A young boy's freak accident leads Riley to investigate a homicide in the closed religious society of the Amish. No women near the small Minnesota tourist town have been reported missing and because the victim's face is damaged, she can't be identified without the help of a forensic artist. When she finally is recognized as Sarah Yoder, a young Amish woman, the police have difficulty investigating the case because the Amish believe in forgiveness rather than prosecution, and no one in the community is talking. But when Riley finds a clue the cops miss, she uncovers a dark web of fraud and deception in the community - driven by motives as old as the Bible: sex and money.
