TROUBLE IN TAHOE

Lake Tahoe is a wonderland of mischief for young boys in 1969. That spells trouble for precocious ten-year-old Jeff Anderson when his community is plagued by a serial killer targeting boys his own age. Jeff plays detective to solve the mystery, risking his life to catch a terrifying murderer who may target him next. At the same time, he fights for survival against an even more terrifying bully: his abusive father, a sheriff's deputy with a penchant for violent rage.
