Outsider

A Novel of Suspense

Kate Burkholder: Book #12
By Linda Castillo
Narrated by Kathleen McInerney / 9 hours 37 minutes
Bookseller recommendation

Outsider

“The latest in the Kate Burkholder series, Outsider, is a terrific release. When police chief Burkholder's long-lost friend and fellow cop, Gina Colorosa, exposes corruption in her home precinct, both women find themselves on the wrong side of police weapons. A member of the Amish community in Burkholder's town finds Colorosa bleeding and nearly frozen in her vehicle in a snowdrift, news that quickly reaches Burkholder and puts her and the Amish family at grave risk. This narrative is especially poignant in today's times when reports of the Amish protesting in support of the Black Lives Matter movement have reminded the nation that there is more to these intensely private communities than meets the eye.”

Linda Castillo follows her instant New York Times bestseller, Shamed, with Outsider, an electrifying thriller about a woman on the run hiding among the Amish.

While enjoying a sleigh ride with his children, Amish widower Adam Lengacher discovers a car stuck in a snowdrift and an unconscious woman inside. He calls upon Chief of Police Kate Burkholder for help, and she is surprised to recognize the driver: fellow cop and her former friend, Gina Colorosa.

Years before, Kate and Gina were best friends at the police academy and patrol officers in Columbus, but time and distance have taken them down two very different paths. Now, Gina reveals a shocking story of betrayal and revenge that has forced her to run for her life. She’s desperate for protection, and the only person she can trust is Kate—but can Kate trust her? Or will Gina’s dark past put them all in danger?

As a blizzard bears down on Painters Mill, Kate helps Gina go into hiding on Adam’s farm. While the tough-skinned Gina struggles to adjust to the Amish lifestyle, Kate and state agent John Tomasetti delve into the incident that caused Gina to flee. But as Kate gets closer to the truth, a killer lies in wait. When violence strikes, she must confront a devastating truth that changes everything she thought she knew not only about friendship, but the institution to which she's devoted her life.

Praise for Kathleen McInerney as Kate Burkholder:

"McInerney's masterly technique makes aural sense of the plain and kind Amish people bewildered by the violence, thuggery, and corruption that have come among them. McInerney's characters are alive, all human and believable." — AudioFile Magazine on Among the Wicked

"Kathleen McInerney does an excellent job of portraying this diverse cast, especially the Amish, who she instills with a shy, quiet dignity, and she handles the Pennsylvania Dutch language with the ease of a native." — Publishers Weekly on Pray for Silence
