Second book in a very nice series. Police Chief Kate Burkholder who has left her Amish community must solve murders involving the people of her heritage. Add to this the fact that she has a major secret in her past, and you have a complicated situation of trying to get the people she rejected to cooperate in the investigations. Nice character development.

A one-day read - you know I had to like it. Chief of Police Katie lives and reigns in a small Amish town in Ohio. This is the second by this author featuring these characters. The mystery/crime is brutal and difficult to read about (just like the first), but Castillo truly knows how to write a compelling, can't-put-it-down thriller. And I love the tentative love affair between Kate and Tomasetti, the damaged but ridiculously attractive big-city cop. A great read if you like this kind of thing.

way too much blood and guts for me. I like a good mystery but this is not it!

I've enjoyed all the books I've read so far. There is a good mystery but also alot unfolding as the main characters learn about themselves.

Every book by Linda Castillo keeps me spellbound and turning the pages as fast as I can.
I love her writing style and her ability to bring out the best and the worst from the Amish world.

great book, a little too graphic in some points, but great characters and a good plot.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: "Another novel in the Linda Castillo series centering around life in an Amish community. When an entire family is murdered, Sheriff Kate Barkholder works to solve it."
