Amish country in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, has always been a place of quiet beauty—until a shocking murder shatters the peace, and leaves a troubled detective picking up the pieces…

After her husband is murdered, Detective Elizabeth Harris turns in her NYPD badge and moves back home, hoping that a quiet life in remote Pennsylvania Dutch country will help her overcome the dark memories of her ten years in New York. But when a beautiful, scantily clad “English” girl is found dead in the barn of a prominent Amish family, Elizabeth knows that she’s uncovered an evil that could shake the community to its core.

Elizabeth’s boss is convinced this was the work of an “English,” as outsiders are called in Lancaster County. But Elizabeth isn’t so sure. All she’s missing is an actual lead—until another body is found: this time, a missing Amish girl. Now Elizabeth must track down a killer with deep ties to a community that always protects its own—no matter how deadly the cost…

First Thought when Finished: The mystery in Kingdom Come was excellent there was just a little too much relationship drama.

Overall Thoughts: I am a big fan of Gabriel Knight (a video game series) and so I knew that Jane Jensen wrote excellent storylines that are methodical and compelling. I am thrilled that translates into the ability to write really good novels too. The mystery was twisty, turny, and the way it came together at the end really worked. It wasn’t rushed and played out to an almost perfect beat. The only part of this that was a little distracting was the romance between the lead detective and a possible suspect. I felt this was just ill timed but in the end it worked out. The best part, Elizabeth is a strong female detective and very well-rounded character which is my favorite type of lead in mystery/thrillers. I really look forward to more books in the series.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: Rachel Fulginiti /Length: 7 hrs and 32 mins


I think this is the first book I have listened to narrated by Rachel and she impressed me. I have to admit I haven’t been around the Amish but the accents seemed natural to me. Her Elizabeth was spot on. I liked her performance and would listen to her again!
