review 1: Reading a book by an author you really like is kind of like renewing a friendship with an old friend. I like this series about the Amish, although I doubt there is this much violence in their community. I'm not saying there's not violence, but I think there have been at least t...

review 1: I like murder mysteries and even like the "blood and guts", as long as it isn't too graphic. The rape and torture scenes almost made me stop reading, but I am glad I finished. I guessed the killer right away, too. I like the author's main character, Kate and the strong woman she ...

review 1: It took me a while to finish this book. I was visting Amish country in Ohio and thought it would be a great read while I was there. However, the violence in this book is pretty brutal so I put it down and bought the new Beverly Lewis on my kindle. I picked the book up a week late...

review 1: c2011: FWFTB: Amish, children, poop-pit, righteous, justice. It is not about the whodunit, I think but more the character of the main protagonist, Kate Burkholder. I could spot the killer almost from the first but it was great to get more of Kate's background in this book. The ch...

review 1: I received an advanced readers edition off of Goodreads First Reads a while back. This book definitely caught my interest once I started reading it. Probably had a lot to do with my odd fascination for Amish novels and my personal interest in careers of law enforcement. The autho...

review 1: Chief Kate Burkholder and State Agent John Tomasetti are investigating the disappearance of several Amish female teens. The case leads them to cold cases of the same nature.What I like about author Castillo’s writing about crimes around the Amish community is how she portrays the...

review 1: Another "can't put it down" thriller by Castillo. The Plank family moved to Ohio about a year ago. Kate, the police chief, must investigate the murder of the entire family of seven. There are few clues until Kate finds the diary of the 15 year old victim. Again there are many tw...

review 1: This book is part of a cop series. The lead character, a woman, is the chief of police in a small town. What's interesting is that she is a lapsed Mennonite. What is not interesting is the gruesome, CSI-style details of the murders she investigates. I listened to it as an audio b...

review 1: I am really enjoying this series. Chief Kate Burkholder is investigating a series of brutal murders and attacks of the Amish. Are they related? Frustration grows as the Amish are not very helpful to the police, preferring to deal with things in their own way. Kate uncovers some v...

review 1: [library audiobook, no financial reason to finish; plot summary elsewhere]This was almost a 5, but the deduction was for the unreality of the last scene, where Burkholder is allowed to do things she never would have been allowed to do.Story takes place in Coshocton County, where ...

review 1: This short story is the first thing I've read by this author who has been recommended to me. The lead character is the Chief of Police from a small town, and she was once Amish. This sounds like an interesting premise, and I'd like to read more about her. Kate and her boyfrien...
