The Silent Order by Melanie Dobson

Hello Readers,

This book opens with a bang, and that for real and quite soon in the front of it! Opening with the mob is quite a way to start a book off, much less one named The Silent Order. With in minutes of reading, I was turning pages with out a break. The book write up is a good short summery, but it shows nothing of the gripping characters or the vivid descriptions of people and places. Enter into a drastic contrast, the moffia mob vs. a quite sheltered Amish community. An Amish community where Katie is hiding, and where Detective Rollin Wells has landed. It has saved his life, but he can't live in hiding there forever, can he? And what about Katie? She has answers to Wells's past questions.
