Publisher's Summary

Linda Castillo’s best-selling series has been called “gripping” (People)and “impossible to put down” (Bookpage) and the “teeth chattering suspense” (USA Today) continues with Gone Missing—a deeply chilling novel about a rite of passage gone horribly wrong.

Rumspringa is the time when Amish teens are allowed to experience life without the rules. It’s an exciting time of personal discovery and growth before committing to the church. But when a young teen disappears without a trace, the carefree fun comes to an abrupt and sinister end, and fear spreads through the community like a contagion.

A missing child is a nightmare to all parents, and never more so than in the Amish community, where family ties run deep. When the search for the presumed runaway turns up a dead body, the case quickly becomes a murder investigation. And chief of Police Kate Burkholder knows that in order to solve this case she will have to call upon everything she has to give not only as a cop, but as a woman whose own Amish roots run deep.Kate and state agent, John Tomasetti, delve into the lives of the missing teen and discover links to cold cases that may go back years. But will Kate piece together all the parts of this sinister puzzle in time to save the missing teen and the Amish community from a devastating fate? Or will she find herself locked in a fight to the death with a merciless killer?

    Story
    "No. 4 in exciting Amish series."

    This is the fourth in the Police Chief Kate Burkholder series. Kate is police chief in a small town which borders on an Amish community-one in which Kate grew up herself in the Amish faith, and which she left without committing to the church. She is therefore an outsider in the normal “Englisher” community as well as considered a traitor to the Amish community. But she has made a good name for herself and both sides trust her to be fair and work with her. This case begins with a fight between two teenage girls, one of them her own relative. She breaks up the fight but learns that Sadie Miller has very strong dreams to leave the Amish community and the stultifying atmosphere. Then, a girl turns up missing in another Amish community and Kate consults, because of her knowledge of Amish ways and Pennsylvania Dutch. But two things happen which pull Kate in opposite directions. First, the disappeared girl turns up as a dead body and thus a homicide. And, she learns that her relative has gone missing. It soon becomes clear that there have been several missing girls in the past who have not been found, and they have all been Amish teenagers who “disobeyed the rules” of the church. Is this a hate crime against the Amish? Is this perpetrated by an Amish person punishing girls who don’t conform? Or are Amish girls more vulnerable because they don’t get the street knowledge of a regular teenager? And will Kate figure all of this out before it is too late to save her relative? This series continues in its exciting page-turning fashion. The narrator is very good, and this book leaves us with kind of a cliff-hanger ending so we know there will be another book.

    Story
    "An intriguing Tale with the Amish angle prominent."

    Most of us approach a new Author & Narrator with a deal of trepidation but I can honestly say that I have thoroughly enjoyed all four of the books in this series.
    The development of the lead characters over the course of the 4 books is subtle & gradual. This book has a good story which brings in the Amish setting in a surprising manner.
    The narration is excellent and even though the main male character is quite gruff, Kathleen McInerney has developed a voice for him which conveys his troubled background admirably.
    Altogether a most enjoyable read & series.

    "And again another Amish-Psychopath Thriller"

    This is a solidly written crime novel again located in the Amish/English community. Again Kate Burkholder and Tomasetti are trying to get their relationship going and again Kate isn't really sure. Again hideous crimes are done and the victims are again Amish young females. Somehow I was wondering if I had listened to it before. In my opinion so far the weakest of the four novels featuring Burkholder.
