Book Review

There has been a huge trend of Amish books lately arriving in my mailbox.    I thought that was what The Silent Order was as well.    Instead this a suspense filled book that is truly one of my favorites to read.  

The time period is the Prohibition where obviously the making of illegal liquor is a huge problem.     Where you have illegal liquor, you have the mafia and corrupt police officers.     Detective Wells takes on the assignment to figure out who those corrupt police officers are and hides out in the Amish community as his cover.   He winds out discovering a lot more while he is hiding out there than just those behind an illegal liquor problem.    

Lots of suspense, unexpected twists and turns and romance!    What else do you need for a great book?
