Two years ago, Joseph King was convicted of murdering his wife and sentenced to life in prison.
He was a “fallen” Amish man and a known drug user with a violent temper.
Now King has escaped, and he’s headed for Painters Mill.
News of a murderer on the loose travels like wildfire…
Putting Chief of Police Kate Burkholder and her team of officers on edge.
But this is personal for Kate.
She grew up with Joseph King. As a thirteen-year-old Amish girl, she’d worshiped the ground he walked on.
She could never have imagined the nightmare scenario that becomes reality when King shows up with a gun and takes his five children hostage at their Amish uncle’s farm.
Armed and desperate, he has nothing left to lose.
Fearing for the safety of the children, Kate makes contact with King only to find herself trapped with a killer.
Or is he?
All King asks of her is to help him prove his innocence—and he releases her unharmed.
Kate is skeptical…
But when the facts and the evidence don’t align, she begins to wonder who she should trust.
