Having scored the big three of mystery's most-soughtafter awards-the Edgar, Anthony and Shamus-Rick Riordan writes with a blazing talent that matches the heat of his novels' Texas settings. Wisecracking PI Tres Navarre receives an unexpected visit from old friend Ralph Arguello. But Ralph, a seemingly reformed criminal, isn't there to shoot the breeze. His wife, Ana, a San Antonio police detective, has been gunned down-casting suspicion on Ralph because Ana had been looking into Ralph's involvement in a Mafia-related murder.

"Wisecracking San Antonio private eye Tres Navarre has some questionable pals. One of them shows up on his doorstep right after committing a murder. Moments later, cops arrive, not because of the pal's crime, but because his wife, a decorated policewoman, has been killed. Of course, Tres can't just let the chips fall where they may, and thereby hangs this tale. Tom Stechschulte gets mixed reviews for his performance here. He's got the tone down and the humor. His fully voiced characters are vivid. But he is not always paying attention and, therefore, glosses over key plot points and important moments. He lulls when he ought to excite. It's work concentrating on his voice. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
