An evil heart / Linda Castillo.

Castillo, Linda, (author.).


On a crisp autumn day in Painters Mill, Chief of Police Kate Burkholder responds to a disturbing call to discover the body of an Amish man who has been violently killed with a crossbow and then abandoned on a dirt road. Aden Karn was only twenty years old, well-liked, and from an upstanding Amish family. Who would commit such a heinous crime against a young man whose life was just beginning? The more Kate gets to know his devastated family and the people who loved him--both English and Amish--the more determined she becomes to solve the case. Aden Karn was funny, hardworking, and looking forward to marrying his kind fiancée, Emily. But as she delves deeper into Karn's past, Kate begins to hear whispers about a darker side to the man. What if Aden Karn wasn't the wholesome young man everyone admired? Or is it possible that these rumors are simply a cruel campaign to blame the victim? Kate pursues every lead with a vengeance, sensing an unspeakable secret no one will broach. All the while, Kate's own wedding day to John Tomasetti draws near. The case spirals out of control when a young Amish woman comes forward with a horrific story that pits Kate against a dangerous and unexpected opponent. When the awful truth is finally uncovered, Kate comes face-to-face with the terrible consequences of a life lived in all the wrong places. -- Provided by publisher.
