Even the Amish have secrets! Ride along with Sheriff Kate Burkholder as she chases a vicious murderer in a rural Ohio town in Fallen.
Rachel was Amish. She was also recently alive. But after returning to her hometown, she was beaten to death in her motel room.
“Painters Mill was a place of brutal lessons, rules she couldn’t abide by, and crushing recriminations by people who, like her, possessed the power to hurt.”
Was Rachel killed because of her past Amish life? Did someone follow her from her current life in Cleveland to murder her? Could it have been her allegedly true tell-all about her life in the small rural Amish community that set someone off? Sheriff Kate needs to find the answer in the thirteenth entry in this riveting police procedural series.
It’s always a pleasure to return to Painters Mill, and this series entry is no exception. Clear clues and a complex motive add fun to the chase for justice. Fallen is perfect for armchair detectives. 4 stars!
