Down a Dark Road

In this electrifying new thriller in the New York Times bestselling series, a convicted murderer is on the run and Chief of Police Kate Burkholder must catch him before he strikes again.

Eight years ago Joseph King was convicted of murdering his wife and sentenced to life in prison. He was a "fallen" Amish man and, according to local law enforcement, a known drug user with a violent temper. Now King has escaped, and he’s headed for Painters Mill.

News of a murderer on the loose travels like wildfire and putting Chief of Police Kate Burkholder and her team of officers on edge. A nightmare scenario becomes reality when King shows up with a gun and kidnaps his five children from their Amish uncle’s house. He’s armed and desperate with nothing left to lose.

Fearing for the safety of the children, Kate leaps into action, but her frantic search for a killer leads her into an ambush. When King releases her unharmed, asking her to prove his innocence, she begins to wonder whether the police are hiding something, and she embarks on her own investigation to discover the truth.


My Review


This is the first time in a long while where I felt like I got a good glimpse into Kate's life before she left. I was excited for this. Then there is Kate's lover, John, who I had grown to love as much as Kate. They work well together both in the field and in their personal life.

The author does not slowly build up in this story. Right from the gate, the story picks up and does not slow down. I really enjoy this as it keeps the story moving. Not that I have had a problem reading any of the books in this series. I am a life time fan.

As usual, there was so twists. Yet, I do have to point out someone that was a star in my eyes in this book and that is Mona. She works with Kate but not as an investigator (yet). She showed some great skills in finding out information and helping Kate. Oh, and there is a shoot out scene towards the end of the story. Down a Dark Road will have you on the edge of your seat with engaging characters and a strong storyline.
