Publisher's Summary

Chief of Police Kate Burkholder is called upon by the sheriff's department in rural upstate New York to assist in a developing situation that involves a reclusive Amish settlement and the death of a young girl. Unable to penetrate the wall of silence between the Amish and English communities, the sheriff asks Kate to travel to New York, pose as an Amish woman, and infiltrate the community.

Kate's longtime love interest, State Agent John Tomasetti, is dead set against her taking on such an unorthodox assignment, knowing she'll have limited communication - and even less in the way of backup.

But Kate can't turn her back, especially when the rumor mill boils with disturbing accounts of children in danger. She travels to New York, where she's briefed and assumes her new identity as a lone widow seeking a new life. Kate infiltrates the community and goes deep undercover.

In the coming days, she unearths a world built on secrets, a series of shocking crimes, and herself, alone...trapped in a fight for her life.

What the Critics Say

"[Narrator Kathleen] McInerney's masterly technique makes aural sense of the plain and kind Amish people bewildered by the violence, thuggery, and corruption that have come among them. McInerney's characters are alive, all human and believable...." (AudioFile)

    "Like Visiting A Good Friend"

    Still after eight Kate Burkholder’s adventures in this series, I pre-ordering then count the minutes for each of Linda Costello’s latest to go live. I will continue to get so. I enjoy this strong character that is also sweet to those that live in a manner that she has not chosen for herself. The secondary stories and characters are like old friends as well. I was thankful that the author took Kate on the road to another community and adventure, this time - I am not sure how much tragedy Painters Mill can take?

    Story
    "I couldn't put it down"

    The problem with starting a book one has been waiting for is that it's finished soon and we're left to wait for the next one again. This latest in the Kate Burkholder series is such a book.

    First, I have to say that the premise of this book is quite different than the previous ones. Kate leaves Painters Mills and the many characters there to go undercover in a NY Amish community. I wasn't sure I'd like that. I missed them. But the suspense level toward the end made this a cannot-stop-reading book.

    I like Tomasetti. I wish their relationship wasn't so confrontational so often. But making-up is always good.

    The narration was fine. This was a wonderful book and I'm already looking forward to the next one.

    Great, fast moving story. Excellent narration. Kate Burkholder has done it again (and lives to tell about it).

    "Only gets better"

    I would like to thank Ms. Castillo for her books on Kate. I started listening to them some months ago and just finished the latest one. They really only get better, Kate struggles to keep her indipendance in her relationship and I hope she keeps it. I was starting to get worried about Painters Mills, all these killings where a bit unbeliveble in such a small community, but then Castillo takes Kate back in time and another state. If I was to be negative about something I dont quite get why every single little utterance in PD is translated but Kate and her partners throw around some numbers who indicate some police-language and none is the wiser unless you are a police officer. But I love this series.

    "Terror and Intrigue in Amish Cult"

    This latest story by Lina Castillo grabs the reader from the start. Protagonist Kate Burkholder leaves her post to work undercover to find out what is hidden within an Amish community that turns out to fit the definition of a cult. This is most certainly a page turner that keeps you guessing until its stunning conclusion. Even after the reader is through, the story lingers on. I could not put this down! Narration was exceptional. When is the next installment? I don't want to wait!

    "Riveting!"

    I greatly enjoyed this book as I have others by same author/narrator team. Kathleen is the voice of Kate Burkholder, who delivers an outstanding performance with all other voices as well and together do an excellent job of building suspense and keep the reader engrossed in the story.
    In this installment of the series, Kate goes undercover in New York as an Amish to discover the truth behind a young Amish girl's death. In her quest to find a killer, she discovers a lot more than she ever imagined she would
    This is a compelling story and Linda creates believable characters with a strong female protagonist.

    "Conclusion really disappointing"

    I love Linda Castillo stories. Love the characters and settings. This story did not hold up Kate Burkholder managed to get over every object put in her way, not believable, and the conclusion made it clear that she wouldn't have lasted five minutes in that hostile environment. Disappointing.

    "Kate Burkholder goes undercover"

    Chief Kate Burkholder is in a unique situation and goes undercover in a New York Armish community to uncover the mysteries it holds.

    The idyllic outward face of the community belies un undercurrent of terror and uneasy.

    This is the eighth full book in the Kate Burkholder series. Having listened to this story I already want to know when the next one will be available!!!!!
