This seventh book in Castillo's "Kate Burkholder" series (after The Dead Will Tell) opens with a tornado tearing through Painters Mill, OH. In the aftermath of the destruction, a set of bones is discovered in an old barn. Kate is called to the scene, where the forensics team is working to safely unearth the remains. Once at the lab, the investigation reveals that the bones have been buried for over 30 years. What's odder though, the hands and the feet have been chewed off. Kate and her team set to work identifying and determining what happened to the body. They conclude that it was no accident and the secrets lie deep within the Amish community.
VERDICT Series fans as well as first-time readers will be enthralled by this compelling and atmospheric mystery set in the heart of Amish country. [See Prepub Alert, 2/2/15.]
