About the Book
Kate Burkholder is the Chief of Police of Painters Mill, a small town in rural Ohio, surrounded by Amish communities. Born Amish, she left the community a few years after a crime against her happened, to live among the Englishers.
In this new book, Kate is met with a challenging case. A boy scout, tasked with the cleaning after a tornado hits the town, finds a skull under the ruins of an old barn. Kate is called upon the findings and she must discover the identity of the bones and see if it was a murder or just an accident. Searching for the man is challenging but when she finds the identity, she discover a 30 year old disappearance which may cost her more than she is able to bargain.
In the meantime the tornado makes some victims, one whom Kate tried to save but she finds herself in the middle of a case when she is blamed of a little girl’s death.
Someone is out for blood, is it the girl’s parents, or the “skeleton” ‘s murderer?
I love this series, I like reading about other cultures and I find the Amish one quite fascinating. I didn’t like the little girl’s case that much even if it was more on the sidelines since I knew how it was going to end (all cases against the main character ends the same way!) but the main case was fabulous!
I’m never getting tired of Kate Burkholder, even if with her love life problems are tiring (seriously, in each books Tomasetti and her fights over something!).
