Tahoe Trauma

Roger takes a very different kind of case from a new client, a lawyer with an odd story.  Before long he’s investigating a murder committed on a ski slope in California near Lake Tahoe.  The killing may be linked to a different case he’s investigating on behalf of another new client, a shady mobster from Los Angeles.  One of the detectives from Roger’s agency goes undercover to work for the mob while she looks for a vital clue.

Meanwhile, Roger’s investigation gets him into trouble with some Nevada casino enforcers, one of whom tries to kill him.  From the lush forests, well-groomed ski slopes, and scenic grandeur of the Tahoe wilderness to the glitzy casinos of Reno and the sumptuous excesses of the Hollywood party scene, Roger and his colleagues follow a twisted trail of treachery to a killer who just might have committed the perfect murder.

This suspenseful thriller can be enjoyed as a series entry or as a standalone novel.

Available in e-book and paperback formats.  Free from Kindle Unlimited. 

Author's Notes

This was a book I'd been planning to write for a long time.  As our sons were growing up, the family visited the Tahoe area ski slopes frequently during the winters, and we came to love, and know well, the beauty and heavily wooded forests of the Sierras.  Northern California is a special place, with majestic mountains and the Pacific Ocean a short drive from anywhere in the Sacramento Valley.  These locations make fascinating backdrops for several of my Roger and Suzanne series of mystery novels that I know very well from first-hand experience.
