A Gathering of Secrets (Kate Burkholder, #10) by Linda Castillo







When a historic barn burns to the ground in the middle of the night, Chief of Police Kate Burkholder is called in to investigate. At first, it looks like an accident, but when the body of eighteen-year-old Daniel Gingerich is found inside—burned alive—Kate suspects murder. Who would want a well-liked, hardworking young Amish man dead?

Kate delves into the investigation only to find herself stonewalled by the community to which she once belonged. Is their silence a result of the Amish tenet of separation? Or is this peaceful and deeply religious community conspiring to hide a truth no one wants to talk about? Kate doubles down only to discover a plethora of secrets and a chilling series of crimes that shatters everything she thought she knew about her Amish roots—and herself.

As Kate wades through a sea of suspects, she’s confronted by her own violent past and an unthinkable possibility.

My Review





Having read all of the Kate Burkholder books, I was excited to get my hands on this one, and it sure didn’t disappoint, the only bad thing was it had to end.
The author does an awesome job of pulling you into the story, and holding you there until the end, and you never really know how things are going to turn out until the finish.
You will come to know the main characters in this book, and others as they are recurring, but each one is a stand-alone.
If you enjoy Amish mystery and suspense this one will grab you, a don’t miss read.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher St. Martin’s Press, and was not required to give a positive review.
