Product description

Review

Broken English is a well-developed, tightly plotted, keep-you-guessing mystery filled with the cultural richness of Holmes County."--The Columbus Dispatch

A mystery man, rumored to have been trained by the U.S. military to kill, has settled in the Amish community and attempts to find peace there. When his only daughter is killed and the suspect is arrested, a wave of violence descends on the peaceful community and threatens to test the limits of friendship between the sheriff, Pastor Troyer, and Professor Branden. Another excellent addition to this series.--River Reader (Lexington, MO)

"Gaus weaves his extensive knowledge of Amish ways into this fascinating, suspenseful tale. There is a 'show-in-plain-sight' clue that will escape all but the most astute readers. The characters are differentiated and believable, from Sands, who feels 'no imposing moral dilemma' to Hawkins' Amish fiancée, who insists on Hawkins' innocence. This is a deeply felt, insightful book."--Ohioana Quarterly

"If you prefer your Amish on the quaint and colorful side, Broken English is not the book for you. For in this, the second Ohio Amish mystery by P. L. Gaus, they are human beings, not picture postcards in a souvenir shop.... Here's hoping this series will be around for a long time."--The Strand Magazine
