The victims appear to be an unremarkable family until secrets are revealed. The Amish lifestyle creates an interesting juxtaposition with the police procedures, examples of Kate's past and present. The characters are interesting and are becoming more developed. Besides the mystery there is also a bit of romance as tentative steps are taken towards a possible relationship.The complex strands of the story come together in an exciting climax.
