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

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!
