Breaking Silence by Linda Castillo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Linda Castillo's series features Kate Burkholder as chief of police of a small Ohio town where there is a large Amish presence. Burkholder herself grew up Amish, but left the sect in her late teens as the result of a devastating trauma. However, she still has Amish family nearby and she continues to struggle with her past decisions. In this outing, a family is traumatized when the parents and an uncle die in a farm's manure pit. At the same time, hate crimes against the Amish are escalating from serious mischief to injury and death. Is the farm accident really an accident, and if not, is it related to the hate crimes? This is a gritty and compelling read, and I couldn't put it down!
