When a historic barn burns to the ground in the middle of the night, Chief of Police Kate Burkholder is called in to investigate. At first, it looks like an accident, but when the body of eighteen-year-old Daniel Gingerich is found inside--burned alive--Kate suspects murder. Who would want a well-liked, hardworking young Amish man dead? Kate delves into the investigation only to find herself stonewalled by the community to which she once belonged. Is their silence a result of the Amish tenet of separation? Or is this peaceful and deeply religious community conspiring to hide a truth no one wants to talk about? Kate doubles down only to discover a plethora of secrets and a chilling series of crimes that shatters everything she thought she knew about her Amish roots--and herself. As Kate wades through a sea of suspects, she's confronted by her own violent past and an unthinkable possibility.

Excellent. Probably her best yet. Hard to put down once you start reading & I finished in 3 days.

I'm NEVER disappointed when reading a book from this series!! I don't know how Linda Castillo manages to do it. As usual, this book involved Kate uncovering secrets, while making me feel sad at times, and laughing out loud at others. I love how Kate's relationship with Tomasetti has continued to evolve, too. I can't wait to read the next book!

Another good addition to this series set in Amish country. These books never fail to entertain and give you a good mystery and a good read.
