Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
'Sworn to Silence' is set in a township that has 2 societies, one Amish, and one 'English'. Katie is the chief of police, but was born and raised Amish, before rejecting the lifestyle and faith, and becoming 'English'. She has no contact with the Amish - not even her brother and sister - other than in a professional way, as she turned her back on everything that they believe in. Katie has had to endure a lot of professional enmity, due to the fact that she is a young woman, and doing what is considered to be a 'mans job'. Years earlier, there was a sadistic serial killer who tortured and mutilated woman, before killing them. Then it stopped. Then, one dark snowy night, a young woman's frozen, mutilated body is found, and the whole case starts again. Katie has reason to believe that it cannot be the same killer, but the case is identical to the ones in the past. More bodies are found, special agents are called in, and the case is taken out of Katie's hands. However, secrets and lies have a way of catching up with us, and Katie is going to have to face up to hers in order to bring this case to it's conclusion. This is a highly-charged, gripping book, immensely readable, dark and compelling. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and would highly recommend it.
