A Gathering of Secrets

A deadly fire exposes the dark side of Amish life in this harrowing new thriller in the New York Times bestselling series.

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

I have really enjoyed getting to know and see Kate in action. I like her don't really feel like an outsider. Thus the reason, it saddens me to report that this book did not hit me in all the right spots this time. In fact, it surprised me a bit as I have enjoyed these books so much. However, it was not Kate that was the problem but the story itself. There was no interest in the characters and thus the story was uninteresting to me.

The last few chapters when Kate solved the case and wrapped it all up in those last few chapters were good. Kate has this way about her that demands respect. Also, she shows why she is one of the best with her intelligence. Here is to the next book in this series that I hope will excite me again.
