Editorial Reviews


"Superb ... Tres Navarre walks a thin, highly believable and surprisingly suspenseful line that should delight old Riordan fans and win new ones." 
Publishers Weekly, starred review

"If not the king of Texas crime writing, Rick Riordan is certainly among the princes!"
The Denver Post

"Riordan's Navarre is tough to beat, mentally or physically.... Inspires as many laughs as gasps..... Any reader who waits impatiently for every new Dave Robichaux or Stephanie Plum mystery can add Riordan to his to-be-read list."
--San Jose Mercury News

"As soon as you start reading Riordan, you understand the acclaim. His voice is fresh yet sure, with insights so trenchant they nearly provoke tears. And Riordan's characters, even the minor ones, are achingly believable."
Booklist, starred review, on Cold Springs

"Riordan writes so well about the people and topography of his Texas hometown that he quickly marks the territory as his own."
Chicago Tribune

"There's a reason why this guy keeps winning awards....a master stylist. I can't wait for his next."
--Harlan Coben?

Tres Navarre is "[A] hard-nosed private investigator who never lets justice interfere with personal loyalties.... Riordan shifts his storytelling back and forth between heroes and villains in a tale of revenge and misguided efforts at justice."
Washington Post

From the Hardcover edition. Review

Texas PI Tres Navarre, Riordan's series hero, is back in this gritty thriller about an escaped killer seeking revenge on everyone who put him away--including a detective's widow who just happens to be Navarre's partner. Will Stirman, the mastermind behind a human trafficking operation, was brought down by Fred Barrow and Sam Barrera, who killed his wife and stole his seven million dollars. Barrera is slipping into senility, and Barrow's death was a bad dream Erainya Barrow would just as soon forget. But now Stirman holds her life--and her young son's--in his hands, and he won't let go until he gets his revenge as well as his money. There's plenty of violence but not a lot of suspense in this solidly crafted but ultimately forgettable mystery. --Jane Adams --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Rick Riordan is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, the Kane Chronicles, and the Heroes of Olympus. He is also the author of the multi-award-winning Tres Navarre mystery series for adults.

For fifteen years, Rick taught English and history at public and private middle schools in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Texas. In 2002, Saint Mary's Hall honored him with the school's first Master Teacher Award.

While teaching full time, Riordan began writing mystery novels for grownups. His Tres Navarre series went on to win the top three national awards in the mystery genre - the Edgar, the Anthony and the Shamus. Riordan turned to children's fiction when he started The Lightning Thief as a bedtime story for his oldest son.

Today over 35 million copies of his Percy Jackson, Kane Chronicles, and Heroes of Olympus books are in print in the United States, and rights have been sold into more than 35 countries. Rick is also the author of The 39 Clues: The Maze of Bones, another #1 New York Times bestseller.

Rick Riordan now writes full-time. He lives in Boston with his wife and two sons.
