Rebecca's Review
 4 STARS!!!
Cleveland Detective Rollin Wells has a personal vendetta; find enough evidence to expose the nefarious Cardano family mobsters once and for all, allowing justice to run its course. They stole something very precious from him and Rollin is not about to stop until each and every one of them has been apprehended. He just didn't expect to lose his junior partner in the process.

Katie Lehman and her young son, Henry have embraced the Amish way of life in Sugarcreek, Ohio. Her past is but a distant memory until an injured lawman is found unconscious in a neighbor's barn. One look at his face, and Katie's worst nightmare begins to unfold. How could Rollin Wells possibly have found them?

"The Silent Order" is a story beautifully written; mixing a violent Italian mob family with peace-loving Amish in such a way that the ending seems very much like a new beginning. Enjoy this re-release of a story that deserves to be re-told.

It was my pleasure to receive a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
