December 2009 Book of the Month.

A well devised plot with Amish and ‘English’ communities facing the prospect that a serial killer from the past has returned to their now peaceful lives. With plenty of characters harbouring a secret the plot unfolds tantalisingly and moves towards a suspense-filled ending. A gripping thriller with another in the series lined up.

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

Synopsis

Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo

Some secrets are too terrible to reveal ...

Some crimes are too unspeakable to solve ...

Painter's Creek, Ohio may be a sleepy, rural town with both Amish and 'English' residents, but it's also the place where a series of brutal murders shattered the lives of an entire community over a decade ago. When the killing stopped, it left in its aftermath a sense of fragility, and for the young Amish girl, Katie Burkholder, a realization that she didn't belong.

Now, 15 years, two dead parents and a wealth of experience later, Katie has been asked to return as Chief of Police. Her Amish background combined with her big-city law enforcement expertise make her the perfect candidate. Katie is certain she has come to terms with the past. Until the first body of a slaughtered young woman is found in a pristine, snowy field...
