Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Baffling clues impede a police probe of the murder of athletic young Thos Kahale, a Lake Tahoe transplant. Wearing only a pair of skis and clutching a suicide note, the Hawaiian native is found shot in the back of the head on a snowy mountain, leaving his Native American mother Janeen to raise his chronically shy son Phillip alone. Suspecting police incompetence (and maybe a little racism), Janeen hires smooth Tahoe shamus Owen McKenna (Tahoe Death Fall, 2001, etc.). It's a natural choice, since Owen's galumphing Great Dane Spot soon succeeds in bringing Phillip a little out of his shell. After Owen learns that two of Thos's relatives have died recently under suspicious circumstances, he flies to Hawaii with gal pal Street Casey to investigate a secret shrine, reportedly the hiding place of such treasured Kahale possessions as a rare manuscript by Mark Twain-an obvious target for the killer. Though Thos's brother John agrees to fly the duo to the site in his helicopter, the trip is incomplete: While en route, a stick-flinging mystery man triggers a crash, seriously injuring Owen and Street and killing John. The perp is Ole Knudson, a ubiquitous Swede with long blond hair and a bushy beard who Owen nicknames "The Viking." Corpses continue to pile up before Owen catches his prey and unravels the mystery of the suicide note Thos left. Mischief and quirky characters keep the tale afloat. The plot has few surprises, but Owen, a wry, courtly sleuth of the old school, consistently entertains.

    A great series -- a must read.

    Having lived in Tahoe for 18 years, these books highlight all that was good about the area. The characters are great, plots are intricate, and you'll love Spot. Start with the first one, Death Fall, then Tahoe Blowout, etc. I simply couldn't put them down. Great reading!!

    I'm really enjoying this series.  The mysteries are well-constructed and Spot is a hoot.

    Another great read

    I love this series. Mr. Borg has created a great character in Owen McKenna and given him a nice cast of supporting characters to add dimension to the story. I like his attention to detail and integration of "art education". This is my third book in the series and I will continue reading. My only complaint, I figured out "who done it" early on but still enjoyed getting there.

    Wonderful fast paced story.

    The author has the right recipe for reintroducing prior characters from this series without excessive verbage. Another great read.

    Great read by kct books

    It has been fun getting to know
    The characters more with each book. I look forward to reading the rest of the series. The stories are clean with very little coarse language over all.

    Another MUST read from the amazing mind of Todd Borg!

    Oh, this was such an exciting read! I feel like I'VE been to Hawaii, Tahoe and just all over chasing bad guys! I wish my favorite chair had a seat belt because when you read one of the Owen McKenna mysteries, you are for sure in for a wild ride! Each book in the series keeps your adrenalin pumping! I am a big mystery fan and I've got to say that this author has captured my imagination like no writer ever has! This is first-class stuff!
