Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo: Another new author! This novel takes place in Amish country in Ohio. Kate Burkholder, the Chief of Police in the sleepy town of Painters Mill, Ohio is faced with finding a serial killer. She and her small police force are pressured to solve these grisly murders by the gossipy town council. Enter Investigator John Thomasetti from BCI in Columbus. Things get tense!
Castillo does a fantastic job of co-mingling the Amish culture with the "English." Not only is this an exciting read to the final page, for those of us who are interested in the Amish, it is a learning experience.
