At the center of this mystery is a man called David Hawkins. Trained by the U.S. military to kill, the "English" outsider came to the quiet town of Millersburg and found salvation among the pacifist Amish. But Hawkin's fragile tranquility is shattered when a marauding ex-convict descends on Millersburg, unleashing a wave of violence whose casualties include an investigative journalist and Hawkins' only daughter.

Book 2 of the Amish-Country Mysteries, Broken English compulsively explores a fascinating culture set purposely apart.
In the wooded Amish hill country, a professor at a small college, a local pastor, and the county sheriff are the only ones among the mainstream, or "English," who possess the instincts and skills to work the cases that impact all county residents, no matter their code of conduct or religious creed.
David Hawkins came to the quiet town of Millersburg to escape his demons and unexpectedly found salvation in Amish life-until his English daughter is brutally murdered.
Retired college professor P. L. GAUS lives with his wife, Madonna, in Wooster, Ohio.
