Evil lurks in Amish Country—and detective Elizabeth Harris is there to smoke it out in the new novel from the author of Kingdom Come.
By solving the murders of two local girls, Elizabeth has gained some trust in the Amish community. So, she’s the first person its members turn to when a fast and fatal illness takes hold among the Amish in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, many believe that the sickness stems from a curse placed by a practitioner of old-world folk magic. But Elizabeth doesn’t believe in curses, and when an entire Amish family is found dead, she begins to suspect something far more sinister.
As the CDC is called in to investigate, customers of a Philadelphia farmers market selling Amish goods start dying. Amid rapidly escalating panic, Elizabeth must peel away layers of superstition and fear to save the livelihood—and lives—of an entire community. Because what has happened isn’t an accident of nature or an act of God, it’s the handiwork of someone who has only just begun to kill.
