Boy, was this a sick/dark book--I loved it! If you are a fan of gory mystery/suspense books like I am, you will enjoy all of Lynn Hightower's books. Her book "Flashpoint" was one of the most wonderfully horrifying books I've ever read! I quickly went back to Amazon and bought all the books they offered by Ms. Hightower. "Satan's Lambs" introduces the reader to a new character, Lena Padget. I miss her female Detective who had the lead in her previous books, like "Flashpoint," but I'm learning to like Lena and Joel almost as much. I just finished the second book in the series, and will probably read the third this week. Good stuff!!!

A chilling foray into satanic cult depravity, this book will make your skin crawl. It doesn't provide overly-graphic descriptions of the atrocities performed by the cult members, but rather leads you "gently" into the madness and allows your imagination to run wild. Characters are vividly drawn; so much so that you are truly emotionally invested in the plot. On more than one occasion, I found myself suspicious of certain individuals, and questioning their motivations... that's a sure-fire way to snag your attention and drag you through Hell, willing or not.

Ms. Hightower's writing style is provocative and engaging, and she pushes all the right buttons. The subtly-crafted action is perfect, and the tension palpable. I raced to the end, and then wished I had read more slowly to savor each chapter. This book will make you nervously glance over your shoulder, and you may never look at seashells the same way again. A fun, fast, nasty ride all the way. Highly recommended.

Review: SATAN'S LAMBS by Lynn Hightower

Definitely not for the faint of heart, SATAN'S LAMBS is a high-powered detective/metaphysical/psychological study, not amiss for the fact that it's original publication was in 1993, before the era of cell phones and before widespread home computer use. In context, it doesn't seem bewildering when the protagonists must hunt a pay phone, because the storyline flows so smoothly and definitely captures the reader's attention. The author adds a plethora of scenic details, as the story travels from University community Lexington, KY, to Appalachian Eastern Kentucky, and Knoxville and Nashville, TN, with points in between. An abducted child, badly injured mother, and a generational satanist family cult are bright splashes of colour, again riveting readers' attention. I look forward to exploring more mysteries by this accomplished author.

I found this 1993 book somewhere recently,and being what Dorothy Parker called a "constant reader" (only I think she said "constant Weader fwowed up" in a review she wrote of an A. A. Milne work - ?? (bookworms/Parker fans/quotemeisters help me out here)----
this first in a new series featuring character Lena Padgett is so absorbing, so suspenseful, so interesting, and so very well written that I just can't believe I haven't run across a review or recommendation regarding this author in the 15 years since SATAN'S LAMBS was written. I'm hoping she's written much more since then, and I plan to read them all. I have almost no tolerance for the romantic suspense genre because they're practically predictable by definition. Not in this case, though! Or rather, the characters are so likable that I actually looked forward to those scenes, and that was a big refreshing change for me. Mind you, this novel is not in that genre, but has a potential romantic relationship between the main characters Lena Padgett and the police cop who believes her fears that a satanic cult is out to get her and some especially innocent victims.

(For those who have read Michael Gruber's excellent novels of voodoo/supernatural suspense "Tropic of Night" and "Night of the Jaguar" featuring Cubano detective Jimmy Paz -- the police character and love interest in SATAN'S LAMBS is reminiscent of him, only even more attractive.

Hightower has created at least three other characters I really care about (including a charming rescue dog and his master, a black superhero park ranger. This book is truly one of those you clear your calendar for, turn off the phone, and wish it would not end.

If you are on the picky side, needing your thrillers to be well-written, definitely give this novel a go. It does't hit a single false note!
Go Lena! and Go Lynn Hightower!! Listen up awards juries!! Why haven't we heard more about this excellent writer's books?

This book keeps you on the edge of your seat. Not only is the protagonist the most awesome (and likable!)tough gal, but the ending of the story is one of the most satisfying ever!!

Monam
I thought this book was so good! It was one of those you never want to put down! It kept you on the edge of your seat the whole time! You never knew what was going to happen next!
