Kate Burkholder

In the sleepy rural town of Painters Mill, Ohio, the Amish and “English” residents have lived side by side for two centuries. But sixteen years ago, a series of brutal murders shattered the peaceful farming community. Kate Burkholder, a young Amish girl, survived the terror of the Slaughterhouse Killer but came away from its brutality with the realization that she no longer belonged with the Amish. Now, a wealth of experience later, Kate has been asked to return to Painters Mill as Chief of Police. She’s certain she’s come to terms with her past—until the first body is discovered in a snowy field. In these mystery thrillers, Kate must seek out the truth in a society of silence—and face some secrets of her own.
