Description

P. L. Gaus&;s Blood of the Prodigal, a mystery in the tradition of Tony Hillerman, is back in a new edition, including an exclusive interview with the author, discussion questions for reading groups, and a detailed map and driving guide to Holmes County, Ohio, with everything one needs to visit the iconic scenes depicted in the story.

In Holmes County, Ohio&;home to the largest Amish and Mennonite settlements in the world&;mystery and foreboding lurk in the quiet Old Order Amish community led by Bishop Eli Miller.

The illusion of peace is shattered one early morning when a young Amish boy goes missing&;abducted from his home and from Bishop Miller&;s care. At first, the bishop suspects the child&;s father, who was exiled from the Old Order ten years ago, but a murder soon casts doubt on the bishop&;s theory. With a strong distrust of law enforcement and the modern &;English&; ways, the bishop must put his faith in an unlikely partnership with Professor Michael Branden before it&;s too late.

With the help of the peaceful pastor Cal Troyer and the reckless Sheriff Bruce Robertson, Branden plunges headlong into the closed culture to unravel the mystery of the missing child and uncover truths many would prefer to leave undisturbed.
