New York Times bestselling author Linda Castillo
delivers an electrifying thriller in which Chief of Police
Kate Burkholder must confront a dark evil to solve the
mysterious murders of an entire Amish family.
Plank family moved from Lancaster, Pennsylvania,
to join the small Amish community of Painters Mill less than
a year ago and seemed the model of the Plain Life—until on a
cold October night, the entire family of seven was found
slaughtered on their farm. Police Chief Kate
Burkholder and her small force have few clues, no motive,
and no suspect. Formerly Amish herself, Kate is no
stranger to the secrets the Amish keep from the English—and
each other—but this crime is horribly out of the
State agent John Tomasetti arrives on the
scene to assist. He and Kate worked together on a previous
case during which they began a volatile relationship. They
soon realize the disturbing details of this case will test
their emotional limits and force them to face demons from
their own troubled pasts—and for Kate, a personal connection
that is particularly hard to bear.
When she discovers
a diary that belonged to one of the teenaged daughters, Kate
is shocked to learn the girl kept some very dark secrets and
may have been living a lurid double life. Who is the
charismatic stranger who stole the young Amish girl’s heart?
Could the brother—a man with a violent past, rejected and
shunned by his family and the Amish community, have come to
seek out revenge? As Kate’s outrage grows so does her
resolve to find the killer and bring him to justice—even if
it means putting herself in the line of fire.
her own bestselling debut, Linda Castillo once again
immerses us in the world of the Amish with a chilling story
that is both a fast-paced thriller and intriguing
