Everyone in Painters Mill knows the abandoned Hochstetler Farm is haunted. Ghost stories abound, but no one knows what really happened on that terrible night thirty-five years ago when an Amish father and his four children perished, and his young wife disappeared without a trace. When Chief of Police Kate Burkholder is called to the scene of an apparent suicide --- a man is found hanging from the rafters in his barn --- evidence quickly points to murder, and she finds herself following an elusive trail that points back to the tragedy of that long-ago incident. Meanwhile, Kate has moved in with State Agent John Tomasetti, and for the first time in a long time, she is happy. When a second man turns up dead, Kate discovers a link that sends the investigation in a direction no one could imagine and uncovers a horrifying truth that strikes at the very heart of Painters Mill. As Kate draws a bead on a stone-cold killer, a murderer vows to right old wrongs and kill anyone who stands in the way. -- Container.
