In addition to various venues of theater and visual arts, Tahoe is also home to various writers. One of our favorites is Todd Borg, who writes mysteries set in Lake Tahoe. While it’s fun to read about locales known to most Tahoe residents, the stories themselves are first-rate, completely captivating, and hard to put down.
Todd’s last book, Tahoe Silence, won the prestigious Ben Franklin Award in 2009 for Best Mystery of the Year. This was Todd’s second Ben Franklin Award, the first being won for Tahoe Blowup in 2002.
His latest book, Tahoe Heat, came out the first of August. Private investigator Owen McKenna is again featured assisted in his mystery solving by his Great Dane, Spot. It’s a must read. So get yourself a copy at any regional bookstore, any Red Hut, or Master Framing Gallery. It’s a must read!!
