Kate Burkholder former Amish now english Chief of Police in her hometown. Dealing with some very gruesome murders in her jurisdiction and struggling with wondering if the murder is someone from her past. Kate works very hard to try to figure out the murders without revealing her past secret to anyone. Which makes some suspicious of her. BCI is called in by her employer behind her back and so is the Sheriff's department. Things are spiraling out of control for Kate and she is loosing control of the case as more and more come into the picture.

As Kate struggles and confirms that her suspicions of whom the killer is not, but others are thinking she does know she must reveal her secret to one man also working on the case. This turns into a surprising tryst for Kate and a great ally work with especially when she is kicked off the force in the midst of the investigation.

A must read to find out who the killer is and if Kate gets back on the force or if she moves on. ( )

Excellent debut novel. Good craft shown. Nice pairing of Burkholder and Thomasetti, two flawed individuals who complement each other in some ways. Plot was a bit predictable (I figured out who the bad guy was about 2/3 of the way through.) But Castillo made me sympathize with Kate and care about the outcome. She did a nice job with the graphic violence, not overdoing it, but not minimizing it either. Just enough to be realistic.

Made me think of William Kent Krueger novels where his main character, Cork O'Connor, is part Native American and lives in a town near a reservation, so has a foot in both worlds, white and native, and struggled with his identity early on in the series. ( )

Forwith the devil did appear, For name him and he's always near. ~Matthew Prior, "Hans Carvel"
I'm one of those writers lucky enough to have a strong support system that sustains me in the long and sometimes difficult months it takes to write a novel. This book is dedicated to my husband, Ernest, who just happens to be my real-life hero. And to Jack and Debbie for that wonderful trip to Amish country. I love you guys.
