MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Amish setting is as strange and intriguing as that of any foreign country, and the strong-willed characters challenge the reader's prejudices and values. This novel, the first in a series, opens the door for further exploration of the nature of these characters and their culture."
-- Wendy Foster Leigh, The King's English, Salt Lake City
"The charm of Gaus's first novel lies in its gently penetrating portrait of conflicts within the deceptively quiet contemporary Amish community."
"Kirkus Reviews""
The Amish setting is as strange and intriguing as that of any foreign country, and the strong-willed characters challenge the reader s prejudices and values. This novel, the first in a series, opens the door for further exploration of the nature of these characters and their culture.

"This story is written in the tradition of Tony Hillerman: Gaus presents a deeper understanding of an American subculture and whythough it interacts with mainstream American societyit stubbornly chooses to remain separate and follow its own unique doctrines. Enthusiasts of mysteries, American sub-cultures, or those interested in learning more about Amish ways will find much to glean from Gaus work."
"ForeWord""
"Gaus writes with authority and warmth about the mysterious Amish. This well-written, insightful first novel bodes well for Gaus' planned Professor Branden series."
"Booklist""
"No one who enjoys a fresh approach to the mystery novel, plus an insider's look at Ohio's Old Order Amish culture, should miss "Blood of the Prodigal." P. L. Gaus gives us a kind, gentle, and intriguing look at crime inside Ohio's famous Amish colony."
Tony Hillerman"
