Book Review: The Silent Order by Melanie Dobson

The Silent Order by Melanie Dobson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, quite the plot eh?

Mob bosses and Amish communities are at odds because they think a certain cop knows too much. The weird thing is that the farm they go to is actually owned by one of their own who they thought was dead. This book had so much intrigue I had to keep backing up to see what I missed. Good job!

Carol Award for Romantic Suspense. Romantic Times Top Pick!
After the murder of his partner, Detective Rollin Wells hides away in an Amish home to find out who is collaborating with Cleveland’s notorious mob. While Rollin searches for answers to his partner’s death, he befriends an elusive young Amish woman named Katie and her young son. As Rollin learns about Katie’s past, he’s shocked at the secret Katie is hiding—a secret that has haunted Rollin for almost ten years.

“What a wonderful book by an amazing author! In Dobson’s latest offering, readers will find mystery, love, and values that have withstood the test of time. The characters are a delight and readers get a fascinating glimpse into the underworld of gangsters during the era of Prohibition. . . .” (Romantic Times, Top Pick, 4 1/2 stars)
