Summary
In this riveting new thriller in Linda Castillo's New York Times bestselling series, Kate Burkholder races against the clock to find a missing Amish girl. An Amish grandmother is murdered on an abandoned farm, her seven year old granddaughter abducted. Chief of Police Kate Burkholder plunges headlong into a case that quickly becomes a race against the clock. She knows the longer the girl is missing, the more likely a tragic outcome. The family of the missing girl is well thought of--a pillar of the Amish community. Their pain is palpable and they cooperate in every way, but Kate soon learns they're keeping secrets... The investigation takes Kate to an isolated Old Order Amish settlement along the river in southern Ohio. At first, the community seems upstanding and helpful. But when Kate starts asking questions, they stonewall her--and the situation soon becomes dangerous. What are they hiding and why? After an attempt on her life, Kate unearths a haunting and tragic secret that changes everything she thought she knew about the family for whom she is fighting, the Amish community as a whole--and everything she thought she knew about herself. Will she reach the girl in time to save her life?

Booklist Review: "After going out to harvest walnuts from an abandoned property on a fall day, an Amish woman has been brutally murdered and her seven-year-old granddaughter is missing. The girl's younger sister, who was with them, is unharmed but can only say that ""Da Dievel"" is responsible. The hours ticking painfully by, Painters Mill, Ohio, Chief of Police Kate Burkholder won't rest until she finds young Elsie. Kate, who grew up Amish, uncovers a family secret she thinks could be the key, but no one's talking, Elsie's nowhere to be found and the killer isn't done. While Kate's made peace with leaving the fold, her frustration over not getting the whole story and the reminders to stay in her lane add to the already unbearable pressure. In her swiftly paced, eleventh entry in the best-selling Burkholder series, Castillo (A Gathering of Secrets, 2018) again captures Kate's empathic understanding of Amish culture and Deitsch, and adds atmosphere with falling-down, peeling-paint, rural settings. If they haven't already, readers looking for a fierce-female-fronted procedural should check out Catillo's best-selling series, from the get-go.--Annie Bostrom Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In the prologue of bestseller Castillo's electrifying 11th novel featuring Painters Mill, Ohio, police chief Kate Burkholder (after 2018's A Gathering of Secrets), an intruder murders Mary Yoder, a 60-year-old Amish widow, in her farmhouse. He then abducts Mary's seven-year-old granddaughter, Elsie Helmuth, who was playing outside with her five-year-old sister, Annie. In a subsequent interview, Annie tells Kate that the devil took Elsie. Kate and her team undertake a methodical search for the missing girl, knowing that the chances of recovering her alive diminish rapidly with the passing hours. A break comes with the discovery that the Helmuth family adopted Elsie as a newborn under mysterious circumstances. The stakes rise as those involved in the adoption, including the midwife who assisted in Elsie's birth, become targets of the person who took Elsie. More than one twist propels the action to its dramatic conclusion. To her credit, Castillo doesn't tie up every loose end in what turns out to be a morally complex case. 200,000 announced first printing. Author tour. Agent: Nancy Yost, Nancy Yost Literary Agency.
