Description

Linda Castillo follows her instant New York Times best seller, Shamed, with Outsider, an electrifying thriller about a woman on the run hiding among the Amish.

While enjoying a sleigh ride with his children, Amish widower Adam Lengacher discovers a car stuck in a snowdrift and an unconscious woman inside. He calls upon Chief of Police Kate Burkholder for help, and she is surprised to recognize the driver: fellow cop and her former friend, Gina Colorosa.

Years before, Kate and Gina were best friends at the police academy and patrol officers in Columbus, but time and distance have taken them down two very different paths. Now, Gina reveals a shocking story of betrayal and revenge that has forced her to run for her life. She’s desperate for protection, and the only person she can trust is Kate - but can Kate trust her? Or will Gina’s dark past put them all in danger?

As a blizzard bears down on Painters Mill, Kate helps Gina go into hiding on Adam’s farm. While the tough-skinned Gina struggles to adjust to the Amish lifestyle, Kate and State Agent John Tomasetti delve into the incident that caused Gina to flee. But as Kate gets closer to the truth, a killer lies in wait. When violence strikes, she must confront a devastating truth that changes everything she thought she knew not only about friendship, but the institution to which she's devoted her life.

Love this series...

This is book 12 in the Kate Burkholder series. The books in this series are basically all stand alone however because on continuously developing relationships I would suggest listening to this series in order.
This book is very reminiscent (for me) of the movie WITNESS with Harrison Ford. There’s the corrupt police department. A cop trying to escape only to be injured by her dirty coworkers. A mad dash to her old friend and roommate Kate Burkholder, the police chief on an Amish community that she used to be part of.
This is an excellent series. It is very well written. The characters are fleshed out and believable. The landscape is described vividly and it has a plausible story line.
Kathleen McInerney does a wonderful job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

One of the best Kate Burkholder novels!

This was a great one. So much suspense and a wonderful peek into Burkholder’s mysterious past. Kathleen McInerney does her usual exceptional job - I wish she could perform on a lot more novels. I strongly recommend it.

Good Addition To The Series

A Columbus cop from Kate Burkholder’s past arrives in Painter’s Mill and turns her world upside-down. Gina Colorosa fled Columbus amidst allegations of corruption with a gunshot to her shoulder. Kate is at odds to help her because of their unpleasant past and she knows that harboring a fugitive could get her into serious trouble. But a blizzard keeps them in close quarters together within the home of an Amish widower and his three kids. Kate and her partner Tomasetti’s do their own investigation into whether Gina’s claims are valid. It seems that someone is trying to frame her, but she’s not entirely innocent and Kate can tell Gina is not being entirely truthful.

I enjoyed the setting of a rural farmhouse covered with feet of snow. The weather itself is bit of antagonist here in addition to the corrupt Columbus cops. That Kate and Gina are forced to live in an Amish domestic setting for the duration of the story was quaint. And I appreciated that this plot went beyond the usual close-knit community and explored the department that got Kate started as a cop. That glimpse into her past delivered some new insight into Kate’s history. This was another solid, exciting installment in the series.

Kathleen McInerney was fantastic with the delivery of the story

Not my favorite

I thoroughly enjoyed the previous books, and looked forward to this one. I was disappointed with the old friend, Gina. There was absolutely nothing likable about her, and she was such a cliche. Since she dominated the story, it made the entire story one I couldn’t wait to be over. I missed Kate’s team too. They’ve always added an essential element to the stories. Ah well, hopefully the next book is back on track.

Duplicity and Suspense

Cannot get enough of Linda Castillo's novels set in rural Ohio. The plots are never predictable and always offer mystery, suspense, psychological thrills, and just plain good storytelling. I feel like I become more acquainted with each character with each new novel. This latest installment had more than a few plot twists and turns. I did not know who to trust or what was coming next! Highly recommend every one of Ms. Castillo'a books, but don't start reading unless you have time since they are so engrossing and narration so spot on that you will not want to pause until the very last sentence!

Good and fresh storyline, but lacking in depth and engagement.

I have been looking forward to this newest edition to the Kate Burkholder series. Already in the introduction I was surprised with this new perspective and was expecting the book to take me through a combination of action and psychological thriller. Instead it served only as backdrop to an unnecessary long cohabitation between characterless personas. The book ends with a confrontation that has been promised in the introduction. Naturally it failed to encompass what otherwise would have been a surprisingly good story.
