Among The Wicked Book Tour Stop

We don’t get a lot of author-related activities in my neck of the woods, so one of my favorite events every year is Linda Castillo’s book tour. Her Kate Burkholder series is set in a fictional town a couple counties away from where I live (and the county next to where I grew up) so her book tour always involves a couple of Ohio stops. She spoke about her journey as an author, how she researches her novels, and answered many questions from the audience. She’s so nice and she has a great sense of humor. I definitely recommend you read her books and try to catch her if she ever comes to your area.

Among the Wicked
is the 8th book in the Kate Burkholder series, which features Kate as a formerly Amish police chief in a small town in Amish country. Here’s an official synopsis from Good Reads:

Chief of Police Kate Burkholder is called upon by the sheriff’s department in rural, upstate New York to assist on a developing situation that involves a reclusive Amish settlement and the death of a young girl. Unable to penetrate the wall of silence between the Amish and “English” communities, the sheriff asks Kate to travel to New York, pose as an Amish woman, and infiltrate the community.

Kate’s long time love interest, State Agent John Tomasetti, is dead set against her taking on such an unorthodox assignment, knowing she’ll have limited communication – and even less in the way of backup. But Kate can’t turn her back, especially when the rumor mill boils with disturbing accounts of children in danger. She travels to New York where she’s briefed and assumes her new identity as a lone widow seeking a new life.

Kate infiltrates the community and goes deep under cover. In the coming days, she unearths a world built on secrets, a series of shocking crimes, and herself, alone… trapped in a fight for her life.

  1. Great pic 😀 I wanted to read the first in the series because I saw that there was a movie… it’s in my TBR pile!

  2. Great picture!!! This is so cool. I have only read one of her books, many years ago, but it was really good. It’s awesome that you got to meet her!
