bestselling series, a convicted murderer is on the run and
Chief of Police Kate Burkholder must catch him before he
Two years ago, Joseph King was convicted of murdering his
wife and sentenced to life in prison. Now King, a “fallen”
Amish man known as a drug user with a violent temper, has
escaped, and he’s headed for Painters Mill.
News of a murderer on the loose travels like wildfire,
putting Chief of Police Kate Burkholder and her team of
officers on edge. But this is personal for Kate. She grew
up with Joseph King. As a thirteen year old Amish girl,
she’d worshipped the ground he walked on. She never could
have imagined the nightmare scenario that becomes reality
when King shows up with a gun and takes his five children
hostage at their Amish uncle’s farm. Armed and desperate,
he has nothing left to lose.
Fearing for the safety of the children, Kate makes contact
with King only to find herself trapped with a killer. Or
is he? All King asks of her is to help him prove his
innocence—and he releases her unharmed. Kate is skeptical,
but when the facts and the evidence don’t align, she
begins to wonder who she should trust. Spurned by some of
her fellow cops, she embarks on her own investigation only
to unearth an unspeakable secret—and someone who is
willing to commit murder to keep it buried.
