Friends of the Library will present Todd Borg, award-winning author, on July 30, 2014, 6:30 p.m. Todd will discuss his much anticipated 12th book in the Owen McKenna Mystery Series, Tahoe Ghost Boat. Todd will also share his writing techniques while delighting his audience.
Book sale and signing will follow at the South Lake Tahoe Library, Rufus Allen Blvd., South Lake Tahoe, CA.
Gertie O’Leary is a 15-year-old girl with a messy bird’s nest of red hair, a serious softball pitch, and a dream to be a movie director. She also has a $2 million price on her head.
When a gang led by a killer called Mikhailo The Monster takes Gertie as the centerpiece of an extortion plot, Gertie’s mother calls Tahoe Detective Owen McKenna for help.
McKenna finds out that Gertie’s stepfather has just died in what looks like a boating accident and that Gertie’s mother cares more about not losing money to blackmail than saving her daughter.
As the unwanted child of divorced, self-focused parents, Gertie has no defenders. So McKenna appoints himself her savior. But McKenna is one man up against a small army of twisted murderers whose orders are to kill the girl…
Meet Todd at these other Lake Tahoe locations this summer.
