    1. fearless female private investigator in the South takes on a satanic cult that practices human sacrifice in this gripping Shamus Award winning mystery Seven years ago Lena Padget s life exploded when Jeff Hayes, her devil worshipping brother in law, killed her sister and two year old nephew The horrific double murder hardened the once gentle Kentucky native and compelled her to leave graduate school in order to help protect abused and endangered women from human monsters Now Hayes and his sadist [...]

    2. Review SATAN S LAMBS by Lynn HightowerDefinitely 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 d [...]

    3. SATAN S LAMBS is police procedural than PI yet this off balance of investigation and blind luck leads to an interesting array of characters, leads, and unfortunate events Lena Padget, is a smart and sassy PI who has a somewhat undefined relationship with the law by virtue of her romantic encounters with Detective Mendez Like any PI novel, the hardnosed dick has some form of interaction with the boys in blue, and in this case is between sheets than competing for justice SATAN S LAMBS is driven [...]

    4. EnjoyableThought this true crime It s not, however, author has written it like it is She has done much research and made it very believable I really enjoyed this Fast paced, page turner.

    5. 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 than one occasion, I found myself suspicious of certain individuals, and questioning their motivations that s a sure fire way to snag your at [...]

    6. It took me quite a while to get into Satan s Lambs Hightower writes proficiently, but the story took some time to develop and whilst the characters were well drawn it wasn t until well into the book that I started to identify with them My feeling was that the first half of the book spent too much time trying to set out the context for the story and flesh out the characters and their relationship with one another In the second half of the book there was a better balance between description, actio [...]

    7. I hope I may be forgiven for not remembering much about this book, since it s been 15 years since I read it It s a detective novel by one of the people who belonged to the Science Fiction and Fantasy Workshop which I ran for than 15 years and for which I put out a monthly newsletter I stopped with issue 300 a few years ago.What I recall is that this is a horror plus mystery novel or maybe vice versa and that it was well written with an interesting sleuth.

    8. Once upon a time, Lynn Hightower was my idol I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED her Alien Blues series and so wish they were still around.This is a mainstream mystery thriller, not science fiction, still excellent, but Ms Hightower is never one to pull punches, she is graphic and brutal as the situation calls for.It s beyond me why she never became as huge as Faye Kellerman or Laura Lippman, or Karin Slaughter She paved the way, and I miss her books.

    9. The tension starts early in this novel as a killer is released from jail and announces his intention to complete a mission by killing Lena Padgett the sister and aunt of the original victims More tension is piled on as a child is taken foe evil purposes Take your Xanax before you start of just skip to the end and see what happens.

    10. I read some other books by this author some years ago and they were pretty good I m figuring this might have been one of the first things she ever wrote as it was pretty bad Plus the printing was awful But it filled a hole I had in a board challenge
