    Edgar Award winner Rick Riordan captures San Antonio at its grittiest with his mysteries featuring Jackson "Tres" Navarre--unlicensed P.I., Tai Chi master, and imbiber of Big Red cream soda laced with tequila. It's been a decade since his father was murdered, and Tres left town. But he's got an itch that can only be scratched by looking for answers. Returning to San Antonio with his enchilada-eating cat, he uncovers a conspiracy involving the Mafia and dirty politicians. It isn't long before Tres stirs up more trouble than he can handle and finds himself the target of ill-willed bullets. Riordan paints a memorable portrait of Texas in its many unique hues, while narrator Tom Stechschulte captures the characteristic flavor of the Lone Star state.

    Rick Riordan's first book in the Tres Navarre series, Big Red Tequila (S1004) hit the mystery market like a Texas tornado. Readers couldn't get enough of its hero's offbeat combination of academic degrees, tai chi skills, and nose for danger. When the second adventure, Widower's Two-Step, was published, it quickly earned an Edgar Award. Instead of accepting a teaching position at the university, Tres is finishing up his apprenticeship for a private investigator's license. He's doing a poor job of surveillance on the fiddle player in a promising honky-tonk band: she is shot in broad daylight while he watches. Shaken, Tres begins an investigation on his own. It's not long before he discovers that some people will do anything to capture a lucrative recording contract. With suspense as sizzling as the southwestern sun, and a truly colorful cast of characters, The Widower's Two-Step is a hit with mystery lovers well beyond the Lone Star State. Narrator Tom Stechschulte's performance adds just the right spice to Tres' character.
