"In this electrifying thriller by New York Times bestseller Linda Castillo, Kate Burkholder must uncover a family's long-hidden past to solve a brutal murder... When a tornado tears through Painters Mill and unearths human remains, Chief of Police Kate Burkholder finds herself tasked with the responsibility of identifying the bones-and notifying the family. Evidence quickly emerges that the death was no accident and Kate finds herself plunged into a thirty year old case that takes her deep into the Amishcommunity to which she once belonged. Meanwhile, turmoil of an emotional and personal nature strikes at the very heart of Kate's budding relationship with state agent John Tomasetti. A reality that strains their fragile new love to the breaking point and threatens the refuge they've built for themselves-and their future. Under siege from an unknown assailant-and her own personal demons-Kate digs deep into the case only to discover proof of an unimaginable atrocity, a plethora of family secrets and the lengths to which people will go to protect their own"--Provided by publisher.

I just discovered this author and I am looking forward to reading some of her other books. It was interesting how she wove the Amish culture into her story line. I learned some things that I did not know before.

This is the EIGHTH bookin 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!!!! *************AUDIOBOOK REQUESTED THRU MNLink

There are a few small plot holes in this book, which wasn't quite as strong for me as the other books in the series. But, as usual, Linda Castillo tells a riveting story.

Castillo doesn't disappoint. Entertaining read, fast-paced, with the mix of the Amish world to add a special touch to her novels

This is the first of two "new release" novels, I read back to back, that featured "murder by pig". In the case of this novel the murder occurred in the first chapter so I cannot consider it a spoiler but I shall not reveal the identity of the second book. tee hee.
