    • Abstract:
      Summary: A deadly fire exposes the dark side of Amish life in this harrowing new thriller in the New York Times bestselling series. 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.

Booklist Reviews 2018 June #1

This is the tenth Police Chief Kate Burkholder mystery (following Down a Dark Road, 2017), and it finds her in a comfortable romantic relationship, with a hint of a wedding in the air. But she still grapples with issues from her long-ago break with the Amish as well as debilitating memories of a traumatic sexual assault in her teen years. When the body of a 19-year-old is found during Rumspringa, the Amish "running around" time—the young man was burned alive in the locked storage room of a historic barn—Kate determines that the cause of death was murder and ponders who would want the well-liked victim dead. Further crimes heighten the complexity and suspense. The Amish tenet of separation from the rest of society always makes Kate's investigations difficult, but this time it escalates into a conspiracy to hide a truth that no one wants to talk about, with the lines blurring further between the sin of pride, to be avoided at the soul's peril, and the practices of shaming, shunning, and revenge. Another strong entry in a New York Times best-selling series. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

In this next in the popular Amish mystery series featuring Chief of Police Kate Burkholder, a stately old barn burns to ash with 18-year-old Daniel Gingerich inside. It's no accident, and Kate soon learns that Daniel wasn't the sweet, self-effacing guy he appeared to be. Major promotion.

Bestseller Castillo addresses the topic of sexual assault in Amish communities in her riveting 10th mystery featuring Painters Mill, Ohio, police chief Kate Burkholder (after 2017's Down a Dark Road). When 18-year-old Daniel Gingerich's death in a barn fire is ruled a murder, Burkholder searches for a motive. His family and friends insist he was well-regarded and had no enemies, but conversations with his peers gradually reveal another story. As Burkholder learns more about Gingerich, she grapples with painful memories from her own adolescence and finds herself empathizing with his killer, while her partner, Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation agent John Tomasetti, offers a countering view. Castillo's sensitive handling of her subject matter builds a nuanced, often troubling picture of insular, patriarchal communities in which silence allows predators to thrive. Details of Amish crafts, family life, and commerce contrast with the ugliness of the crimes, and despite a convoluted resolution and cursorily resolved subplot, armchair travelers should find this a satisfying outing.
