"Two years ago Joseph King was convicted of murdering his wife and sentenced to life in prison. He was a "fallen" Amish man and, according to local law enforcement, a known drug user with a violent temper. Now King has escaped, and he's headed for Painters Mill. News of a murderer on the loose travels like wildfire and putting Chief of Police Kate Burkholder and her team of officers on edge. A nightmare scenario becomes reality when King shows up with a gun and kidnaps his five children from their Amish uncle's house. He's armed and desperate with nothing left to lose. Fearing for the safety of the children, Kate leaps into action, but her frantic search for a killer leads her into an ambush. When King releases her unharmed, asking her to prove his innocence, she begins to wonder whether the police are hiding something, and she embarks on her own investigation to discover the truth."-- Provided by publisher.

This is a great addition to this series about the Amish and Kate Burkholder, police chief. She meets her a childhood friend who has escaped from prison, after being convicted of the murder of his wife. The story that follows shows her friend in a bad light with tales of drugs , drunkness and spousal abuse that appears to have lead to the murder of his wife. With only his word and a convincing story by his five year old daughter, she moves down the road of discovery trying to clear his name. Good story well developed until the very end.
