    CRESCENDO was quite a find for me. As a North Carolina resident, I always enjoy novels set in the state. The third in a series featuring Inola Walela, half Cherokee officer of The Bryson City Police Department, and Steven Hawk, sheriff of the county and her boy friend. Set in the Great Smokies, Inola and her rookie partner make a stop when they spot a blond haired woman acting frantically pass them by.

    A huge man comes out of the driver's seat and her partner takes him back to their unit while she checks on the woman. She seems dazed, possibly drugged, as she piles out of the car muttering about her son and carrying a bag full of cash. When the driver starts up, Inola gets distracted, especially after a shot is fired and puts one into the driver. The woman wanders out into traffic and is hit by a car, dying instantly.

    In just a couple of minutes, two are dead, her partner may be dying, and Inola is under suspicion of actually hitting her partner. She didn't remember, but two shots had been fired from her gun and she's worried she might be the one who'd hit her partner.

    On administrative leave while the investigation is on, no one believes there is a missing child. Inola can't leave it alone though and keeps sticking herself into the investigation, trying to find the child and wanting to know if her bullet was the one that hit her partner.

    Author Deborah J. Ledford keeps the suspense ramped up as the case moves along and some disturbing things come to light. I liked this one and definitely need to get the first two.

    Another brutal case lands in Inola's lap, and this time she's got more than herself to worry about. Protecting the son from his vicious father will tax even her skills. He'll stop at nothing to take his son from his mother, and not even murder will slow him down. Good psychological thriller.

    Crescendo plunges the reader into a plot propelled by two obsessed characters. Inola, the heroine, is the only Native American officer on the Bryson City, North Carolina police force. She feels she constantly has to prove herself, especially after a particularly traumatic traffic stop in which her partner is shot. Put on administrative leave, Inola can't rest until she avenges her partner. She also has to rescue a child who seems to be missing but whose identity or even existence can't be confirmed. Pitted against Inola is Preston, who is fanatically determined to find the child for his own purposes. Chapters alternate between Inola and Preston, tension building as the characters progress toward their clashing goals. These driven personalities are contrasted with the calmer, more logical Sheriff Steven Hawk, Inola's lover, who is trying to help her yet solve the crimes within the system.

    This suspense novel will satisfy readers who want a plot fueled by the characters' wants and needs, not simply by outside forces. Set in the mountains of North Carolina, the story relies on strong individuals who thrive in a rugged yet beautiful environment. Ledford uses the conflicts of different law enforcement branches to show how people in rural communities work together even when they disagree.

  5. Ledford never disappoints. Her stories, richly crafted with color and texture, deliver the reader into the depths of suspense as promised. Highly recommend this true 'page-turner'.

  6. Deb Ledford has done it again. The third installment of the series, she has presented the reader with a tight plot that reeks with tension and suspense--a mother fears for the safety of her child from a crazed madman bent of harming her and childnapping. All located in the hills of modern day Great Smokey Mountains. Another excellent read from this author.

  8. Crecendo is a must read by everyone. It is definately a page turner. You follow the writter along through the town of Bryson City as she go beyond her limits and risk everything to find a child. You feel almost as if you are there with her. Having been to the area and even lived there for a short while, I could visualize the town as I read. I give this book 5 stars and if it would count, I would give it 10 stars.

  9. In this book, Ledfords third in the series, the lead character of Inola Walola comes alive even more intensely than in her first two books. One of the most interesting lead characters in modern crime fiction, she is shown in all her strength
    and weakness. However the quality of Ledfords writing imbues all the characters, bad and good, with a complex humanity that pushes this book above the standard thriller. Previous reviews have detailed the story. I do not want to give anything away except to say that as much as I liked the first two books in the series, this final chapter stands out as a natural best-seller. For deeply etched characters, an exciting story and people you will not soon forget please do not miss this series.
