Book Review: Big Red Tequila - Rick Riordan

Big Red Tequila - Rick Riordan
Big Red Tequila (Tres Navarre, #1)
Everything in Texas is bigger...even murder.  Meet Tres Navarre...tequila drinker, Tai Chi master, unlicensed P.I., with a penchant for Texas-size trouble.

Jackson "Tres" Navarre and his enchilada-eating cat, Robert Johnson, pull into San Antonio and find nothing waiting but trouble.  Ten years ago Navarre left town and the memory of his father's murder behind him.  Now he's back, looking for answers.  Yet the more Tres digs, trying to put his suspicions to rest, the fresher the decade-old crim looks:  Mafia connections, construction site payoffs, and slick politicians' games all conspire to ruin his homecoming.  It's obvious Tres has stirred up a hornet's nest of trouble.  He gets attacked, shot at, run over by a blue Thunderbird--and his old girlfriend, the one he wants back, turns up missing.  Tres has to rescue the woman, nail his father's murderer, and get the hell out of Dodge before mob-style Texas justice catches up to him.  The chances of staying alive looked better for the defenders of the Alamo...


3/5 stars (liked it)
I liked Tres and especially loves his cat and wish Robert Johnson was in the book more.  Although I found it a little hard to keep track of some of the characters as it seemed like there was a lot of people from his past that came back.  Overall a good story and I think I would read more books in this series.
