Broken English

Rating
The peaceful town of Millersburg, Ohio, in the heart of Ohio's Amish country, is rocked by the vicious murder of one of its citizens at the hands of an itinerant ex-convict. When a local reporter covering the story ends up dead as well, with the convict already behind bars, suspicion falls on David Hawkins, father of the first victim. But Hawkins is nowhere to be found, not even among the protective Amish colony that had taken him in as one of its own regardless of his shadowy past.

Following on the critical and popular success of his first book, mystery writer P. L. Gaus again brings us the moral and legal conundrum of Professor Michael Branden, Sheriff Bruce Robertson, and Pastor Cal Troyer as they set out to uncover the truth that seems so elusive in their otherwise quiet corner of the world.

Along the way, Gaus paints a unique portrait of the relationship between the Amish and the "English" cultures as seen from the inside. Against this backdrop, Broken English is a tale of honor, deception, and revenge, where circumstances and the search for justice test the mettle of the closest of friends and reveal the desperate measures of the strongest of foes.

Reviews

"Gaus weaves his extensive knowledge of Amish ways into this fascinating, suspenseful tale ... A deeply felt, insightful book." "A mystery man, rumored to have been trained by the U.S. military to kill, has settled in the Amish community and attempts to find peace there. When his only daughter is killed and the suspect is arrested, a wave of violence descends on the peaceful community and threatens to test the limits of friendship between the sheriff, Pastor Troyer, and Professor Branden. Another excellent addition to this series." Betty Barnes, River Reader, Lexington, MO" Gaus weaves his extensive knowledge of Amish ways into this fascinating, suspenseful tale. There is a show-in-plain-sight clue that will escape all but the most astute readers. The characters are differentiated and believable, from Sands, who feels no imposing moral dilemma to Hawkins Amish fiancee, who insists on Hawkins innocence. This is a deeply felt, insightful book.
