"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. Chief of Police Kate Burkholder's past comes back to haunt her when she receives a call from Amish widower Adam Lengacher. While enjoying a sleigh ride with his children, he discovered a car stuck in a snowdrift and an unconscious woman inside. Kate arrives at his farm and is shocked to discover the driver is a woman she hasn't seen in ten years: fellow cop Gina Colorosa. Ten years ago, Kate and Gina were best friends at the police academy, graduating together as rookies with the Columbus Division of Police. But the reunion takes an ominous turn when Kate learns Gina is wanted for killing an undercover officer. Gina claims she's innocent, that she was framed by corrupt officers who want her gone because she was about to turn them in for wrongdoing. Kate calls upon state agent John Tomasetti for help and with a blizzard bearing down, they delve into the incident. But no one wants to talk about what happened the night Gina allegedly gunned down a fellow cop. Even Tomasetti is stonewalled, his superior telling him in no uncertain terms to back off. With whisperings of corruption and the threat of rogue cops seeking revenge, Kate and Gina hunker down at Adam Lengacher's farm. As Kate gets closer to the truth, a killer lies in wait. When violence strikes, Kate must confront a reality that changes everything she thought she knew not only about friendship, but the institution to which she's devoted her life"--… (mais)

Adam Lengacher, ein verwitweter amischer Familienvater, ist mit seinen Kindern unterwegs, als er einen Wagen entdeckt, der von der Straße abgekommen ist und im Schnee feststeckt. Er befreit die halberfrorene Frau und nimmt sie mit nach Hause. Die Frau will weder ins Krankenhaus, noch dass Adam die Polizei holt. Ab er sie will unbedingt mit Kate Burkholder sprechen. Kate erkennt ihre ehemalige Kollegin Gina Colorosa sofort. Doch als Gina ihr erzählt, dass sie unter Nordverdacht steht und auf der Flucht ist, weil sie Angst vor ihren Kollegen hat, weiß Kate nicht, ob sie Gina vertrauen kann. Gina behauptet, dass die Kollegen korrupt sind und sie nun töten wollen, weil Gina das aufdecken wollte. Wegen des Schneesturms können sie nicht von der Farm weg. Doch Man ist Gina schon auf der Spur.
Ich mag diese Reihe um Kate Burkholder, die Polizeichefin des kleinen Orts Painters Mill in Ohio ist. Dies ist bereits der elfte Band der Reihe. Der Schreibstil von Linda Castillo ist gut und flüssig zu lesen. Die Autorin schafft es, den Leser von Anfang an zu packen. Außerdem erhält man einen Einblick in das Leben der Amischen.
Kate Burkholder hat einst zu den Amischen gehört, bis sie ihre Familie und die Gemeinde Verlassen hat. Anfangs hat ihr Gina Colorosa geholfen und Selbstvertrauen gegeben. Doch dann haben sich die beiden aus den Augen verloren. Doch nun hat Gina niemanden, an den sie sich wenden könnte – nur Kate. Aber Kate zweifelt. Sie spannt ihren Lebensgefährten John Tomasetti ein, der seine Kontakte nutzt, um herauszufinden, was in Columbus wirklich läuft. Während sie der Wahrheit langsam näherkommen, nähert sich aber auch schon ein Mörder, der Gina töten soll.
Es ist ein ziemlich persönlicher Fall für Kate Burkholder und sie kann aufgrund der Wetterkapriolen nicht viel unternehmen, daher ist sie auf Johns Unterstützung angewiesen. Es ist eigentlich von Anfang an klar, was hinter allem steckt, dennoch ist es erschreckend, welche Abgründe die Menschen antreiben.
Auch dieser neue Fall für Kate Burkholder ist wieder sehr spannend. ( )

Fleeing Columbus in a blizzard, Kate's former roommate and now corrupt vice squad policewoman Gina Colorosa finds herself taking refuge on an Amish farm near Painters Mill. A warrant exists for her arrest. Kate distrusts Gina but knows the possibility exists Gina's account could be true so she calls upon Tomasetti with the BCI to help investigate Gina's claims. Gina insists the men want her dead. Will Tomasetti be able to resolve it before the men find Gina endangering the lives of Kate, the Amish man hosting her, and his two children? I am not a huge fan of the thriller genre, and this definitely leans toward it, but this is an interesting case. The blizzard creates an edgy atmosphere. ( )

I love this series and spending the day with Kate. She's a good person, not a holier than thou type, just good all the way through. The atmosphere is always tense and this book is no exception. It's always a great pleasure to sit down with a Kate Burkholder book and read the day away. Thank you Linda Castillo for being an amazing author! ( )

I'm a fan of Kate Burkholder and John Tomasetti. This did not disappoint me. ( )

Kind of like Peter Weir's movie "Witness" without Harrison Ford in a Gary Cooper hat. Although the narrative arc is different, it still has the same theme - an outsider comes to an Amish community in the wake of a violent crime and, ultimately, brings that violence to the community. In this case, it's a tough female, city vice cop.

Although the book is part of series, this is the first I've read and works well as a stand alone. In fact, I liked it much more than I thought I would. Fast pacing, believable characters and excellent integration of the Amish community into the story line.

Good narrator.

I'm looking forward to reading more of the Kate Burkholder series. ( )
