THE DEAD WILL TELL by Linda Castillo
In Castillo’s latest electrifying Kate Burkholder mystery, the Amish town of Painter’s Mill is plagued by a series of murders made to look like suicides. “Castillo effectively combines an airtight plot with a revealingly complex look at what can happen when a fissure develops along the fault line separating an insular community from the secular world. Castillo shows again why the phrase 'gritty Amish mystery' is no oxymoron.” — Booklist
