The Dave Cubiak series pits a troubled former Chicago cop against a roster of clever killers on the Door peninsula. It began in 2014 with Death Stalks Door County, in which murders take place in Peninsula State Park. The sixth and most recent title is Death Washes Ashore

Skalka will be on the tour to read passages from the books and talk about the process of writing the mystery series and the importance of setting in her novels. Scheduled stops include Peninsula State Park, Gills Rock, Sister Bay and Baileys Harbor, all of which play a prominent role in the novels.
