Despite a happy childhood, successful entrepreneur Addison Fox has always yearned to find her birth mother. And with the unexpected death of her adoptive parents comes a renewed determination to fill in the missing pieces of her life—to find her "other" family. But she's too late . . . Burnt-out from past investigations, Randall Talbot is looking for some relief while helping out at his brother's detective agency. But when Addison Fox walks in, he can't resist her plea for help—even though her case is murder . . . Addison is the sole survivor of her bloodline—a line that a killer is determined to make extinct. And even if the world-weary Randall has little regard left for life, he may be the only man capable of saving hers . . .
American author, and Ohio born, Linda Castillo, chose the thriller genre as the style of her novels. She penned her first novel at the age of thirteen. A bit surprising, Castillo chose Ohio Amish country as the setting for her debut novel, "Sworn to Silence", which began her Kate Burkeholder series. She then added some romance and romantic thriller novels.
Castillo has had thirty books published by three different New York publishing houses. Her books have won her several awards, including the prestigious Rita award. She has also been on the NYT best seller's lists and the USA Today lists as well as recognized internationally.
Castillo enjoys trail riding and barrel racing in her free time. She lives with her husband and pets in Texas.
