Snare is packed with all of the elements that make a mystery truly fantastic. It seems that everyone runs Katina Salvo's life. In fact, the only person who doesn't have a say in things is Katina Salvo herself. Katina has always had a human shield, someone who has protected her from the world's hatred. Throughout her life she has been protected first from her father's hatred and secondly from her uncle's scorn. However, as a startling truth is revealed, Katina's eyes are finally opened to the hos...more
Deborah J. Ledford’s “Snare,” book two of the Deputy Hawk/Inola Walela Thriller Series quickly entangles readers who believe young Katina Salvo’s broken past will remain long ago and far away. A popular California songwriter and recording star, Katina has never released photographs and videos or appeared in a live concert because she doesn’t want her fans to know what happened in Valentine, Nebraska on August 29, 1995 at 11:29 p.m.

After convincing her twenty-three-year-old Native American signin...more
At an electrifying pace from tribal ritual drums and flutes to the beat of the modern pop music scene Native American pop singer, Karina Salvo prepares to emerge from her reclusive cocoon to her first concert on a national stage.
Having written and performed her songs as a recording artist Salvo’s agent Petra Sullivan has prepared the singer to meet her adoring public for the first time in the heart of Appalachia, a small theatre in Bryson City, North Carolina. The concert is sold out and the loc...more
Deborah Ledford’s mystery, Snare, plays music with mystery, action and excellent locations. It’s the second book in a series starting police Deputy Steven Hawk and his associate Inola Walela. Hawk is called on to lead the protective details around secretive Native American singer/songwriter Katina during her first ever live concert. But the singer’s business manager has been hiding death threats from her, and the girl who likes to hide away feels more vulnerable than ever as secrets come out.

I am loving this book right now. I love how the main character, Katina thinks and talks, she is very wise and interesting.
I absolutely love learning about the Taos Pueblo Indians. I love reading about the beautiful reservation, how the indians live and think, the spiritual and symbolism, what they eat and how they dress. I love it all!
When I was in elementary school I went to a few classes that taught us about our Indian heritage, I am part Cherokee. It was so interesting and cool to me, learn...more

Read this as a monthly bookclub read. Was pleasantly surprised by it. Let me start off by saying that I'm not a mystery/thriller reader. It's just not my genre. So I was reluctant to read this one because it was advertised as such and the cover art seemed graphic. It was not terribly graphic and I found myself really liking Deputy Hawk and his plucky g/f Inola who as I understand it are the figures that appear in this set of novels. The alternating POV was well crafted and helped move the story...more
Romancing the Book
Review by Judy Nickles

Deborah J. Ledford’s second novel, Snare (Second Wind Publishing), qualifies as a bonafide thriller. The author has mastered the art of changing the POVs of her well-developed characters from chapter to chapter without losing the thread of their individual importance within the story. While many writing gurus caution against multiple points of view, Ms Ledford has used them skillfully.

Mingling the potential victim’s American Indian heritage with her current world adds not o...more

First Line: Katina's eyes locked on the straight-back chair she had wedged under the doorknob.

Katina Salvo has come a long way from her abusive childhood. The reclusive Native American singer/songwriter's music sells very well, even though she's never made a personal appearance or given a concert. Her manager feels that it's time to change all that and have Katina move another step up the ladder, so a concert is booked in a small North Carolina theater where Deputy Steven Hawk will be put in cha...more
I was enjoying the story until the description of Lincoln, Nebraska that included "weaving among the tightly packed crowd" on the sidewalk and "a row of street vendors of varying ethnicities". I guess Ms. Ledford has never been to Lincoln, Nebraska. I had trouble taking the story seriously after paragraph three, although the description of the Pueblo reservation was beautiful. I hope for the sake of the Pueblo people that it's actually accurate.

Another good read from Deborah J. Ledford! I enjoyed the contrast between the two settings - the mountains of western NC that are so familiar to me and northern New Mexico that I have never visited. Once again, the book had a great story line and the suspense had me opening the book every time I had a spare minute. If you enjoy a good mystery, I definitely recommend Snare.
Snare was a very fast paced, fun read. It had solid characters that did things I wasn't expecting. Now I can only hope that there might be another Steven Hawk title in the future.
Great story. Good plot. Rather slow moving at times, but plenty of well researched detail.
I'm a fan of Deb Ledford and have read her previous novels. This was is up there as her best yet.
