Booklist Reviews 2020 March #1

An Amish grandmother gathering walnuts is brutally murdered and her granddaughter abducted in the latest of Castillo's long-running series set in Painters Mill, Ohio. Chief Kate Burkholder, who was once part of the Amish community, feels stonewalled as she questions remaining family members. Why was this child taken? Who would murder an old woman so viciously? Kate's search for the child becomes more desperate as the clock ticks, and key witnesses are murdered. The key seems to lie somewhere in the past buried in family secrets and Amish traditions. McInerney, the regular narrator for the series, makes Kate sound competent and earnest. The reader gives characters various regional accents and slides comfortably into the Deitsch passages when needed. She does a particularly good job reading young children's dialogue, making them sound believable without feeling forced. Castillo's insights into the Amish community add a richness to this tense tale of wrong-doings and retribution. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

In the prologue of bestseller Castillo's electrifying 11th novel featuring Painters Mill, Ohio, police chief Kate Burkholder (after 2018's A Gathering of Secrets), an intruder murders Mary Yoder, a 60-year-old Amish widow, in her farmhouse. He then abducts Mary's seven-year-old granddaughter, Elsie Helmuth, who was playing outside with her five-year-old sister, Annie. In a subsequent interview, Annie tells Kate that the devil took Elsie. Kate and her team undertake a methodical search for the missing girl, knowing that the chances of recovering her alive diminish rapidly with the passing hours. A break comes with the discovery that the Helmuth family adopted Elsie as a newborn under mysterious circumstances. The stakes rise as those involved in the adoption, including the midwife who assisted in Elsie's birth, become targets of the person who took Elsie. More than one twist propels the action to its dramatic conclusion. To her credit, Castillo doesn't tie up every loose end in what turns out to be a morally complex case. 200,000 announced first printing. Author tour. Agent: Nancy Yost, Nancy Yost Literary Agency.
