The Dead Will Tell

Kate Burkholder, chief of police in the fictional Amish community of Painters Mill, OH, was born Amish but has since left the community. She and her team are investigating a series of brutal murders, and an Amish doll found on the bodies seems to link the crimes to an infamous 35-year-old incident in which an Amish father and his four children were killed and the mother disappeared. Castillo's characters and unique setting provide a rich and interesting canvas for crime and mayhem. Series reader Kathleen McInerney does an excellent job.
VERDICT Highly recommended for audio mystery collections. ["Castillo weaves a taut mystery…that will keep suspense fans glued to their books and ereaders," read the starred review of the Minotaur: St. Martin's hc, LJ 6/15/14.]
