A novel by

 
 
A dark memory from the past has come home to find revenge - or redemption - in the latest New York Times bestselling thriller from Linda Castillo.

"Murder in Amish country has a certain added frisson, and Castillo's the master of the genre." - People magazine

Two years ago, "fallen" Amish man Joseph King was convicted of murdering his wife and sentenced to life in prison. Now King has escaped from prison. . .and is headed for Painters Mill. For Chief of Police Kate Burkholder, this case is personal. As a thirteen-year-old Amish girl, Kate had worshiped the ground King walked on. Still, Kate never could have imagined the nightmare scenario that becomes reality when King shows up to take his five children hostage - armed, desperate, and with nothing left to lose.
Fearing for the children's safety, Kate agrees to meet King face to face. His only request: to help him prove his innocence. Though skeptical, she agrees - only to discover that the facts and the evidence of King's case don't align, and that someone may have set him up to take the fall for murder. Someone who wants to keep a terrible secret buried forever... and is willing to kill again.

"Castillo weaves the particularities of the Amish mindset into a complex mystery that will leave you crying with pity or seething with rage." - Kirkus Reviews (starred)
