Another sarcastic filled romp down in Texas, with a good mystery thrown in This one taking place in Austin, instead of his home turf of San Antonio For me, it made a difference in the story as Riordan really gives the reader a grand tour of San Antonio, with his detail of the place That b If you can believe it, Tres is finally starting to iron out the wrinkles in his life Naturally, as soon as that happens, his brother s life goes to hell This is a very interesting story that touches a lot of psychological bases Serial killer, phobias, manipulation, resentment, skeletons in the closet This book really has it all I was ho I couldn t put this book down This is my favorite Tres Navarre book so far I really liked how the character Maia made a show again I also liked how the book went into Tres brother, Garrett s past Tres is definitely growing as a character. Compared to the book prior to this one, The Devil Went Down to Austin feels like a disappointment and a step back Some great ensemble work was thrown out the window and Maia Lee returned for the sole purpose it seemed of being Tres s girlfriend However, I did like that Riordan started playing around with a different style of storytelling After every couple of chapters there would be an email written by the killer that really ramped up the suspense and added a sense of urgency and a creep fact Compared to the book prior to this one, The Devil Went Down to Austin feels like a disappointment and a step back Some great ensemble work was thrown out the window and Maia Lee returned for the sole purpose it seemed of being Tres s girlfriend However, I did like that Riordan started playing around with a different style of storytelling After every couple of chapters there would be an email written by the ki From The 1 New York Times Bestselling Author Of The Percy Jackson And The Olympians Series Rick Riordan, Triple Crown Winner Of The Edgar, Anthony, And Shamus Awards, Brings His Fast Talking, Hard Living, Texas Hip P.I Tres Navarre To The Heart Of The Lone Star State Austin To Unravel A Case So Dark, Twisted, And Deadly, It Can Only Involve Family Tres Navarre, The P.I With A Ph.D In Literature, Heads To Austin For A Laid Back Summer Teaching Gig But He S In Store For A Whole Lot His Big Brother Garrett Computer Whiz, Jimmy Buffett Fanatic, And All Around Eccentric Is Hoping To Retire A Multimillionaire By The Fall He S Bet His Career And The Navarre Family Ranch To Do It Then Garrett S Oldest Friend And Business Partner Is Murdered And Garrett Is The Only Suspect As Tres Delves Into Garrett S Bizarre World To Find The Truth Behind The Murder, He Comes Face To Face With The Damaged Relationships, Violent Lives, And Billion Dollar Schemes Of A High Tech World Gone Haywire Connecting Them All Is Beautiful Lake Travis And The Shocking Secret That Lies Within Its Depths Now, As Tres Struggles With His Own Troubled Family Past And To Clear His Brother S Name, He Finds Himself Stalked By A Cold Blooded Killer One Who Could Spell The Death Of Both Navarres. This time author tried to give clues a little bit differently and it actually worked There were some inconsistencies about technology For example about not being able to make screenshots you can take picture of computer screen with regular camera D. I love his young adult books Percy Jackson series, Kane Chronicles, Heroes of Olympus , so I thought his adult fiction would be worth checking out Somehow, his writing just doesn t translate Never felt that interested in the characters or the story. Medium good mysterythought it would be better since it took place in Austin Actually, I just fininshed it moments ago I am such a fan of his Percy Jackson books I couldn t resist his mysteries Much to like about this one and liked his first Texas mystery even. Now that I live in Austin, the fact that this book takes place in Austin interested me in it Unfortunately, it wasn t a very good story.
