What are they hiding and why?
The peaceful town of Painters Mill is shattered when an Amish grandmother is brutally murdered on an abandoned farm. When Chief of Police Kate Burkholder arrives on the scene, she learns that the woman’s seven-year-old granddaughter is gone, abducted in plain sight. Kate knows time is against her―the longer the girl is missing, the less likely her safe return becomes. The girl’s family is a pillar of the Amish community, well-respected by all. But Kate soon realizes they’re keeping secrets―and the sins of their past may be coming back to haunt them. What are they hiding and why?
As time to find the missing girl runs out, Kate faces a harrowing choice that will test her convictions and leave one family forever changed.
“Castillo captures Kate’s empathic understanding of Amish culture and Deitsch, and adds atmosphere with falling-down, peeling-paint, rural settings. If they haven’t already, readers looking for a fierce-female-fronted procedural should check out Castillo’s best-selling series, from the get-go.” ―Booklist
“Electrifying...more than one twist propels the plot to its dramatic conclusion...a morally complex tale.” ―Publishers Weekly
