The crimes are brutal and not for the faint of heart, but the characterization and plot are well done.

The crimes are really brutal and disturbing, but the characters and their relationships are very interesting. Characters with alot of baggage dealing with new relationships and these characters begin to "know thyself"

Kate survived a brutal crime wave in her small, rural Amish village. Now she is back as Chief of Police, and must face the fears and memories that returning home has brought back.

Wonderful stories, easy to read and follow! Great character development! Amish life is fascinating! Really adds to the stories!
The only criticism I would have are the graphic scenes of the crime! Was a bit much for me! I wish the Author would tone these down!

The first of Linda Castillo's crime series featuring Painter's Mill Chief of Police Kate Burkholder. I started reading this series with a later title and enjoyed it so much I decided to go back and read the series in order. I like the insights she gives to the Amish way of life and thinking. I'm looking forward to continuing to rear other titles in the series.

Great book if you want to read this series I suggest you read this book first then pray for silence you also must read this author in chronological order now reading the second in series pray for silence.

this is the first book i have read of this author, and most likely also the last one. too graphic and violent scenes for my taste, not too mention the thrown in f-bombs right from the start. give me a Henning Mankell book any day over this one. his books can be graphic as well, but the story telling is much better

Great book for an early author. A little gruesome, some bad language, but a great mystery. Castillo's books get better and better.

I am not really keen on the gruesome murder carry on but I did enjoy the characters in this book and the ending where you find out who is responsible was a suprise!!
