About the Book
About the Author
Deception is book four in the Natchez Trace Park Ranger Series that is written by Patricia Bradley. I have not read all the books, and I did not have any issues following along. I was drawn into the book immediately and did not want to put the book down. There was so much going on that I did even know where to start with trying to figure out who was responsible for what. Madison Thorn used to be in the violent crimes unit of the ISB. That is until a FBI agent tried to kill her and she had to return fire. She was working on bringing down human trafficking. She is now happily working in the fraud and cyber crime division. She is placed on a case that brings her back to Natchez where she spent her summers at with her grandfather. She is happy to return back to Natchez to spend some time with her grandfather, who is acting weird. Then someone takes a shot at him. Clayton Bradshaw is also Park Ranger and grew up with Madison and her cousins. The same day that someone shoots Madison's grandfather, someone shoots a woman that is a dead-ringer for Madison. He is then assigned to help keep an eye on Madison and figure out why there is a woman who looks like her and why she is shot.
Madison finds out that there are some deep family secrets with her beloved grandfather. Secrets she never could have imagined. She suddenly realizes she cannot trust anyone. Madison is then thrust into an investigation that has so many webs spiraling off of it. An investigation that she has to figure out before someone kills her.
There is so much action in this story. There is so much description that went into this story. I felt that I was standing in Natchez watching everything unfold. The author did an amazing job laying down the clues that contained some false ones along the way.
