Owen McKenna

Created by Todd Borg

A former San Francisco homicide dick, OWEN McKENNA quit the police department after a personal tragedy and moved into a tiny log cabin up in the mountains overlooking Lake Tahoe. He’s hung out a shingle as a private dectective and works out of a rented office space on Kingsbury Grade on the South Shore, occasionally assisted in his investigations by his Great Dane, Spot.

Author Todd Borg, you’ll be shocked to discover, is a Tahoe native, and one of the more consistently entertaining private eye writers you’ve probably never heard of. Yet he’s quietly amassed an impressive body of work with the McKenna series, nabbing the Ben Franklin Award for Best Mystery of the Year for his debut, Tahoe Deadfall (2001), making Library Journal’s Top 5 Mysteries of the Year list several times, receiving rave reviews from respected sources like Kirkus and Publisher’s Weekly, and making Amazon’s Mystery/Thriller and Private Investigator Bestseller Lists numerous times.
