In this debut novel, Tres returns to San Antonio after having fled ten years previously after the murder of his father. He returns to wrestle with his past and to find the truth behind his father's death. In the process, he uncovers a conspiracy that involves families he's known all his life, forcing him to weigh love, loyalty, and compassion against the truth.
As the story opens, Tres has returned to San Antonio after a 10 year absence and is nonchalantly throwing the previous tenant out of the house he is now renting. Immediately we are confronted with a guy who is very capable with his hands, won't back down from a fight and the nonchalance is the way he performs most tasks. Add to that a vague air of amusement and the character of Tres Navarre is virtually complete.
Tres is back in San Antonio at the request of Lillian Cambridge, the girl with whom he was madly in love with and had plans to marry 10 years before. She's one of the few people pleased to see him come home with quite a number of very lukewarm greetings received. A lot of people still haven't forgiven him for his decision to suddenly leave town after watching his father get gunned down on his front doorstep.
Anyway, he's back, Lillian's overjoyed and he's determined to solve his father's murder which had remained unsolved all these years. Suddenly Lillian goes missing, her business partner looks to be connected to one of San Antonio's wealthiest families in some kind of shady deal and the death rate has suddenly spiked, particularly among people who may have been able to help Tres solve his father's murder. Tres has effectively poked an anthill with a stick and the inhabitants are not the slightest bit happy about it.Read more ›

Unique characters cruising around my hometown, San Antonio, Texas, made this a fun read. Did not totally love aspects of the ending, but it's a great ride.Published 2 months ago by jane h.
After reading percy jackson books, i found red tequila somewhat wordy. I also found some of the story in-credible because the main character repeatedly made stupid decisions. Read morePublished 3 months ago by David Harrington

I love the books set in San Antonio, but then I am prejudiced since I live there. This is NOT a Percy Jackson book. It is an adult book for adults. Read morePublished 5 months ago by M. Mathews
