Kingdom Come

An Elizabeth Harris Mystery, #1

Jane Jensen has written “Kingdom Come” the first in the Elizabeth Harris series. Detective Harris is a former NYPD homicide detective. After her husband was murdered during a robbery, she resigned her position there and returned to her old stomping ground in Pennsylvania. She works as a homicide detective for the Lancaster police force. This story begins with the discovery of a young “English” girl in the barn of one of the Amish farming families by one of the sons. There is a definite difference of opinion between two of the detectives, Harris and Grady, about the probability that the murder was committed by an Amish person. The investigation moves on and then another body is found. This time it is the body of a young Amish girl. The two victims have been known to have been friends and further investigation does not reveal a suspect. However, Elizabeth Harris has a hunch; and going against the department’s orders, she continues her search for the perpetrator among the Amish. The action doesn’t stop in this novel and keeps the reader wanting more.

I think this is a fine first book in this series. I would like to continue to read this series as the books become available.

Amish country in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, has always been a place of quiet beauty—until a shocking murder shatters the peace, and leaves a troubled detective picking up the pieces…

After her husband is murdered, Detective Elizabeth Harris turns in her NYPD badge and moves back home, hoping that a quiet life in remote Pennsylvania Dutch country will help her overcome the dark memories of her ten years in New York. But when a beautiful, scantily clad “English” girl is found dead in the barn of a prominent Amish family, Elizabeth knows that she’s uncovered an evil that could shake the community to its core.

Elizabeth’s boss is convinced this was the work of an “English,” as outsiders are called in Lancaster County. But Elizabeth isn’t so sure. All she’s missing is an actual lead—until another body is found: this time, a missing Amish girl. Now Elizabeth must track down a killer with deep ties to a community that always protects its own—no matter how deadly the cost…
