Description
Professor Michael Branden is surprised in his office by the arrival of an Amish man claiming his brother was murdered, in this sixth entry in P.L. Gaus's Amish-Country series. Even as they are discussing his case, a young woman plunges from the top of the school's bell tower. The investigations of these deaths become intertwined as Branden uncovers a rift between two Amish factions—one that favors the use of medicine and participates in a college study of Amish genetic traits, and the other that rejects any outside influence. P.L. Gaus's "fascinating multicultural mystery" series (Booklist) explores 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.

"In Gaus's excellent sixth Ohio Amish mystery (after 2006's A Prayer for the Night), Enos Erb, an Amish farmer, makes an unusual request of Michael Branden, burned-out history professor and amateur sleuth, given that the Amish practice nonviolence and have no use for the justice system of the outside English world.... A convincing plot and credible, sympathetic characters make another winner in this fine regional series."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
