The Dead Will Tell

Linda Castillo. Minotaur, $25.99 (320p) ISBN 978-1-250-02957-7
In the prologue, set in Painters Mill, Ohio, in 1979, of bestseller Castillo’s suspenseful sixth Amish thriller (after 2013’s Her Last Breath), 14-year-old Billy Hochstetler survives a brutal attack that kills his father and three siblings; his mother disappears. In present-day Painter’s Mill, police chief Kate Burkholder investigates the apparent suicide of a respectable middle-aged man found hanging in his barn, a small wooden Amish doll stuffed into his mouth. When three other pillars of the community report threatening notes, two of them end up dead, adorned with a similar Amish doll souvenir. Is there a connection to the decades-old tragedy? What’s the relationship between these new victims? And could Billy be the avenger? All the while, Kate struggles with boyfriend John Tomasetti’s anguish over developments in the prosecution of the murderers of his wife and children some years ago. Outwardly calm and thorough as always, the chief handles it all. Author tour. Agent: Nancy Yost, Nancy Yost Literary Agency. (July)
