“Lovers of suspense will find no better novel to read this summer than Sworn to Silence, a teeth-chattering debut thriller from romance writer Linda Castillo,” declared critic Carol Memmott in today’s USA Today. The tale of a serial killer who terrorizes the Amish is currently at #242 on Amazon. Libraries we checked showed reserves of up to 144 copies on 20 or fewer copies.

The Sun-Sentinel (Broward County, FL) also calls the novel ” an unflinching and respectful look at an isolated community and the ramifications of keeping silent about crime while refusing to believe that the complications of modern life will intrude. Castillo keeps Sworn to Silence chillingly realistic while never stooping to poke fun of the Amish life.”

People magazine also gave the book high marks, as we mentioned last month.
