Kate Burkholder solves yet another mystery/murder but not without putting herself in deep danger.
Kate investigates the murder of an Amish woman who was married to one of her childhood friends, Joseph King. Joseph was tried for his wife's murder that he always claimed he did not commit. After one year in prison, he breaks out and returns to the home of his sister and brother-in-law, who have guardianship of his five children. He takes Kate and the children hostage and tries to convince Kate that he is innocent. He releases Kate in the hope that she will investigate and get to the bottom of it all. It is an unbelievable ending!
While this book was not one of my favorite Castillo's books, it did hold my interest to the very end.
