Description

In this gripping thriller from New York Times best-selling author Linda Castillo, a devastating murder exposes an Amish family’s tortured past.

The peaceful town of Painters Mill is shattered when an Amish grandmother is brutally murdered on an abandoned farm. When Chief of Police Kate Burkholder arrives on the scene, she learns that the woman’s seven-year-old granddaughter is gone, abducted in plain sight. Kate knows time is against her - the longer the girl is missing, the less likely her safe return becomes. The girl’s family is a pillar of the Amish community, well-respected by all. But Kate soon realizes they’re keeping secrets - and the sins of their past may be coming back to haunt them. What are they hiding and why? 

Kate’s investigation brings her to an isolated Old Order Amish settlement along the river, a community where family is everything and tradition is upheld with an iron fist. But the killer is close behind, drawing more victims into a twisted game of revenge. Left behind at each new crime scene are cryptic notes that lead Kate to a haunting and tragic secret. What she uncovers threatens to change everything she thought she knew about the family she’s fighting for, the Amish community as a whole - and her own beliefs. 

As time to find the missing girl runs out, Kate faces a harrowing choice that will test her convictions and leave one family forever changed.

Praise for Kathleen McInerney as Kate Burkholder:

"McInerney's masterly technique makes aural sense of the plain and kind Amish people bewildered by the violence, thuggery, and corruption that have come among them. McInerney's characters are alive, all human and believable." (AudioFile Magazine on Among the Wicked

"Kathleen McInerney does an excellent job of portraying this diverse cast, especially the Amish, who she instills with a shy, quiet dignity, and she handles the Pennsylvania Dutch language with the ease of a native." (Publishers Weekly on Pray for Silence

Tangled webs...

I am a little surprised that there are some low ratings already left for this book. When I first started listening I noticed someone had left a one star rating with no review. That's not fair to the author or potential listeners. This is such a good book. It is a vivid procedural that takes place in Painters Mill, OH. The characters are mostly Amish with the exception of the various law enforcement agencies. This is the 11th book in the series and although it can be listened to as a stand alone I would suggest listening to this series in order for continuity of characters and relationships. In this book a grandmother takes her two young granddaughters out for the day to an abandoned farm for walnut picking. The grandmother is brutally murdered. One child hides and the other is abducted. More murders start taking place , all linking back to the abducted child. But the Amish people keep to themselves and getting information is no easy task. Each question that comes up requires a visit to that person's home as a phone call is not possible in this community. As a person who grew up Amish but left the fold Kate Burkholder has insight but not always trust in this cloistered community. She's often scorned and viewed as an apostate. But the murders continue and a tense plot involving some of the most respected members in the the community comes to light. Kathleen McInerney does a fantastic job narrating. This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION. If you found this review helpful please indicate so. Thank You.

Exciting Entry in the Series

What an intricately twisted plot. I was literally glued to this story while simultaneously trying to go slow to make it last. Every summer I look forward to this series, I horde the novella and full length book so I can binge. Then I’m sad because I have to wait another year to see what Chief Kate Burkholder is up to. From book 1 up until this book the character development has been amazing. The murders she solves, her awful past continually shapes her. And I love Tomasetti, another severely damaged character with a past that would break many. His growth and their romantic partnership always makes me smile. While pretending when on an overlapping case not to be involved. Kathleen McInerney was outstanding with the delivery of the story This story revolves around a brutal murder and the abduction of a 7 yr old. The destruction that the abductor brings down on those he feels wronged him is brutal. Chief Kate Burkholder races against time to find this child while unraveling a horrific wrong done a long time ago. This series is a favorite of mine! I highly recommend diving in!!!!

Great potential but something changed in the end

I liked this book but somewhere in like the last 2.5 hours the writing changed. Something shifted and I can’t put my finger on it but it didn’t sound like the normal writer and I didn’t like it, I feel like Kate wasn’t acting exactly like herself and things kind of moved extremely quickly but not in a good way. I honestly didn’t like the plot twist and didn’t find it believable. Some real potential and really interesting themes but they weren’t really fully developed.

Not my favorite of the series

Did not like the way Tomesetti was portrayed in this book. He seemed way too much of a hard ass.

Predictable....

Nicely performed but story line is dull and predictable. Obvious clues thrown at the listener and but amazingly law enforcement seem clueless.

more research into language needed

quite simplistic story, knew the outcome early on and managed to put facts together long before the policewoman. annoyingly enough, she always referred to herself as a policeman and seems to have heard little of modern investigation techniques. Much more care should have gone into correct pronunciation of Amish Dutch. it was way off.

Great Book

I‘ve enjoyed this book very much, like Linda Castillos other books. Reader did a convincing job and story was gripping. Looking forward to her next book.
