Penn Valley resident releases second novel

Submitted to The Union

Lake Wildwood resident Kent Treiber has published his second mystery novel, “Sierra Vengeance.”

Set in Nevada, Placer, and Sacramento counties, readers will be on familiar ground with this novel, Treiber said of the book, which is the follow up to his first novel, “Whitewater Killer.”

In this sequel, two women have vanished from Rocklin and Yuba City. As California Department of Justice agents Jake Appleby and Celia Moreno enter the case, a third woman disappears from Granite Bay.

Using technology, intuition and good police work, they make significant progress on the case. When their only witness is murdered in Auburn, Jake, Celia, and sheriff’s detectives find their investigation stymied.

Suddenly, women close to Jake become victims. Keeping his loved ones safe and finding the murderer becomes the challenge of Jake’s life, according to a synopsis of the book.

The story leads readers through Nevada County and climaxes just outside of Truckee.

Three local law enforcement professionals helped Kent depict accurate police procedures.

Treiber had a career in marketing, development and research in the computer industry.

“Sierra Vengeance” and “Whitewater Killer” are available now from Amazon.com in paper and Kindle format.

Sierra Vengeance will be available through bookstores in September. For more information, visit KentTreiber.com.
