Description
After a ten-year-old boy disappears from his home, an Amish bishop realizes that his flock is in danger, in this debut Amish-Country mystery. With nowhere else to turn, he decides to invite three outsiders ("the English," as the Amish farmers call them) into their traditionally closed society to find the boy. These three—a college professor, a local pastor, and the county sheriff—are the only ones in the pastoral Ohio county who possess the instincts and understanding to investigate a case that could affect both communities. P.L. Gaus's 1999 novel is the first in a "fascinating multicultural mystery" series (Booklist), exploring the moral and legal conundrums of Professor Michael Branden, Sheriff Bruce Robertson, and Pastor Cal Troyer as they set out to uncover truths hidden away in their otherwise quiet corner of the world. Along the way, Gaus paints a unique portrait of a culture making its way side by side with contemporary American life.
