    Thirty-year-old Barbara Weaver was content to live as the Amish have for centuries - without modern convenience - but her husband, Eli, wanted a life beyond horses and buggies. Soon he gave in to the temptation of technology and found ways to go Online and meet women. When Barbara was found dead, shot in the chest at close range, all eyes were on Eli... and his mistress, a conservative Mennonite named Barb Raber. Barb drove Eli to appointments in her car. She gave him everything he asked for: a laptop, rides to his favorite fishing and hunting spots, and sex.

    Painter's Creek, nell'Ohio, è una cittadina rurale silenziosa in cui coabitano una comunità amish e una inglese; ma è anche il luogo in cui, sedici anni prima, si è consumata una serie di brutali omicidi. Kate Burkholder, che all'epoca era solo una ragazzina, è scampata in extremis dall'essere uccisa; ma quell'esperienza le ha lasciato un senso di terribile fragilità, di perdita di innocenza, e la sensazione di non appartenere più alla comunità in cui viveva. E, da quel giorno, il killer si è misteriosamente fermato.
