by Linda Castillo
- in bookstores June 2010

I read and enjoyed Castillo's first book, Sworn to Silence. This one is also set in Amish country with Police Chief Kate Burkholder.
While I'm a serious fan of murder mysteries and have been reading them for years, I was shocked that the incredibly gory descriptions of the murders of seven people in this book were written by a woman. It was hard to shake off the doom and gloom of the grisly details in the first 50 pages to really appreciate the rest of the book. Sworn to Silence wasn't quite this brutal.
If you don't want nightmares, I'd suggest that you give this book a pass.
