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 previous two books.
I would have liked to see Kit’s skills as a hostage investigator show-cased more. I saw how great she was in the first scene and I would have like it to play a stronger role in the plot. I think the romance thread could have been more developed, it seemed a bit abrupt in places, but did come to a well-rounded conclusion.
There is a lot of great dialogue, the ending was riveting and though I figured I knew who the villain was, to find out was as satisfying as if I never knew. Some of the cliff hanger moments kept me turning pages long after I should have quit.
A high-paced read with energy, I hope the author has other novels in the same vein.
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for providing a copy to review.
