Her Last Breath by Linda Castillo
  

Lovereading view...

What is fascinating about Linda Castillo’s mysteries is that she sets them in Amish communities and so explores their way of life. This is her fifth Kate Burkholder thriller. Kate used to be part of the Amish community and is known but because she has left she is either hated or people are very suspicious of her, often hindering her investigations. This one is particularly nasty for the Deacon and his children in their horse-drawn buggy were smashed into by a speeding car. All but one are dead. Accident? We think not.

If you like Linda Castillo you might also like to read books by J. A. Jance, Peggy Riley and Mary Higgins Clark.

Synopsis

Her Last Breath by Linda Castillo

A rainy night, a father returning home with his three children, a speeding car hurtling toward them out of nowhere. What at first seems like a tragic, but routine, car accident suddenly takes on a more sinister cast as evidence emerges that nothing about the crash is accidental. But who would want to kill an Amish deacon and his children? He leaves behind a grieving widow and a young boy who clings to life in the intensive-care wing of a hospital, unable to communicate. He may be the only one who knows what happened that night. Desperate to find out who killed her best friend's husband and why, Kate Burkholder begins to suspect she is not looking for a reckless drunk, but instead is on the trail of a coldblooded killer. It is a search that takes her on a chilling journey into the darkest reaches of the human psyche and strikes at the heart of everything she has ever believed about the Amish culture into which she was born.
