Glenn Spiegle is rich, handsome and in love. He’s a new arrival in the Amish community of Holmes County, Ohio, and a new convert to their Anabaptist religion. And it’s not long before he’s dead.
In Harmless as Doves, Sheriff Robertson, Professor Branden and Deputy Neill arrive on the scene to find that Crist Buckholder has already confessed. A rival for the hand of Spiegle’s betrothed, Crist is convinced he killed Spiegle, but his recollections don’t jibe with the details of the crime.
When a friend of Spiegle’s runs off to Florida—and then disappears, leaving a blood trail—it becomes clear that the case will be anything but open-and-shut.
P.L. Gaus probes the complexities of a simple people in this Amish-Country Mystery.
