Some secrets are too terrible to reveal ...Some crimes are too unspeakable to solve ...Painter's Creek, Ohio may be a sleepy, rural town with both Amish and 'English' residents, but it's also the place where a series of brutal murders shattered the lives of an entire community over a decade ago.
When the killing stopped, it left in its aftermath a sense of fragility, and for the young Amish girl, Katie Burkholder, a realization that she didn't belong.
Now, 15 years, two dead parents and a wealth of experience later, Katie has been asked to return as Chief of Police.

Katie is certain she has come to terms with the past.
Until the first body of a slaughtered young woman is found in a pristine, snowy field...
