Professor Michael Branden is intrigued when Enos Erb, an Amish man, claims that his brother, Benny—a dwarf like himself—has been murdered. But Branden’s attention is divided when a young student apparently leaps to her death from the college bell tower. 
 
As Branden and his friends, Pastor Caleb Troyer and Sheriff Bruce Robertson, begin their investigation into the girl’s death, they uncover links to a controversial genetics study investigating the effects of inbreeding within the Amish community—a study in which both Enos and Benny had participated.

Listener Opinions

    " Having lived among the Amish, in a small private college town with privileged rich students - but not in Ohio made this book all the more believable and enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 6/26/2013

    " This was different from most Amish novels I have read. Most are not mystery novels. I am going to have to look for more of these books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betty | 5/30/2013

    " I had just been to Millersburg so this book held my interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 5/6/2013

    " It was a relatively interesting read but I think I may have enjoyed it more if I had read the previous books. I found the plotting slightly clunky. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 11/20/2012

    " One more book to read in this series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debra | 8/23/2012

    " Gaus lives amongst the Amish - and it shows, unlike other books purporting to portray them. The academic atmosphere and the mystery aren't bad either. I am glad that these books keep getting written and published. Really glad to see the audio version available. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margo | 5/5/2012

    " RECOMMENDED BY LOCKPORT PUBLIC LIBRARY - INTERESTING VIEW OF HOW AMISH AND ENGLISH COULD COMBINE FOR A MURDER MYSTERY. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 12/15/2011

    " I thought that it was going to be a thrilling Amish mystery. It was a slow story that had a background story intermingled with an Amish community. Short read that was clean in language and scenes which was nice for a change. Won't read the whole series though. "
