P. L. Gaus has given the mystery reader a gem of a story with The Blood of the Prodigal. Not quite a cozy and with some aspects of a police procedural, it is an unique approach. With characters that come alive on the page and with clues to follow, the reader will be engrossed from the very beginning of the tale. Set in Ohio’s Amish community, Gaus creatively combines characters of both the Amish and the “English” communities with a deft hand. With an engaging mystery that is not burdened with an overabundance of red herrings or buried in flowery descriptions, this series promises to entertain as well as enlighten the reader.

Chris How graphic is the "blood"? My mom has been reading Amish books lately and she likes mysteries but she doesn't always like the combination.
