Kate's longtime love interest, State Agent John Tomasetti, is dead set against her taking on such an unorthodox assignment, knowing she'll have limited communication - and even less in the way of backup.
But Kate can't turn her back, especially when the rumor mill boils with disturbing accounts of children in danger. She travels to New York, where she's briefed and assumes her new identity as a lone widow seeking a new life. Kate infiltrates the community and goes deep undercover.
In the coming days, she unearths a world built on secrets, a series of shocking crimes, and herself, alone...trapped in a fight for her life.

Conclusion really disappointing
I love Linda Castillo stories. Love the characters and settings. This story did not hold up Kate Burkholder managed to get over every object put in her way, not believable, and the conclusion made it clear that she wouldn't have lasted five minutes in that hostile environment. Disappointing.

An Amish community in trouble.
Chief of Police Kate Burkholder leaves Painters Mill to go undercover in upstate New York. She goes into a reclusive Amish settlement to followup on the death of a young girl. Things on the outside look OK but the wall of silence within the community makes it hard to understand what is actually going on.
Kate takes on the assignment against the wishes of her partner John Tomasetti which doesn't bode well for their relationship.
I really enjoy this series of books but recently read a review that talked about the annoyance of Kate's and John's insecurity. I am in agreement with that reviewer! They need to take a risk!!
However, another good story read beautifully by Kathleen McInerney.

Like Visiting A Good Friend
Still after eight Kate Burkholder’s adventures in this series, I pre-ordering then count the minutes for each of Linda Costello’s latest to go live. I will continue to get so. I enjoy this strong character that is also sweet to those that live in a manner that she has not chosen for herself. The secondary stories and characters are like old friends as well. I was thankful that the author took Kate on the road to another community and adventure, this time - I am not sure how much tragedy Painters Mill can take?

Another Good News, Bad News Disappointment
The good News is the story is interesting and Kathleen McInerney is flawless - as usual. But in the last two Kate Burkholder novels, (this and ‘After the Storm’) Linda Castillo has turned the Chief of Police into an airhead with a death wish. I hope she stops allowing her main character to be so illogical and rash, and stops having her partner, Tomasetti, continue apologising when he’s in the right.
