Synopsis

With its peaceful, hardworking Amish population, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, is a rural paradise. But former NYPD homicide detective Elizabeth Harris knows that evil lurks there—it’s just easier to hide...

Because what has happened isn’t an accident of nature or an act of God, it’s the handiwork of someone who has only just begun to kill...
