Three years later, Detective Owen McKenna responds to a hijacking on Lake Tahoe. The hijacker claims he knows the murderer of a woman who was killed three years earlier, a woman named Grace Sun.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
While Todd had written short stories, reviews, articles and three novels before moving to Tahoe, the Tahoe landscape gave him the idea for a series of novels with a detective protagonist who lived in Tahoe. The result was Owen McKenna, an ex-cop with a tragic background who moved from The City (San Francisco) to the mountains to study art and earn a slightly more genteel living as a private detective.
Tahoe Deathfall was the first novel in the series and received great reviews. Kirkus Reviews called it “A thrilling, extended rescue/chase.” Midwest Book Review called it, “A tremendous read from a great writer.” The second book, Tahoe Blowup, received equal raves. The subsequent books in the series have received many accolades and awards and have been praised in major newspapers and magazines from coast to coast
