About the Author

Bestselling author Linda Castillo knew at a young age that she wanted to be a writer and penned her first novel at the age of thirteen. In her spare time, Linda enjoys reading, showing horses and barrel racing. She lives in Texas with her husband, four lovable dogs, two barn cats and two Appaloosa horses. Her first novel featuring Kate Burkholder was Sworn to Silence.

Reviews

The horrific murder of an Amish family rocks the small town of Painters Mill, Ohio, in Castillo's second thriller featuring Chief of Police Kate Burkholder. A lapsed member of the community herself, Burkholder confronts the life she abandoned many years ago-and its very dark secrets. Castillo builds a fascinating story that delves into a little known universe and populates it with authentic situations and characters. Kathleen McInerney does an excellent job of portraying this diverse cast, especially the Amish, who she instills with a shy, quiet dignity, and she handles the Pennsylvania Dutch language with the ease of a native. Although the brutality in the story can be quite disturbing in places, McInerney's grounded reading keeps it from feeling gratuitous. A compelling listen, well-written and expertly narrated. A Minotaur hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 12). (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

"Though the violence level is high, the brutality is offset by Kate's and her team's very capable police procedure and investigation. Another solid effort that will appeal to fans of Karin Slaughter and Tami Hoag."--"Library Journal""Another knock-out job. I love this series."--Alex Kava "Castillo excels at detailing gory crimes scenes."--"Publishers Weekly""[The] unique setting and a very human heroine make this a good recommendation for readers seeking an alternative to the urban whodunit."--"Booklist""The second book in Castillo's series is . . . as well crafted, interesting and unique as the first. The combination of Amish life and the brutal work of a police chief create plenty of tension and excitement."--"Romantic Times" (Top Pick, 4 1/2 stars)"With a serial killer and now a mass murder in tiny Painters Mill, Castillo will need to be inventive to maintain the plausibility in this addictive series. Fortunately, she seems up to the task."--"Akron"" Beacon Journal""Castillo keeps the pace quick, the story compelling, and her manner towards the Amish reverent."--Katherine Osborne, Indiebound
