Lifetime Orders Made-for-Television Adaptation of Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo

Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo

Lifetime has ordered a made-for-television adaptation of Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo. Published in 2009 by Minotaur Books, the author's first mystery introduces Kate Burkholder, the Chief of Police for the Amish community of Painters Mill, Ohio.

Neve Campbell will star as Burkholder in the movie, which also may serve as a pilot for a potential series.

The storyline of the book outlines Burkholder's return to the community of her youth as the head of local law enforcement. She's certain she's come to terms with her past — 16 years ago she survived a series of brutal murders that shattered the peaceful farming community — until the first body is discovered in a snowy field. Kate vows to stop the killer before he strikes again. But to do so, she must betray both her family and her Amish past and expose a dark secret that could destroy her.
