Everyone in Painters Mill knows the abandoned Hochstetler farm is haunted. But only a handful of the residents remember the terrible secrets lost in the muted/hushed whispers of time—and now death is stalking them, seemingly from the grave.

 On a late-night shift, Chief of Police Kate Burkholder is called to the scene of an apparent suicide—an old man found hanging from the rafters in his dilapidated barn. But evidence quickly points to murder and Kate finds herself chasing a singularly difficult and elusive trail of evidence that somehow points back to the tragedy of that long ago incident. Meanwhile, Kate has moved in with state agent John Tomasetti and for the first time in so long, they're both happy; a bliss quickly shattered when one of the men responsible for the murders of Tomasetti’s family four years ago is found not guilty, and walks away a free man. Will Tomasetti be pulled back to his own haunted past?

When a second man is found dead—also seemingly by his own hand—Kate discovers a link in the case that sends the investigation in a direction no one could imagine and revealing the horrifying truth of what really happened that terrible night thirty-five years ago, when an Amish father and his four children perished—and his young wife disappeared without a trace.

And, as Kate knows—the past never truly dies . . . in The Dead Will Tell by Linda Castillo

Mehr über den Autor

Linda Castillo wurde in Dayton/Ohio geboren und arbeitete lange Jahre als Finanzmanagerin, bevor sie sich der Schriftstellerei zuwandte. Ihre Thriller, die in einer Amisch-Gemeinde in Ohio spielen, sind ein internationaler Erfolg, in über 30 Ländern werden ihre Thriller mit Polizeichefin Kate Burkholder sehnsüchtig erwartet und verschlungen. Alle Bände in dieser Reihe stehen in Deutschland regelmäßig wochenlang auf der Spiegel-Bestsellerliste. Die Autorin lebt mit ihrem Mann in Texas.
Ein Ausflug ins Amisch-Country in Ohio und eine 200 Jahre alte Farm waren der Auslöser für die Kate-Burkholder-Serie. Als Linda Castillo in dieser Stille die Schneeflocken fallen hören konnte und dann wie aus dem Nichts plötzlich ein Amisch-Buggy, also eine Pferdekutsche, auftauchte, war das der Moment, in dem ihr klar wurde, dass sie über diese Gegend und diese Menschen schreiben wollte.
Sie hat mittlerweile so viele gute Kontakte zu den Amischen, dass sie nicht nur wertvolle Tipps von ihnen erhält, sondern auch zu Familien nach Hause eingeladen wird. Bei ihren Schilderungen geht es ihr besonders darum, eine realistische Welt zu schildern und kein stereotypes Bild dieser einzig-
artigen Kultur zu zeigen. Aber auch die Arbeit einer Ermittlerin im Polizeidienst ist ihr nicht fremd. Linda Castillo hat zwei Polizeidiplome, für die sie jeweils zwölfwöchige Lehrgänge in allen Bereichen der Polizeiarbeit absolvieren musste. Für ihren letzten Kriminalfall "Teuflisches Spiel" kam ihr die zündende Idee, als sie selbst einen Buggy lenken durfte und sich dabei der unmittelbaren Gefährdung durch die Automobile der ,Englischen' ausgesetzt sah. Nach eigenen Aussagen arbeitet Linda Castillo bereits wieder an einem neuen Roman mit Ermittlerin Kate Burkholder.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Creepy Good! 25. April 2014
Von Julie Merilatt - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
The Kate Burkholder series just keeps getting better! A string of murders is somehow connected to a horrific thirty-five year old unsolved crime. Could the victims be seeking revenge? I loved the ghost story element in this book (although I quickly realized that ghosts don't leave footprints). Every time I thought I had things figured out, there were twist and turns in the plot that completely surprised me.

There is unrest between Kate and Tomasetti that added some angst to the overall story, but the outcome of their conflict is so worth it. In addition to the gruesome murders both past and present, Painters Mill is besieged by a deluge, and the cold and damp of the ceaseless rain adds a gloomy element to the story. The conclusion of the novel was far more twisted than I could have predicted and getting there was ever so much fun.

5.0 von 5 Sternen *****ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!******* 15. Mai 2014

Linda Castillo continues to meet her readers' high expectations in this latest installment of the Kate Burkholder series. The beloved heroine returns, called to the scene of what is initially thought to be a suicide...but quickly is concluded to be something else entirely. The death of a second man leads Kate to look for connections between the two...and she finds them. Her investigation takes her back the heinous deaths of an Amish family. How is it all connected? And who is responsible? Someone is seeking vengeance for old tragedies and injustice....and eventually we will all pay.

A complete and utter page turner........with the requisite twist that we have come to anticipate from Castillo. The inability of the reader to put it down makes the novel and incredibly quick read....not to be missed!!

Von Jim Munchel - Veröffentlicht auf

By Linda Castillo

Here is the best thriller scoop I can give anyone who loves the literary pursuit of solving crimes. The list for fictional crime writers is currently vast and extremely crowded. When it comes to the ladies of the genre there are a few non-negotiable. In no particular order the crème de la crème is Laura Lippman, Lisa Unger, Karin Slaughter and Linda Castillo. Dark, gritty (What the hell does gritty actually mean when describing a noir) and certifiably addictive. The for mentioned ladies cast a spell on their readers will words rather than incantations.

THE DEAD WILL TELL is the latest Kate Burkholder thriller set in the world of the Amish. What began with SWORN TO SILENCE a few years ago and I must tell this quick story. I had a copy of SWORN TO SILENCE in my carry on and I was flying to Denver, Colorado for a social visit. For some unknown reason I was bumped from my flight and I could not get another one for six grueling hours. I was so glad I had Kate Burkholder to keep me company. I had the entire novel finished before my new flight left the runway. Of course, I had nothing to read during my flight. That is an example of a sure fire storyteller.

Thirty-five years ago the night was shattered by cries of torment in the town of Painters Mill, Ohio. An Amish family is robbed at gunpoint, the father is murdered, and the house ablaze and four small children perish. The sobbing mother is taken by masked now killers and never seen ago. The only survivor is a fourteen year old boy who escaped trying to save his siblings. The fire destroys the farm and leaves behind the ashes of an innocent family scattered to the quiet Ohio wind.

Secrets lay dormant for many years until the serene town of Painters Mill erupts with the brutal hanging of one of the perpetrators from that night many years ago. Soon death visits the town again with another murder of a prominent citizen plagued by dreams of guilt from that night. Has a ghost returned to exact vengeance on those doomed to suffer for their sins? It is up to the ingenious mind of head of police Kate Burkholder to gather all the information to solve the murders. She is met with much unkindness and distrust from the Amish in the community since she abdicated from the Amish faith and ways many years before.

Ms. Castillo cannot write these thrillers fast enough for me. The pages actually fly ( I kid you not) once you open her books. Allow yourself as a reader to be drawn into the world of the innocent and not so innocent.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE PAST EVENTUALLY COMES BACK TO BITE YOU! 22. Mai 2014
Von Haze Blackmon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I have to say this is my favorite book series and I really wish they would make a television series out of it, instead of just one movie(so far) starring Neve Campbell. In The Dead Will Tell the murders of an Amish family thirty-some years ago comes back to haunt(literally) the perpetrators in the present and someone exacts revenge on them in gruesome ways. This was a very tense, quick, and thrilling read. It will keep you guessing until the end. John Tomasetti's darker side comes to light in The Dead Will Tell and it creates plenty of tension between him and Kate Burkholder. And as always, the Amish way of life is presented realistically and is very interesting.

I don't think The Dead Will Tell is the best in the series, but it is still excellent and a fantastic continuation of a series that I hope goes on for many more books. This is that type of series where you may want to sleep because you really need to, but you probably won't because the books are so addicting and you're anxious to see what happens next. The sleep deprivation is worth it.... Great cast of characters(especially Pickles) and many thrilling moments surrounded by Amish life equals a must read novel.... and series!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Grippingly Awesome 10. Juli 2014
Von D. Love - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Wow! Linda delivered a fast-paced and action-filled drama that was both riveting and heart breaking as the story unfolded in front of my eyes. The author has a way with describing a scene with visual effects and dialogues that put me right there in the middle of all the action, rooting for the killer to be exposed. Linda did a great job in keeping me on my toes as to who was behind it all, but then that twist…oh so brilliant, and boy did I totally get immersed in everything that was happening. The side snippets of Kate’s personal life added to the enjoyment of this wonderfully executed tome. This is by far, the best book in this fabulously terrific series and I’m so happy to hear that the author is working on the next book because I can’t wait for my next trip to Painters Mill.
