An Amish-Country Mystery

Harmless as Doves
An Amish-Country Mystery

By P. L. Gaus

In Harmless as Doves, P. L. Gaus’s seventh Amish-Country Mystery, a murder investigation originates in the chilly autumn of Holmes County, Amish country. As the mystery of Glenn Spiegle’s death unfolds, the search for answers veers south, to the sunshine and white sands of Florida, where clues are sought near an established Amish community. Before long, a tense search explodes into spectacular action in the turquoise waters of Sarasota Bay.

As always, Gaus—who has been called the “Tony Hillerman of the Amish”—balances the crime narrative with insights into Amish culture. In Harmless as Doves, the subjects of depression, remorse, and sexism are issues the characters struggle to come to terms with as the story progresses.

The Poisoned Pen will be carrying signed copies of the 7th in PL Gaus' series. If you missed him at the store last time, fret not, we shot some video.
