    A fantastic addition to one of my absolute favorite series. Joseph, an Amish father of five, is sent to prison for the murder of his wife. One year later he makes a daring escape to reunite with his children. Soon he crosses paths with his neighbor and childhood friend Kate Burkholder, now the police chief of Painters Mill. He desperately claims his innocence and pleads with her to look into the case and clear his name. A very fast paced book that balances a great police procedural with a behind [...]

    This is one of my favorite series! It is the nineth book in the Kate Burkholder Series. I have read every book in this series. This book was outstanding! Linda Castillo has done it again! Her ability to weave together the Amish life and "Englischers" into an interesting story and then throw a murder mystery in the midst is superb. I love the characters in this series, especially Kate Burkholder. In this book the characters come to life, you actually care what happens to them. The author evokes d [...]

    EXCERPT: I haven’t seen or heard from Joseph King in twenty years, but I heard the stories. Not only from the Amish, but from law enforcement as well. Evidently, King was a troubled man with a marriage on the rocks, a litter of kids he didn’t want, and a loose interpretation of his marital vows.I vividly recall the day I learned his wife had been found dead—and Joseph was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. I couldn’t believe the kid I’d known—the one with the toothy grin [...]

    This author does such a great job of blending the Amish culture with that of our own, or as the Amish say, English. Burkholder, now sheriff, was one Amish, and her family, brother and sister, still belong. This case will take Katie back to her childhood, a time filled with chores, but also a great deal of fun. A man, who she last saw as a boy, will be the focus.I love how this book goes back and forth in time, learning a little more about her past, small glimpses and insights into the Amish way [...]

    3.5 stars, rounded up to 4This is a well done, solid mystery. Kate Burkholder is lapsed Amish, chief of police for a small Ohio town. In this book, a childhood friend who had been convicted of murdering his wife escapes from prison and returns for his children. Kate has gone to the house where the children are and ends up losing her gun and being taken hostage by the man. He later releases her when she promises to investigate his claim of innocence. There is a nice balance between story and char [...]

    Another great book in the Kate Burkholder series. I enjoy this series for many reasons but a primary reason is that the author always keeps the action going, even in the paperwork parts of the investigation, the forward momentum is still there. I don't feel like I have to slog through lengthy descriptions to get back to the action. The characters and setting are developed in a succinct and relevant manner. Not much of the supporting characters in this installment, but that is okay as this is ver [...]

    Down a Dark Road is #9 and another great addition to the Kate Burkholder series. I like how Castillo weaves the Amish culture into all of the novels with Kate having grown up in an Amish family and leaving that lifestyle as an adult. She knows how they think and can get them talking. This is one of my favorites because it hits close to home for Kate Burkholder. She straddles the line between personal and professional which makes this an exciting read. Her first crush has been convicted of murder [...]

    Let me get this out of the way first. I criticized a previous Linda Castillo book for glaring editing errors. There’s one in this book, very near the end, that unfortunately broke my concentration during a great scene. Made me look back a couple of pages to check something, and then shake my head. I hate when that happens, but I'm not letting that affect my feelings toward this book. So here we go…I didn't plan on spending all of yesterday reading (and we did manage to go out for lunch), but [...]

    Two “fallen away” Amish adults cross paths in Down a Dark Road, Linda Castillo’s ninth mystery novel featuring police chief Kate Burkholder. Kate left her family and the Amish community after her rumspringa, the period when teens are permitted to experience the “English” way of life. That is the time when they can decide whether or not they will remain Amish. Due to some difficult circumstances, Kate chose to leave. She studied and worked hard, and now she commands a tiny police force [...]

    4.5 chilling starsI have been following this series since 2009. I don’t know anymore how I found this author, but her books have pulled me back year after year. The most fascinating aspect of these novels is the premise and location. I’ve never read anything about the Amish culture before Kate Burkholder. I’m from Germany so I understand some of the Amish that is being used in these books, but sentence structure is often very different and the culture is a world apart to anything I’ve ev [...]

    Disclaimer and an Apology: This book was awarded free through a giveaway and due to unforeseen circumstances I’m only getting back to the novel now, over three months later. I will not abuse the privilege again.★ ★ ★ 1/2When I was a vendor and travelled the country as part of a group of five or six people, two my colleagues enjoyed romance novels.

    This is the 6th book I've read by this author. I love all of Linda Castillo's book and this is no exception. This author does an excellent job of explaining things so you don't have to read the books in order to understand everything. I've always been fascinated with the Amish community and reading these books just makes me want to go visit one day. I want to read more books by Linda Castillo.

    “Down A Dark Road” is the ninth book in Linda Castillo’s Kate Burkholder Series of which I’ve read all but one. (And yes, I really need to do something about that soon!) I eagerly look forward to the release of each of Castillo’s books, so it’s not surprising that I jumped at the chance to review her latest novel. Some book series grow stale overtime, but that is not the case here. The story opens in the now familiar setting of Painters Mill in the heart of Ohio’s Amish country. Ch [...]

    Down a Dark Road is the first book of this series that I have read but I intend to start from #1 and read the whole series. Kate Burkholder is one hell of a cop. In this book, Kate is trying to clear the name of her first crush, Joseph King. He was found guilty of the murder of his wife Naomi and sentenced to life in prison. Kate is notified of his escape from prison and she sets out to find him before anyone else can, to prevent him being killed.She suspects he may be going to where his 5 child [...]

    4.0 StarsAnother entertaining, fast-paced novel in the Kate Burkholder series. The mystery was somewhat guessable, but still an enjoyable reading experience. Sadly, I am now caught up with the most recent publication and have to wait impatiently for the next installment.

    4.5 I almost didn't want to finish this book because now I have to wait for the next one. This is my favorite series and the books just get better and better!I look forward to the next one.Highly recommend!

    “Down a Dark Road” is probably the most emotionally affecting and suspenseful book in the Kate Burkholder series, and then there are the pies! I’ve read every book in Linda Castillo’s series about Painter’s Mill police chief Kate Burkolder and enjoyed them all. They provide a revealing view of the unique challenges of small town policing combined with thrilling plots with surprising twists. What I most appreciate about the series is learning more about the Amish culture. Kate was forme [...]

    I received this book from a Good Reads giveaway which was exciting in itself. It's been 2 years since I won a book so I was excited. I really like the Kate Burkholder series. Kate is the sheriff of Painted Mills, Ohio, right in the middle of Amish country. Kate is a former Amish so her knowledge of the culture and the language is a big help in her investigations. This is #9 in the series and involves her childhood friend, Joseph, who has escaped from prison where he is serving time for murdering [...]

    Wow, this was one of the best Kate Burkholder books yet. I did not want to put it down to go to bed. Linda Castillo has the knack of writing about the Amish and Englischer divide as well as weaving them together living in the same area of Ohio. The plot in this story moved you quickly between past reminiscences and the present.The book opens with Kate getting a call about an escaped convict that might be headed to her area. It is Joseph (Joe) King who used to be her childhood friend and first cr [...]

His five children live in Kate's jurisdiction with their relatives, so she takes a ride out to their farm to make sure all is well. When she stops by the years-old crime scene, she's attacked by Joseph and taken prisoner. During the hostage negotiations Joseph tells Kate he's innocent. That story is supported by his youngest daughter, Sadie, who was [...]

    Please visit mysteryinminutes/revi to read the complete MINM review.Irresistibly atmospheric with the sights, sounds, and mouth-watering aromas of fictional Amish communities in northeastern Ohio, and the not-so-quaint mysterious and murderous happenings that find their way to these, otherwise, sleepy hamlets, Ms. Castillo has outdone herself with this latest installment - which can be read as a standalone - of the recommended Kate Burkholder series.

    I grew up near several Amish communities and know as well as anyone that they're generally about as normal and boring as anyone; they simply belong to a different, more intense religious practice. But there's something about any secretive religious sect that is just fascinating and, when written about in the right way can add a creepy feeling to a good story.Linda Castillo strikes that balance yet again in the latest Kate Burkholder novel. This book was a great ride, from beginning to end.Kate - [...]

    Things get personal in this 9th outing for Sheriff Kate Burkholder as she digs for the truth about the murder an old childhood friend is convicted of, but swears he didn't commit despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.Another wonderful mystery and the interworking of the Amish and non-Amish that no one does as best as Linda Castillo. Highly recommended!

    I've never been disappointed in one of Linda Castillo's Kate Burkholder crime novels. And, even better for Police Chief Burkholder, her small police force has never disappointed. Down a Dark Road is another riveting story in an outstanding series.When Joseph King escapes from Mansfield Correctional Institution in Ohio, Kate doesn't really think he'll end up back in Painters Mill. Her childhood friend was convicted two years earlier of killing his wife, with his five children in the house. But, K [...]
