The "New York Times "bestselling series hailed as "gripping"
("People "magazine) and "compelling" ("USA Today") returns with
Police Chief Kate Burkholder called to the scene of a horrific
tragedy on a peaceful Amish farm.
The Slabaugh family are model Amish farmers, prosperous and
hardworking, with four children and a happy extended family. When
the parents and an uncle are found dead in their barn, it appears
to be a gruesome accident: methane gas asphyxiation caused by a
poorly ventilated cesspit. But in the course of a routine autopsy,
the coroner discovers that one of the victims suffered a head wound
before death--clearly, foul play was involved. But who would want
to make orphans of the Slabaughs' children? And is this murder
somehow related to a recent string of shocking hate crimes against
Having grown up Amish, Kate is determined to bring the killer to
justice. Because the other series of attacks are designated hate
crimes, the state sends in agent John Tomasetti, with whom Kate has
a long and complex relationship. Together, they search for the link
between the crimes--and uncover a dark secret at work beneath the
placid surface of this idyllic Amish community.
Chock full of twists and chills and set against the unusual
world of the Amish, this series "will delight fans of Chelsea Cain
and Thomas Harris" ("USA Today").
