One of the best books I've read to date. ALL of this amazing author's work will be a permanent part of my library! All the book's characters are amazingly real..I actually want to look Ownen McKenna up in the phone book if I ever need a PI! Plot is like an old mountain road, lots of twists and turns and bumps. Very well developed, no loose threads left unknotted at the end of this literary tapestry. The author's writing itself is as smooth as a satin ribbon, each description crystal clear, each character fleshed out so thoroughly, they almost walk off the page. It's easy to get lost in the story and feel annoyed when something pulls you back out. This is the first of a series, but each book stands alone as well, they can be read in any order and you will miss nothing of the characters. Very exciting..lots of nail biting, lots of relieved sighs when the danger passes. Oh, heaven was the day when I came across this author..I've never enjoyed reading more. Todd Borg is my hero!!

During my last few trips to Tahoe I saw the Todd Borg books. Curiousity got the best of me and had to try them out. I enjoyed this first book of the series, and am on my second. Fun, fast, enjoyable read and it makes you feel like you are in Tahoe again. Todd Borg does a really good job detailing the sites of Lake Tahoe and surrounding areas.

I am glad this is a series because I love the characters. There were a few things about the story that didn't seem realistic but overall it was excellent. Blowup was even better. Can't wait to get the 3rd one.

Owen McKenna is just starting up his private investigation business at Lake Tahoe when Jennifer Salazar walks in and wants to hire him to figure out who murdered her twin sister, Melissa, nine years prior. Jennifer is 14 years old and Owen doesn’t want any legal trouble but has offered to look into the “accident” for Jennifer. At first Owen hears from Jennifer’s Gramma that Jennifer’s mother is in a psychiatric ward and that Jennifer has shown similar behavior. Gramma also admits that she thinks Jennifer pushed her sister off the cliff herself. Things don’t seem to add up so Owen decides to keep helping Jennifer. When they find someone lurking in Jennifer’s house when no one is supposed to be there, Owen decides there is a lot more to going on than what is on the surface. At the same time, Street, Owen’s girlfriend, is a forensic entomologist that has been called in to look at a body that has been found severely decomposed. There is also the missing caretaker, Sam. It’s convenient that he was supposed to take care of Jennifer and now his is missing. There is also the high paid lawyer that has had his last two wives accidentally die and he inherits large amounts of money. I loved this book. Owen is a strong character and I just love Spot, I wish I had a dog like him. There were great plot twists and a really surprising ending. This was a quick read of 255 pages but it left me wanting more. I will definitely be getting the rest of Todd Borg’s books.

Excellent addition to the genre with hints of Robert Crais' Elvis Cole and a bit of the daring do of Lee Child's Jack Reacher.
