Publisher's Summary

The chill of autumn is just settling into Holmes County, Ohio, when Bishop Leon Shetler is startled out of his morning reverie by the words, "I just killed Glenn Spiegle."
No one - least of all Sheriff Bruce Robertson - believes that Crist Burkholder could actually be a murderer. But the young Amish man is adamant that he killed his romantic rival in order to win Vesta Miller. So when Robertson's investigation reveals two potentially related murders in Florida's Pinecraft Amish community, Professor Mike Branden and Detective Ricky Niell head south to unravel the connection between the dead man and a far-flung Amish outpost on the shores of Sarasota Bay.

Great story.

I've listened twice to all of PL Gaus's story's to this point. I thoroughly enjoy them all. Especially this one -"Harmless as Doves also Separate from the world which was suspenseful and riveting.
I too know Holmes County and several Amish friends & business acquaintances.
The narrator is very good; clear and concise. (Though I wish that he would change up his pitch a little more when changing characters, it gets a bit confusing at times. )
All in all I love Mr. Gaus's books, I cannot wait for more.
