Tahoe Ice Grave

An Owen McKenna Mystery by Todd Borg

Tahoe Ice Grave by Todd Borg

Synopsis (from the publisher): Early one frigid morning in January a young man named Thos Kahale walked into the icy waters of Lake Tahoe and died a brutal death.

It turned into a murder.

Hired to investigate, Owen McKenna learns that the Hawaiian side of the man's family had a secret shrine hidden in a cave in the cliffs of Kauai. Owen files to Kauai and hears about a long-lost manuscript that Mark Twain left when he visited Kauai in 1866.

A priceless manuscript went missing in Hawaii over a century ago.

The manuscript, which would be worth millions, is rumored to have been lost in a hurricane. Owen suspects that it was hidden in the secret shrine.

A madman is killing everyone in his way.

As more people die, Owen tracks a vicious killer who looks like a Viking. Owen follows the Viking back to Tahoe and learns of a cave of ice that is sacred to Tahoe's Washoe Indians.

The manuscript may have turned up in Tahoe.

The killer has, too...

Thos, who was half Washoe, may have hidden the manuscript in the Tahoe cave. Only one person, whose identity is unknown, knows the answer. Owen and his Great Dane Spot have to find that person before the Viking does and they are running out of time.
