A series of hate crimes against the Amish community is keeping the local police extremely busy. When Chief of Police Kate Burkholder and her officers are called to the Slabaugh farm, they find the Amish Farmer, his wife, and his brother, dead in the manure pit, overcome by methane gas. They leave behind four children whose only living relative is an uncle who is under the Amish ban.
But a routine autopsy shows that this was no accident. Someone wanted them dead. It's up to Kate, Sheriff Rasmussen, and State Agent John Tomasetti to figure out who killed the Slabaughs and if it is tied to the wave of hate crimes.

This is the third book in the Kate Burkholder series and my favorite so far. The mystery was superb. Just when I think I have part of the mystery figured out, the author throws in new information I didn't see coming. I also love the characters in this series. Kate and John are both seriously flawed, but are working to overcome their problems. I've liked both characters since they were introduced in the first book. Their growth since the first book just makes we want to root for them more. My rating: 5 Stars.
