"Gone Missing" by Linda Castillo is an Amish Thriller

Gone Missing by Linda Castillo is about a police investigation involving several missing Amish teens.  The cops don’t know if they just left on their own or if foul play was involved.  Some disappearances are cold cases but some are recently and they wonder if they are all related.  Talking to the victims’ families is tough because of the Amish’s general reluctance to trust anyone outside their own community.  Kate Burkholder, having grown up Amish, the chief of police for a small Amish community is called in on the case as a consultant and is excited about working again with a State Agent, John Tomasetti, who she really hit it off with. 

This book focuses on parent-teen relationships and is an interesting read because it not only gives some insight into the Amish, but is told from Kate’s perspective and includes both her job as a cop and her personal life as a woman.  The last 67 pages are full of suspense and action that made me keep turning the pages.  The ending is very unsettling and quite shocking!  This book has some foul language but it is much less than some of her other books I’ve read and was easy to overlook.  This is a good mystery!

Other books I liked by Linda CastilloSworn to Silence (gruesome), Pray for Silence (very good) and Breaking Silence (thrilling)

  3. This sounds great. I would enjoy it, I'm sure. I'll have to check the bookshelves at my favorite bookstore to see if I can find it. I've been on a 'Hitler fetish' these days, and the books I've read about this 'weird' man makes me want to read his autobiography "Mein Kampf". Maybe soon.

    Have a glorious day.


Thanks for commenting and happy reading!
