The Newest Owen McKenna Mystery!
TAHOE TRAP is about a 10-year-old illegal, Mexican, immigrant boy whose foster mother is murdered, leaving him homeless, and, because he doesn't speak Spanish, without even a country he can call home.
Check out what Book Bloggers are saying!
"An open-throttle ride from a murder on the mountain roads of Tahoe to the growing fields of Stockton and back again."
"A constantly surprising series of events involving murder, kidnapping, two nasty hired killers from Vegas... and the final motivation of the killer comes as a major surprise. (I love when that happens.)"
"I love Todd Borg's books... There is the usual great twist ending (in Tahoe Trap) that I never would have guessed. If you like mysteries, you really need to read this series."
"Another wild ride through the Tahoe geography we all know and love with private investigator Owen McKenna and his dog Spot... Another must read for mystery lovers far and wide."
-Taylor Flynn, Tahoe Mountain News (turn to page 38)
"Super clever!... More twists in the plot toward the end of the book turn the mystery into an even more suspenseful thriller."
"The plots are high octane and the action is faster than a cheetah on speed, but those elements never, ever assume more importance than the characters."
"My personal pick for Los Angeles Times Festival Of Books BEST FIND: Todd Borg's Owen McKenna Mystery series."
"You will fall in love with the almost-silent, unemotional Paco and feel his pain for the life he has lived for the past ten years."
"Tahoe Trap offers a chilling thriller, a wholesome story, deeply researched topics, and a compilation of friendly and recurring characters who cannot help but unravel the mystery in just the knick of time."
"The chase for the boy is frighteningly fast-paced. In desperation, McKenna sets a trap, with Paco as the bait. And it almost works. The impending catastrophe takes a sudden twist and the reader, as well as young Paco, has one more hair-raising episode before the story ends."
"A fascinating story with first class writing and, of course, my favorite character, Spot, a Great Dane that steals most of the scenes."
"Once again Todd pulls together interesting and divergent story line strands and weaves an exciting murder mystery. During what's left of my down times these days, I read mystery/crime novels. And I watch for the newest chapters in the ongoing developments of characters like Jack Reacher, Joanna Brady, Dismas Hardy, Peter and Rina Decker, and Alex Cross to name a few. But these days I look forward most to the next installment of Owen McKenna. If you're a mystery reader, do yourself a favor. Dig into the Owen McKenna series."
