After a ten-year-old boy disappears from the home of his grandfather – Amish bishop Eli Miller – the religious leader, who had shunned the boy’s father ten years earlier, struggles to find the courage to engage outsiders in the hunt for his grandson. When the father is found murdered, Sheriff Bruce Robertson takes up the investigation, only to discover truths that the Bishop would prefer to leave undisturbed.  This new edition of P.L. Gaus’s acclaimed first mystery from Ohio University Press contains much new material: an interview with the author, a map and travel guide written by the author, and questions for reading groups and book clubs to consider.
