AMONG THE WICKED
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.
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.
Working deep under
cover, Kate infiltrates the mysterious community only to unearth a world
built on secrets, a series of shocking crimes, and she soon finds
herself trapped in a fight for her life.
