New York Times best-selling author Linda Castillo delivers an electrifying thriller in which Chief of Police Kate Burkholder must confront a dark evil to solve the mysterious murders of an entire Amish family.

The Plank family moved from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to join the small Amish community of Painters Mill less than a year ago and seemed the model of the Plain Life - until on a cold October night, the entire family of seven was found slaughtered on their farm. Police Chief Kate Burkholder and her small force have few clues, no motive, and no suspect. Formerly Amish herself, Kate is no stranger to the secrets the Amish keep from the English - and each other - but this crime is horribly out of the ordinary.State agent John Tomasetti arrives on the scene to assist. He and Kate worked together on a previous case, during which they began a volatile relationship. They soon realize the disturbing details of this case will test their emotional limits and force them to face demons from their own troubled pasts - and for Kate, a personal connection that is particularly hard to bear.

When she discovers a diary that belonged to one of the teenaged daughters, Kate is shocked to learn the girl kept some very dark secrets and may have been living a lurid double life. Who is the charismatic stranger who stole the young Amish girl's heart? Could the brother - a man with a violent past, rejected and shunned by his family and the Amish community, has come to seek out revenge? As Kate's outrage grows, so does her resolve to find the killer and bring him to justice - even if it means putting herself in the line of fire.

Topping her own best-selling debut, Linda Castillo once again immerses us in the world of the Amish with a chilling story that is both a fast-paced thriller and intriguing psychological puzzle.

    " Police chief Kate B has another horrific crime scene on her hands, when an Amish family of seven is found slaughtered. (This idyllic Ohio Amish community is going to suffer from "Cabot Cove Syndrome" if Kate doesn't start moving afield pretty soon.. . .) Fairly soon it becomes evident that the crime is sexually-based--one teenage victim is crucial to the case, and the dark side of sex crimes dominates the story line. I liked her 1st thriller more, and figured this one out too easily (I'm usually slow), but have to say that Castillo can pace them well! "

    " This book captivated my attention from the beginning - the writing style was very easy to read. This book is about a police chief (who grew up Amish but left their world) investigating an Amish family murder. "

    " This book seemed a bit melodramatic to me, but overall it was a good story. The main character was a bit annoying at times simply because, on several occasions, she seemed unable, or at least a bit slow, to connect two pieces of information to one another. I kept wanting to yell at her and say "Remember such-and-such? Connect the dots!" "
