When a young Amish boy, travelling with his mother, witnesses a murder at railway station, Detective John Book realises the perpetrators were corrupt policemen. To protect the boy, Book returns with them to their Amish community, where he must adjust to their strict lifestyle and to his growing feelings for the boy’s mother.
A back-of-beyond thriller from Weir, who turns his sharp eye incisively on America's cosy heartland.
