Kit Kenyon is a hostage negotiator, and sheís just been teamed with Noah Lambert, a good detective with excellent skills. They havenít even had time to get used to each other when they are thrown into a case involving a serial killer. Evidence mounts up, but then they realize that who ever the killer is, he or she is targeting one of them as well.
Kit is still struggling with her role as an adopted child and getting to know her biological family in addition to getting used to a new partner. Noah is all about God, and Kit doesnít want anything to do with a God that would allow her to be given up for adoption.
But when the killer has them pinned, the only one who can possibly come to the rescue is God...but is that enough?
A Killer Among Us is the third book in Ms. Easonís Women of Justice series, but it easily stands alone. I did enjoy getting reconnected with Sam and Jamie from the earlier series, and figured that Kit would be the heroine of this book. I also figured out who the killer was right away, and couldnít believe that the police hadnít figured it out before they did.
Still, the suspense kept my interest and I read this book from start to finish in one day, neglecting my own work. I couldnít put it down. The romance isnít as strong in this book as it was in some of the other books, but it was there, and there were occasional really sweet moments. I totally enjoyed this book from start to finish.
