Author Visit with Linda Castillo

On Wednesday, July 12, at 6:30 p.m., the Massillon Public Library invites readers to attend an author visit with Linda Castillo, writer of Amish thrillers. Ms. Castillo will discuss her newest book Down a Dark Road.

The story begins years in the past, when Joseph King was convicted of murdering his wife and sentenced to life in prison. He was a "fallen" Amish man and, according to local law enforcement, a known drug user with a violent temper. Now, King has escaped, and he's headed to Painters Mill. News of a murderer on the loose travels like wildfire, putting Chief of Police Kate Burkholder and her team of officers on edge. A nightmare scenario becomes reality but Kate begins to wonder whether the police are hiding something, and she embarks on her own investigation to discover the truth.

Castillo, the author of over thirty novels, is originally from Ohio where her Amish suspense novels are set. She is the recipient of numerous industry awards, including the Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence, the Holt Medallion, the Golden Heart, and a nomination for the prestigious Rita. Her Amish thrillers routinely appear on the New York Times bestseller list.

This event is free and open to the public. Copies of Down a Dark Road will be available for sale the night of the program. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling the library’s Reference Desk 330-832-9831, ext. 312.

The Massillon Public Library is located at 208 Lincoln Way East. The Second Street entrance is handicapped accessible.
