enough backstory was given so I was never confused, I am now itching to get the two previous books and read of Samantha and Jamie’s adventures in detail! By the time I got to the end of this book, Lynette Eason was firmly written in my list of favorite authors, and A Killer Among Us is now...more

A Killer Among Us is exhilarating! The story is about 2 detectives, Noah and Kit who are new partners and find themselves working on a serial killer case. Not only are there people getting killed around them but it is evident that either Noah or Kit are getting hunted too! Trying to work with new a new partner is always a struggle especially when you find yourself attracted to that person as well.

Once you start reading A Killer Among Us, you'll have a hard time putting it down. There is a ton o...more

The latest thriller in the Women of Justice series, Lynette Eason pulls out all the punches in her book, A Killer Among Us.

I couldn't even begin to describe how anxious I was to read and review the 3rd and final book in the "Women of Justice" Series ~ "A Killer Among Us!" Lynette Eason has quickly become one of my Favorite Christian Suspense Authors for sure! While this book is the last in the series it easily would read as a stand alone however, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND you read the other two ~ "Too close to Home," and "Don't Look Back." A Killer Among Us introduces us to Kit and Noah. Kit is a High Profile Negotia...more

I enjoyed A KILLER AMONG US, but it did not captivate me from the first page like the other two books in the Women of Justice series.

Kit Kenyon is a hostage negotiator who has been teamed with new partner, Noah Lambert. Though attracted to Noah from the start, she feels the need to prove to him she is as good of a cop as any, even if she is a woman.

Noah Lambert is taken with Kit’s keen abilities as a negotiator. The fact that she’s beautiful hasn’t escaped his notice either. But he knows a roman...more

Lynette Eason is back and her third title in the Women of Justice series is once again not for the faint of heart.


If you’re squeamish, the disturbing and sometimes graphic descriptions of the serial killer’s methods in this story might turn you off. However, if you’re looking for an exhilarating, fast-paced, suspenseful thrill then you are in for a treat!


The action seems never-ending and A Killer Among Us is an interesting combination of murder, suspense and romance all rolled into one.

This is the third book that I’ve read of Lynette Eason and I must say this one is my favorite. A Killer Among Us is so well written that I couldn’t figure out who the serial killer was. Usually I try to always figure out the killers, but was surprised this time. A Killer Among Us is the third book in the Women of Justice series, which is a fantastic series.
Kit is a hostage negotiator and Noah is a very good detective and they become partners. Both of them have things in their past concerning the...more

Review on my blog (to be posted 3/21): http://christianbookshelfreviews.blog...

A Killer Among Us, the final book in the Women of Justice series, is the fifth book I've read by Lynette Eason and another great suspense read! I loved the two main characters, Kit and Noah, but I think Jamie and Dakota (from book two, Don't Look Back) are still my favorite couple in the series with these two being a close second. :)

The story opens with thirty-two-year-old hostage negotiator, Detective Kit Kenyon, in the middle of a stand-off with a forty-four-year-old man named Virgil Mann who had taken his wife, Ann, and their twelve-year-old daughter, Melanie, as hostages. Kit’s new partner of three weeks, Noah, wasn’t with her as he was tied up at a murder scene. Kit was on her own, although she did have the sharp shooters outside ready at any moment to take the suspect down.

Noah Lambert is a religious man who had a “r...more

A top notch hostage negotiator with secret hurts, Kit Kenyon is a determined and driven individual with a heart to help others. Soft spoken, kind-hearted Noah Lambert is out to change the world one person at a time while working as a detective. As new partners they barely have time to get to know one another before a gruesome crime is committed requiring their attention.

This turns out to be more than a random murder when more law students are found murdered and mutilated. In the heat of the sear...more

Eason's third book in her Women of Justice series will not leave you disappointed. It's full of the high action, mystery, romance that fans have to expect. She, as she did in the other two books in the series, does a beautiful job of developing the primary characters as well as the secondary characters. By the end of the book, it really feels like you've gotten to know the Cash family and the in-laws very well.

Specifically if you liked the character of Sam in the first book, Kit's character is...more

I got chills from the first couple of chapters and I didn’t want to put the book down. Which was pretty much true for the entire story.

What I love about the “Women of Justice” series that has really set them apart in my opinion, is the viewpoint of the villain included in the story. To get inside his head?—chilling and a unique spin on the normal mystery formula.

While “A Killer Among Us” can be read separate from its predecessors, I enjoyed the chance to catch up with the characters from the pr...more

I can't believe HE did it! That jerk was a complete psycho. The author left a few clues to the serial killer's identity, but I sure didn't guess The Judge as him right away. This book has believable characters, real tension, complete with clever plot twists and turns. Just a hint of Kit & Noah's sweet romance, Jamie & Dakota's newlywed status, and Samantha & Connor's established marriage, complete with baby. I really enjoyed reading the sisters' stories.

One by one...Noah is always po...more

I expected warm and fuzzy. I have read some Christian fiction, I didn't like them because they were too warm and fuzzy. I was so wrong. This book is full of energy and action. It is a faced paced roller coaster. I stayed up late last night just to finish it. I could not put it down. (I almost cried in the end. I loved the storyline, even the gross parts (there are a few). I loved the characters. I have never been so happy to be wrong about a book. If you are not a reader of Christian books, give...more
