In New York Times bestselling author Linda Castillo’s new thriller Fallen, a rebellious Amish woman leaves the Plain life, but the secrets she takes with her will lead Chief of Police Kate Burkholder down a dark path to danger and death.
When a young woman is found murdered in a Painters Mill motel, Chief of Police Kate Burkholder is shocked to discover she once knew the victim. Rachael Schwartz was a charming but troubled Amish girl who left the fold years ago and fled Painters Mill. Why was she back in town? And who would kill her so brutally?
Kate remembers Rachael as the only girl who was as bad at being Amish as Kate was―and those parallels dog her. But the more Kate learns about Rachael's life, the more she's convinced that her dubious reputation was deserved. As a child, Rachael was a rowdy rulebreaker whose decision to leave devastated her parents and best friend. As an adult, she was charismatic and beautiful, a rabble-rouser with a keen eye for opportunity no matter who got in her way. Her no-holds-barred lifestyle earned her a lot of love and enemies aplenty―both English and Amish.
As the case heats to a fever pitch and long-buried secrets resurface, a killer haunts Painters Mill. Someone doesn’t want Rachael’s past―or the mysteries she took with her to the grave―coming to light. As Kate digs deeper, violence strikes again, this time hitting close to home. Will Kate uncover the truth and bring a murderer to justice? Or will a killer bent on protecting a terrible past stop her once and for all―and let the fallen be forgotten?
About The Author
I hate when one of these books end, but I need answers and Linda Castillo never disappoints, and Fallen is no exception.
This one kept me guessing, and even when I finally knew the answers I kept waiting for another person to really be guilty.
This one has a bit of everything, and will keep you page-turning, deception, murder, friends and family.
Yes, this can be read alone, but your in for a treat there are now thirteen books to choose from and eight novellas!
I love spending time with Chief Kate Burkhholder, Mona, Pickles, Glock and of course, Tomasetti, they have become like old friends, and looking forward to more future reads!
I received this book through Net Galley and Macmillian Audio/ Minotaur Books and was not required to give a positive review.
