I was interested by the book's description and looking forward to the setting in an Amish community. However the lengthy descriptions of Chief Burkholder's brooding about her conflicted feelings about the Amish community got in the way of the story line.Hard to imagine her in directing the work of a police department --- even a small one. I think some judicious editing would have helped this book because, basically the story is a good one with some good plot twists.

Would you try another book from Linda Castillo and/or Kathleen McInerney?
Good story bad narrating. Her voice when she was doing the male characters gave me the creeps.
What did you like best about this story?
I love Amish stories. Since this was a thriller made it all the better.
Do you think Breaking Silence needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Yes!!!! But get a different narrator.

Any additional comments?
Amish life and detective work make this an interesting mystery. Kathleen McInerney's reading made Linda Castillo's story come to life.
Police Chief Kate Burkholder is called to an accident on a peaceful Amish farm. Two parents and an Uncle are dead in tragic circumstances. Four children are left as orphans.
But in the course of the autopsies, the coroner discovers that all is not what it seems. One of the victims suffered a head wound before death—murder was involved.
State agent John Tomasetti works with Kate to search for murder.
This is the third Kate Burkholder book and links to the previous ones. However, it can be enjoyed as a standalone book just as well.
