AVAILABLE JUNE 18, 2013:
HER LAST BREATH
A rainy night, an Amish father returning home with his three children, a
speeding car hurtling toward them out of nowhere.
What at first appears to be a tragic, but routine accident becomes
personal for Chief of Police Kate Burkholder when she discovers that the
victims are the husband and children of her childhood friend, Mattie.
The Amish woman's youngest son clings to life in the intensive care wing
of a hospital, unable to communicate, and he may be the only one who
knows what happened. As Kate delves into the case, she comes face to
face with her Amish past and memories of growing up with Mattie, an
extraordinary beauty whom trouble has always followed. The investigation
takes on a more sinister cast as evidence emerges that nothing about the
crash was accidental.
Desperate for answers, Kate begins to suspect she's not looking for a
reckless drunk who fled the scene of a brutal hit and run, but instead
she finds herself on the trail of a stone cold killer living amid the
residents of Painters Mill. It is a search that takes her on a chilling
journey into the darkest reaches of the human heart and makes her
question everything she has ever believed about the Amish culture into
which she was born.
