In the wooded Amish hill country, a professor at a small college, a local pastor, and the county sheriff are the only ones among the mainstream, or "English," who possess the instincts and skills to work the cases that impact all county residents, no matter their code of conduct or religious creed.
When an Amish boy is kidnapped, a bishop, fearful for the safety of his followers, plunges three outsiders into the traditionally closed society of the "Plain Ones."

- Murder, Kidnapping, Ransom, and faith by Jane on 2/23/2013
Any book you cannot lay down deservea a rating of 5. I thought this book was going one way showing a dark side of the Amish. But it didn't. You like murder, suspense, mystery, then you will want to read this book.
This book covers murder of an Amish person who has left the community. Like all parents, Eli, the Bishop, wants his son to return to the Community and prays he does. The grandson - son of Jonah - has been living with his grandfather. But one day the grandson is kidnapped and there is more to the story than you suspect at first. I won't spoil it by giving any away.
Jonah has been gone 10 years. He is returning home when he is murdered. The investigation will keep you on your seats. Not what you think. Way more.
Ranson, kidnapping, murder, and investigation will keep you reading way into the night. The person who done the murder will be a mystery until clear toward the end. Great read.
