Gone Missing

. 978-1-42722-136-0. 39.95.
In Castillo’s fifth entry in her “Amish Country” series featuring police chief Kate Burkholder, Kate investigates the disappearance of several young Amish women, all of whom are going through rumspringa, a time when youth may enjoy experiences outside the strict rules of Amish life prior to baptism. The trail leads to an Ohio farm possessing a terrible secret, which will put Kate in danger and her life on the line. She relies on her skills as an investigator and background as an Amish woman who abandoned that existence to solve the case. The thrilling story holds the listener’s interest while offering a glimpse into the closed world of the Plain People. Reader Kathleen McInerney does an excellent job in presenting this gripping tale.
VERDICT This mystery is recommended for Castillo’s fans and those interested in similar stories in this setting. [“This fast-paced thrill ride through the always fascinating Amish country of Ohio should appeal to readers of Karin Slaughter, Betty Webb, and Lisa Jackson. Devotees of this series won’t want to miss it,” read the review of the New York Times best-selling Minotaur: St. Martin’s hc, LJ Xpress Reviews, 6/22/12.—Ed.]
