Thriller Police Procedural | Thriller Serial Killer

Some secrets are too terrible to reveal . . .

Some crimes are too unspeakable to solve . . .

In the sleepy rural town of Painters Mill, Ohio, the Amish and “English” residents have lived side by side for two centuries. But sixteen years ago, a series of brutal murders shattered the peaceful farming community. In the aftermath of the violence, the town was left with a sense of fragility, a loss of innocence. Kate Burkholder, a young Amish girl, survived the terror of the Slaughterhouse Killer but came away from its brutality with the realization that she no longer belonged with the Amish.

Now, a wealth of experience later, Kate has been asked to return to Painters Mill as Chief of Police. Her Amish roots and big city law enforcement background make her the perfect candidate. She’s certain she’s come to terms with her past—until the first body is discovered in a snowy field. Kate vows to stop the killer before he strikes again. But to do so, she must betray both her family and her Amish past—and expose a dark secret that could destroy her.

Sound like a great read I'll have to pick this one up I do love a series.

I've been watching this book for a while now. Read lots of reviews and this sounds so good that I'm going out to buy it!

I grew up in Ohio (although I live out west now) and we weren't that far from the Amish community, so this book is particularly interesting to me. I'll have to add it to my list.

I just finished this book and couldn't put it down. The plot was fast-paced and full of plenty of twists and turns. The characters were interesting and very believable. Castillo does a great job mixing the Amish world with the English world and making both quite real. I can't wait until the next Kate Burkholder mystery!

sounds great to me! I haven't read Linda's books before

Sounds excellent. It is a great premise
for a series. I look forward to reading it.
