Owen McKenna Mystery!

TAHOE GHOST BOAT

Published August, 2014

As of this writing in October, Tahoe Ghost Boat has been on Amazon's Private Investigator Bestseller List continuously! 
(2 1/2 months and running!)

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 the 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...

"If you get the impression that I love these books, you would be correct. I've read four books in this eleven-book series. All four have been "Wow" books for me. I've never had this happen before, but oh, am I ever enjoying it."

Cathy Cole of the popular mystery blog Kittling: Books
