A literal barn burner for Kate Burkholder
When a historic barn burns to the ground in the middle of the night, Chief of Police Kate Burkholder investigates. It looks like an accident, but when the body of 18-year-old Daniel Gingerich is found inside—burned alive—Kate suspects murder.
Who would want a well-liked, hardworking, young Amish man dead? Kate is stonewalled by the Painters Mill, Ohio, community to which she once belonged. Is this peaceful and deeply religious community conspiring to hide a truth no one wants to talk about? Kate discovers a plethora of secrets and a chilling series of crimes that shatters everything she thought she knew about her Amish roots—and about herself—as she confronts her violent past and faces an unthinkable possibility.
“Murder in Amish country has a certain added frisson, and Castillo’s the master of the genre.”—People
“Castillo ratchets up the suspense to nearly unbearable levels.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch
