Noah Kline, a 17-year old Amish boy, is walking home after spending the evening with his English girlfriend when he’s deliberately and viciously struck by a car and left in a field. When he’s discovered the next day, Police Chief Kate Burkholder doesn’t know if it’s a simple hit and run or something more.
I have to now admit that the short stories in this series have become favorites. In just a short amount of time we get the crime, array of suspects, the procedurals to solve the case and an exciting resolution. That’s hard to do well in a full length novel yet it’s done so compellingly here. I wasn’t certain about the whodunit until the real, which coincided with the discovery of key clues. Since more details would be spoilerish, I’ll just stop there. Listening to the story added to my enjoyment as the narrator is my voice of the series in such a good way. Nice little mystery with a strong theme to add to the mix.
