–Kate Burkholder’s Mamm
Who is the strange woman asking for Chief Kate Burkholder after being found by Amish farmer, Adam Lengacher, outside her crashed truck in the middle of a fierce snow storm? Why is she in Painter’s Mill, Pennsylvania? This fast paced twelfth novel in the Kate Burkholder series starts out on a snowy night that quickly turns into a full blown blizzard grounding Kate and the mysterious woman at Adam Lengacher’s remote farm.
As the novel unfolds Gina Colorosa, the mystery woman and an old best friend from Kate’s early police academy days, begins to explain herself. She weaves a complex tale of what happens when the good guys turn really bad. Can Kate believe the story? Who can she depend on to help her sort through the details? Who can be trusted? The intricate web of complexities surrounding them tightens as the intense search for Gina escalates.
This intriguing suspense filled novel by Linda Castillo is well worth your time. I enjoyed the mystery, suspense, and drama of the story. Relevant to today’s headlines, this story will get your attention and keep it.
