This is the fourth book in the Kate Burkholder series set in Amish country in Ohio. Kate, the police chief, was raised in the faith, but was excommunicated. She still has conflicts about her loyalty to the Amish community versus the "English" as they call the outsiders. The mysteries usually involve the Amish people as victims and / or perpetrators of crimes. The books are nice, solid mystery / police procedural reads. As with all series I always recommend starting with the first in the set, as the history of the main character explains her subsequent behaviors / conflicts. If you are wondering.... a good source to find the first in almost any author's series is " Fantastic Fiction" a GREAT website!!!!

My favorite of the Kate Burkholder series so far. Good suspense, and the perpetrator and motive were surprises. The ending sets up an intriguing scenario for a future book, as well.

Interesting background.. Amish culture.. Well-written.. I just found the ending too graphic and violent.. probably not more so than other mystery books..

Another strong book in this mystery/thriller series. Liked how the setting changed slightly too (otherwise I would think this small town must be the murder capital of the world). Linda Castillo does a good job keeping you guessing as to who the killer is as well. Strongly written main characters. Can't wait to read more of these.

A very good book. You wouldn't have guessed the ending.

I think Castillo has exhausted the Ohio Amish as the setting for her crime thrillers. This book barely managed to have a plot that held together until the end, even with the added bonus of the complicated romance between the two main characters and the predictable twist at the end

Guilt ridden narrator who's constantly beating herself over things she can't do anything about. Repetitious.
