This is a great addition to this series about the Amish and Kate Burkholder, police chief. She meets her a childhood friend who has escaped from prison, after being convicted of the murder of his wife. The story that follows shows her friend in a bad light with tales of drugs , drunkness and spousal abuse that appears to have lead to the murder of his wife. With only his word and a convincing story by his five year old daughter, she moves down the road of discovery trying to clear his name. Good story well developed until the very end.
