Kate was brough up Amish but an incident in her childhood disillusions her and she leaves her parents' farm as soon as she can and becomes a policewoman. Now she's the chief of police in the town where she grew up and some horrific murders have been happening.
This was another unputdownable novel. Yes, the plotline is a bit predictable but the characters are well drawn and unique enough to give it depth.
I took this with me to the beach yesterday and read and read.
