Ave Robicheaux or Stephanie Plum mystery can add Riordan to his to be read list He's one of the real artists in the world of neo noir Milwaukee Journal SentinelIn Rick Riordan's case believe the hype He really is that good Dennis Lehane One of the best PI series being written today Crimespree Don't miss any of these hotter than Texas chili Tres Navarre novels BIG RED TEUILA THE WIDOWER'S TWO STEP THE LAST KING OF TEXAS THE DEVIL WENT DOWN TO AUSTIN SOUTHTOWN MISSION ROAD REBEL ISLAND. Although I have long been familiar with Riordan s work in YA fantasy as in Percy Jackson and similar characters I have only just discovered that he also breathes life into a grittier adult genre In this one he has created a character in San Antonio PI Tres Navarre who is sufficiently gifted to inspire admiration and sufficiently flawed to generate a sense of empathy This is not a pretty story by any means involving villains who are as bad as can be and others who are torn between morality and a thirst for justice by whatever means necessary Thus it explores how people who are basically decent individuals can stray into forbidden territory It also touches upon what drives young people to explore darkness and leaves the reader to ponder on just where the blame lies in such a circumstance The fact that it also has than its share of unexpected twists is another factor in its favor and it proceeds at a pace that almost demands it be read in one sitting Think I ll give it four brilliant stars and maybe just a hair

I rated this mystery a 4 within the category of serialized mysteries I enjoy Rick Riordan s series which set in South Texas I m a Texan and to me South Texas is a whole other country separate from the United States yet different from Mexico Rick Riordan knows this and he writes of the area with great insight I enjoy following the adventures of Tres Navarre and his friends and accomplices This is his 6th novel centering on the adventures of Navarre a somewhat down on his luck PI As I ve mentioned elsewhere I try to read any mystery series in order as you can often use facts from the prior novels to inform the one you are currently reading It is completely disconcerting to me to know that certain characters are dead or that others achieve a permanent role in future books prior to these facts being revealing in the text Let me experience the surprise There is but one book in this series and Mr Riordan seems to believe that his calling lies elsewhere I hope he will reconsider This story this location is worthy of further examination and explanation In this novel Navarre finds himself investigating the shooting of a policewoman and his friend s wife who was about to reveal the murderer in a long dead cold case involving the death of the son of a local mobster Navarre and the victim s husband are fingered for the crime and are forced to work while in hiding Navarre is also facing some significant changes and challenges in his personal life which sometimes cloud his ability to respond to danger as forcefully as he should This is one of the best of the series so far There is tension and there are big surprises Riordan is a professional at leading you one way and then ambushing you with a completely different outcome but all logically consistent with what had gone before In this novel something happens which literally made me cry out Oh no not that But such is that power of the author the creator This is a fun book and a real page turner Write some Mr Riordan
