Description

An extraordinarily beautiful Amish woman, a dangerous femme fatale, is the central figure in Linda Castillo's Her Last Breath, a story that reveals a dark side of Painters Mill and its seemingly perfect Amish world.A rainy night, an Amish father returning home with his three children, a speeding car hurtling toward them out of nowhere.What at first seems like a tragic, but routine car accident suddenly takes on a more sinister cast as evidence emerges that nothing about the crash is accidental. But who would want to kill an Amish deacon and two of his children? He leaves behind a grieving widow and a young boy who clings to life in the intensive care wing of a hospital, unable to communicate. He may be the only one who knows what happened that night. Desperate to find out who killed her best friend's husband and why, Kate begins to suspect she is not looking for a reckless drunk, but instead is on the trail of a cold blooded killer amid the residents of Painter's Mill. It is a search that takes her on a chilling journey into the darkest reaches of the human heart and makes her question everything she has ever believed about the Amish culture into which she was born. "Bestseller Castillo's fifth Amish thriller featuring Painters Mill, Ohio, police chief Katie Burkholder (after 2012's Gone Missing) is a stunner... Castillo once again displays her mastery of edge-of-your seat suspense." – Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

        Starred review from April 29, 2013
        Bestseller Castillo’s fifth Amish thriller featuring Painters Mill, Ohio, police chief Katie Burkholder (after 2012’s Gone Missing) is a stunner. In the prologue a hit-and-run driver crashes into the buggy of Paul Borntrager, killing him and two of his children and seriously injuring a third child. Katie, who was a good friend of Paul’s wife, Mattie, before Katie left the Plain Life, now has to inform Mattie about the accident. An examination of the scene provides clues that the crash may have been deliberate, and more police work strongly suggests that it was premeditated murder. Meanwhile, kids discover human bones in an abandoned grain elevator—bones that have a connection to Katie’s past. Those twin dramas play out, each in surprising fashion, as the search for the hit-and-run vehicle and the killer continue. Castillo once again displays her mastery of edge-of-your seat suspense. Author tour. Announced first printing of 100,000. Agent: Nancy Yost, Nancy Yost Literary Agency

        Kate Burkholder is the chief of police in Painters Mill, OH. She grew up in the Amish community there but left the congregation as a young woman. The husband of Kate's best childhood friend, Mattie, and two of her three children are killed in their buggy by a hit-and-run driver, and Kate comes to believe that it was deliberate murder. The story is fast-paced, the setting is unique and fascinating, and the characters are believable and engaging. Reader Kathleen McInerney handles a wide range of characters and accents with ease. VERDICT This is sure to be popular. Recommended. ["In her fifth installment (after Gone Missing), Castillo combines the simple Amish lifestyle with dizzying hairpin twists and turns, and the result is a mind-blowing read that will keep her fans and mystery readers engrossed," read the review of the Minotaur: St. Martin's hc, LJ 6/1/13.]--Kristen L. Smith, Loras Coll. Lib., Dubuque, IA
