Description

In this tightly paced sequel to Redemption, Eva “Lightning Dance” Duran joins the Taos Pueblo tribal police department to uncover a member of her community’s murder…and the conspiracy behind it.

It’s been over a year since the case that almost broke her, but when Eva “Lightning Dance” Duran is called back to duty, she doesn’t hesitate to answer. A bank robbery has left an officer down and a suspect on the run. Law enforcement is in hot pursuit, and residents are on the lookout—but before anyone can catch the criminal, tragedy strikes.

A member of the Taos Pueblo tribe has been shot and killed. The culprit? An untraceable 3D printed gun. With the support of fellow tribal cops, Eva breaks the news to the victim’s family and swears to find justice.

More violence follows, feeding the rising racial tensions between the Taos Pueblo people and the Hispanic community. New evidence forces Eva to consider the possibility that the bank robbery and 3D guns are related, but until she figures out how, there’s no telling how deep this crime ring goes…or how far its evasive ringleader will go to protect it.

In this tightly paced sequel to Redemption, Eva “Lightning Dance” Duran joins the Taos Pueblo tribal police department to uncover a member of her community’s murder…and the conspiracy behind it.

Advance Praise

“Deborah J Ledford’s Havoc releases the latest chapter in the harrowing story of Taos officer Eva Duran and her latest quest for justice. During a significantly dark day in the Pueblo community, Ledford tells the story of Officer Duran and a wide community of characters who somehow balance their duties to solving a devastating crime in their community and maintaining traditional obligations with pride and dignity. Ledford juggles these details with a heightened sense of knowledge and research and creates a significant and accomplished portrait of contemporary crime fighting in tribal communities.” —Ramona Emerson, author of Shutter, Edgar Award nominee, Longlisted for the National Book Award and PEN/Hemingway Award

Havoc is a crackerjack crime novel that got me at page one and had me reading as fast as possible. My favorite kind of story: gripping, fast moving, and emotionally involving with characters I truly cared about. A winner!” —Christopher Reich, New York Times bestselling author

“Atmospheric, poignant, and set in the Taos Pueblo, Ledford’s tribal police officer Eva ‘Lightning Dance’ Duran doesn’t flinch in this dark, twisting tale that’s riveting from the first page. A fantastic second book in this new series from a master of crime fiction.” —Jamie Freveletti, award-winning and internationally bestselling author of the Emma Caldridge series

Havoc encompasses the elements of a thriller that I look for: a no-nonsense, relatable heroine who gives as much as she takes; a book that’s as much about the characters and what they’re going through as about the crime; and a story that weaves in culture and representation of its setting—the Taos Pueblo reservation. Deborah Ledford lays out a multifaceted plot that is thoughtful and compelling, giving us multiple perspectives that only elevate an already propulsive plot. All I can say is applause to you, Deborah.” —Yasmin Angoe, author of acclaimed Her Name Is Knight

“A pitch-perfect sequel for fans of Eva ‘Lightning Dance’ Duran, who is back seeking justice for her Taos Pueblo community after violence strikes and a dark conspiracy must be unraveled.” —Vanessa Lillie, author of USA Today bestseller Blood Sisters
