Publisher's Summary

Evil lurks in Amish country - and detective Elizabeth Harris is there to smoke it out in the new novel from the author of Kingdom Come.
By solving the murders of two local girls, Elizabeth has gained some trust in the Amish community. So she's the first person its members turn to when a fast and fatal illness takes hold among the Amish in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Many believe that the sickness stems from a curse placed by a practitioner of old-world folk magic. But Elizabeth doesn't believe in curses, and when an entire Amish family is found dead, she begins to suspect something far more sinister.
As the CDC is called in to investigate, customers of a Philadelphia farmers market selling Amish goods start dying. Amid rapidly escalating panic, Elizabeth must peel away layers of superstition and fear to save the livelihood - and lives - of an entire community. Because what has happened isn't an accident of nature or an act of God; it's the handiwork of someone who has only just begun to kill.

An Excellent Second Book

After thoroughly enjoying Kingdom Come, I immediately got the second book in the series. Solid plot, good characters and a really good murder mystery makes me definitely look forward to more.
Love Detective Harris and her relationship with Ezra. I felt it gives much more to the story to understand these characters who actually have a background and a life. And I loved the tension between Elizabeth and Glenn. And all the relationships she has with the Amish and the families. Really well done.
As before, in Kingdom Come, I enjoyed all the places mentioned in Lancaster that I know.
And again, Rachel Fulginiti does a really good narration with Elizabeth and the unique Amish voices.
I hope the author is busy writing more in this series!

Another Great Mystery...Just One Problem

I really enjoy the Elizabeth Harris mysteries. The characters are realistic, and the stories have satisfying conclusions. My only complaint is an overuse of profanity. Ms. Jensen could be using it for certain characters' mental states and flaws, but it's still too much. Please reconsider for the next book (which I already look forward to). You can have a villain, a rough individual, or any other person with strong emotions without such foul and reader-assaulting language.
