Author: Linda Castillo
Publisher: Minotaur Books
Type of book: Amish crime thriller
Setting: Painters Mill, OH
Officer Chuck "Skid" Skidmore wished he hadn't indulged in that last cup of coffee.
Comments: Book #2 in the series. The crime scene is horrific - an entire family slaughtered, the two oldest girls raped and tortured. The book is full of on the edge of seat tension.
Why I chose this book: Despite the Amish thing which typically isn't my bag, I read the first one and really enjoyed it. This one didn't disappoint, either.
Why I read it to the end: Because it was really pretty engrossing, even if the ending was predictable.
My rating: 4.5/5
