"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)

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. ( )

This Kate Burkholder story was a little different than her normal routine of crime she gets caught up. This story has more of Kate’s past and how she got to where she got. She has a history from when she was in the police academy and someone from her past unexpectedly shows up and needs her help.

Kate gets a call from an Amish widow. He has found a woman who has almost dead in a snowbank. She is asking for Kate personally and says she is a police officer. Can Kate come see what she wants, as she won’t talk to Adam really… Kate heads towards Adam’s house in the midst of a blizzard that is bearing down on the small town. Gina is the last person Kate could have ever imagined showing up.

Although Gina is being quite guarded Kate knows something is going on. She wrecked her truck into a ditch, seems scared and on edge, and has a gun shot wound that she at first would not admit she had. What did Gina get her self into, and what is she doing out here asking for Kate’s help? But can Kate help her, or is this bigger than Kate as well. Along with Gina’s appearance, a lot of their past comes coming back and old memories are shared – good and bad.

I enjoyed reading more background on Kate and her time after she left the Amish as well as how she got connected to become a police officer. As most of her books, this can be read as a stand alone but reading the others gives a lot more information on the characters background and pasts that are mentioned throughout the story. ( )

A fantastic installment with good suspense. I really like "Outsider" as the plot is different from previous books. It's a nice change yet still has Amish feel that fans love. Also, we get to know more about eighteen year old Kate when she left the Amish life and started a new one in the big city, met her first English friend and the backstory on how she became a cop. ( )

The Kate Burkholder series is one of my favorites. I eagerly await each book in this series and hide myself away with a cup of tea and my cat to binge read it immediately. Covid19 and my insane work schedule made me have to wait awhile for my binge-session...but once I got a free evening, I was glued to my kindle savoring every single word of this book!

The Outsider is the 12th book in the series. It's best to read the books in order. There's a lot of background and character development that would be missed by reading out of order, in my opinion.

The basics: Kate Burkholder grew up Amish in Painters Mill. After a horrific ordeal as a teenager, she left the faith and later became a police officer. Then she returned to Painters Mill as the area Police Chief. In this newest book, her past in training and as an officer in Columbus, OH come back to haunt her. A fellow officer and friend shows up in Painters Mill, but she's wanted for killing an officer in Columbus. Kate tries to investigate the incident, but meets with warnings and stonewalling, slowly revealing possible police corruption.

I am never disappointed by this series. Great plot, awesome suspense and action, plus interesting character development. I enjoyed this book! I can't wait for the next novel or short story in this series!

**I voluntarily read a review copy of this book from St. Martin's Press. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.**

My local library added the audio book version of this newest Kate Burkholder novel in the last few days, so I decided to give this book a second read. I enjoy the audio books of this series and even though I knew the plot I enjoy having the books read to me!

As usual, Kathleen McInerney does a great job of narrating! She has a pleasant voice, reads at a nice pace and voices the characters with skill. The audio is just a bit over 9.5 hours long.....an enjoyable weekend listen while I got my chores and baking done!

Can't wait for the next book in this series! It's one of my favorites! ( )
