Publisher's Summary

In this electrifying thriller by New York Times best seller Linda Castillo, Kate Burkholder must uncover a family's long-hidden past to solve a brutal murder.
When a tornado tears through Painters Mill and unearths human remains, Chief of Police Kate Burkholder finds herself tasked with the responsibility of identifying the bones - and notifying the family. Evidence quickly emerges that the death was no accident, and Kate finds herself plunged into a 30-year-old case that takes her deep into the Amish community to which she once belonged.
Meanwhile, turmoil of an emotional and personal nature strikes at the very heart of Kate's budding relationship with state agent John Tomasetti. A reality that strains their fragile new love to the breaking point and threatens the refuge they've built for themselves - and their future.
Under siege from an unknown assailant - and her own personal demons - Kate digs deep into the case only to discover proof of an unimaginable atrocity, a plethora of family secrets and the lengths to which people will go to protect their own.

Awful and Dreary

This book does not have much of a plot (at least nothing that grabs your attention). The narrator is terrible. It is like being read to by your not very interested teacher at school. And as others have mentioned there is SO MUCH repetition. I've been trying to finish it, but I have given up. I'm just not that curious about what is going to happen to put myself through listening to the rest.

Too late to return it

Poorly written, slow and dull, trite language. I can't get into it & won't finish it.

Ancient death, modern despair.

Not only is a path of destruction and heartbreak left as a tornado touches down in the small town of Painters Mill, Ohio but in the clean up a skull is found in a damaged barn.

Enter Katie Burkholder, Chief of Police. The skull leads to a complex case going back thirty years and leading to scared lives in the present day.

At the same time, Kate and John Tomassetti have their own issues to deal with.

The Kate Burkholder series, set in Amish country, is one of my favorites series and I recommend all of the books. I also enjoy Kathleen McInerney's narration.
