Whiskers of the Lion

Sheriff Bruce Robertson is charged with finding Fannie Helmuth, a young Amish woman who is hiding from a murderous drug ring.  Wrestling with a recurring childhood nightmare, Robertson finds himself torn between allegiance to the legal system he upholds and the beliefs of the Amish people he has sworn to protect.

From Publishers Weekly, January 2015: “In [his] absorbing ninth mystery set in Holmes County, Ohio . . . Gaus once again sensitively explores the awkward melding of traditional Amish culture and modern social problems.”
