This is the sixth book in the Kate Burkholder series set in Amish country in Ohio. Kate, the police chief, was raised in the faith, but was excommunicated. She still has conflicts about her loyalty to the Amish community versus the "English" as they call the outsiders. The mysteries usually involve the Amish people as victims and / or perpetrators of crimes. The books are nice, solid mystery / police procedural reads. As with all series I always recommend starting with the first in the set, as the history of the main character explains her subsequent behaviors / conflicts. If you are wondering.... a good source to find the first in almost any author's series is " Fantastic Fiction" a GREAT website!!!! ***** AUDIOBOOK AVAILABLE THRU MNLink

I liked it and I continue to be amazed that Castillo finds enough killers in the small niche she has created for herself. I am waiting to see what happens when she branches out

This is the first book I've read from this author. I found it to be very entertaining, kept my interest from page one. A good read.

I really enjoy this author. It is not necessary to read "Kate Burkholder" series from the beginning but I highly recommend that you do. They are all good.

A fast-paced read! Exciting, suspenseful and inviting. I want to go back and read her earlier writing.
