Publisher's Summary

A compulsively readable new series that explores a fascinating culture set purposely apart.
In the wooded Amish hill country, a professor at a small college, a local pastor, and the county sheriff are the only ones among the mainstream, or "English", who possess the instincts and skills to work the cases that impact all county residents, no matter their code of conduct or religious creed.
When an Amish boy is kidnapped, a bishop, fearful for the safety of his followers, plunges three outsiders into the traditionally closed society of the "Plain Ones".

I did enjoy this book with its excellent 'feel' for the Old order Amish community and its lovely descriptions of Ohio where we visited a few years ago. I found the solution of the murder mystery, however, a little less satisfactory. I will nevertheless probably still buy the next book in the series.

George Newbern's reading is excellent and adds to the enjoyment of the book.
