    Jackson Tres Navarre is returning to his hometown of San Antonio after a ten year absence to see if he can make a go of things with his old high school college sweetheart He would ve married her back then but witnessing his father, then the local County Sheriff, being gunned down in their front yard and the case never solved well, that does things to a young man So, instead of the life he d always thought he wanted, Tres suddenly needed a fresh start as far away as he could get He made Jackson Tres Navarre is returning to his hometown of San Antonio after a ten year absence to see if he can make a go of things with his old high school college sweetheart He would ve married her back then but witnessing his father, then the local County Sheriff, being gunned down in their front yard and the case never solved well, that does things to a young man So, instead of the life he d always thought he wanted, Tres suddenly needed a fresh start as far away as he could get He made good use of that interim decade, earning a PhD in Literature and becoming a Tai Chi devotee, and generally making a life for himself in San Francisco Once back on his old stomping grounds, however, it doesn t take long for the old questions about his father s murder to start reasserting themselves.The author, Rick Riordan, is, of course, best know for his successful Percy Jackson YA series but this one pre dates that I mostly picked this up because I m quite familiar with San Antonio and Riordan did a credible job of hitting a lot of the local hot spots, though several have changed or are no longer around this was published back in 1997 I found his portrayal of the Mexican and Mexican American people in the story far less appealing As a lead character, Tres was okay though I admit that some of the bests moments in the story for me were when he was getting punched or run over by cars He s the kind of guy who always has a smug comment to make and who s too cool to ever feel something as mundane as fear when guns are placed to his head which his Tai Chi skills can usually take care of with minimal sweat spent so those moments when life swats him down are just like cherries on top of sundaes Of the secondary characters, none really stood out And don t get me started on Tres romantic life I m not sure what was going on there There s the San Antonio old ex girlfriend but there s also apparently a not so old ex San Francisco girlfriend, though the details on that relationship are never made clear so maybe that was just a friends with benefits thing It was all too vague and odd view spoiler sleeping with his ex San Francisco girlfriend while his potential San Antonio girlfriend the one he moved halfway across the country to be with is missing kidnapped was in serious poor taste hide spoiler So, needless to say, I wasn t invested in either relationship I will say this, though, at least the San Franciso lady had some useful skills that could come in very handy if the rest of Tres life is going to be like his first week back in his hometown The cold case surrounding the murder of Tres father started off interesting but it got too convoluted and there were too many potential players involved I started losing track of who was who and who potentially did what and the ultimate reveal seemed a little far fetched I ll give this a generous three stars and I may check out the second bookmostly because I already own it, having picked up books one and two at a used bookstore

    Rick Riordan is the author of my beloved Percy Jackson and the Olympians series Little known fact he d already been a published writer of a critically acclaimed mystery series for at least a decade previous to that.Given my love of Riordan s YA fantasy and my love of mystery series, I ve been wanting to try his Tres Navarre series in earnest for some time I d started this book several times in the past but always ended up getting drawn away by other things within the first chapter or two T Rick Riordan is the author of my beloved Percy Jackson and the Olympians series Little known fact he d already been a published writer of a critically acclaimed mystery series for at least a decade previous to that.Given my love of Riordan s YA fantasy and my love of mystery series, I ve been wanting to try his Tres Navarre series in earnest for some time I d started this book several times in the past but always ended up getting drawn away by other things within the first chapter or two This time, looking for a break between Conan Doyle collections, I decided to pick up Big Red Tequila and power on through in earnest this time.Considering how determined I was to read it through, it might be saying something that I just couldn t manage it I made it halfway before finally deciding to stop forcing myself to plow through on a book that I was, okay, maybe sort of vaguely enjoying when I was actually caught up reading it, but which I never actually felt like picking up after I d put it down It was failing to hold my attention, and there s too many books to read to stick with something that you re not connecting with.This was Riordan s first published novel, and I think the problem basically boils down to that There s a lot of promise here one of the reasons I was able to pick up the book several times and always made it through the first chapter is that the book starts off on a hell of a hook Our narrator, Jackson Tres Navarre and yes, Percy Jackson s surname is a callback to Tres , is returning to his hometown of San Antonio, and he s barely two minutes out of the cab when he receives welcome home well wishes in the form of the irate former tenant of the apartment Tres has rented refusing to vacate said apartment The story unfolds quickly enough as we learn the double motive for Tres s return at the request of his high school sweetheart, as well as because he s been unable to let go of his father s unsolved murder from ten years previous and would like to finally find some answers.One of those stories is tailor made to pique my interest hint it s the latter And yet, most of the time, I just didn t care Despite being told that Tres is concerned, confused, and still grieving his father, I never really felt any of those things from the character, and so I couldn t bring myself to care about him to the degree that I need to care to be really engaged by a story It was a similar problem with the side characters Many of said characters have a wacky idiosyncrasy which is so fun ly characteristic of Riordan s stories the enchilada eating cat The Jimmy Buffet loving computer hacker brother But because the characters didn t seem to have any depth behind them, the idiosyncrasies felt forced tacked on to make us like the characters because there wasn t anything else there TO like The plot, which moves along sharply enough and has plenty of action and unveiled puzzle pieces, nevertheless could never really engage me because I never really felt like Tres or his associates are real Halfway through, I admitted temporary defeat, and the book is back on my bookshelf awaiting another try I say awaiting another try, despite my negative review, because I ve heard that the Tres Navarre really picks up after the first book as Riordan develops his skills as an author And I m inclined to believe this, because by the time the Percy Jackson series rolls around we have an author whose plotting, pacing, style, and most of all characters positively shine thanks to his decade orof published writing experience I ll finish this book off, by hook or by crook, before moving on to the rest of the series, because I m an Adrian Monk stickler for Proper Reading Viewing Order when I can manage it but I definitely won t be spending valuable Official Reading Time on it This is the sort of book I ll keep in the car to read for when I m stuck in truly bad traffic or unexpectedly have to wait for somebody somewhere I m banking on the series being worth finishing the first one I hope I turn out to be right

    What I liked about this book is that Riordan authentically knows San Antonio Anyone who has lived there any time at all can follow in the mind s eye the travels around town, can taste the food at the restaurants, can rejoice that the speed trap is no longer in that spot, can appreciate the precise flavor of the local politics It was like the first two or three episodes of the old Hawaii 5 O, before they began to obscure locations and make everything generic.What I also liked about this book is What I liked about this book is that Riordan authentically knows San Antonio Anyone who has lived there any time at all can follow in the mind s eye the travels around town, can taste the food at the restaurants, can rejoice that the speed trap is no longer in that spot, can appreciate the precise flavor of the local politics It was like the first two or three episodes of the old Hawaii 5 O, before they began to obscure locations and make everything generic.What I also liked about this book is that there are very few put it down points The chapters are short and you keep saying, Just oneand then I ll go to bed, but you don t until much later.What I don t like about this book is that there are no sympathetic characters Tres is drunk just about the entire book Immorality runs rampant The good guys aren t And there isn t even a decent explanation why the hero doesn t want either girl at the end, except that Riordan is free to have Navarre to bed some other wench in the sequel.OK, maybe the cat with the weird name is a sympathetic character But it sure does have funny eating habits

    I read this book because my husband loved it and because I loved the author s other series, Percy Jackson I hated this book First of all, way too much swearing The F word was used as much as the word the I tried to like Tres, but I can t He s a womanizer and he s trying to solve his father s murder, who was surprise a womanizer However, he makes Tres look like a boy scout by comparison I did not finish the book because I was so disgusted,but my husband told me how it ended Not satisf I read this book because my husband loved it and because I loved the author s other series, Percy Jackson I hated this book First of all, way too much swearing The F word was used as much as the word the I tried to like Tres, but I can t He s a womanizer and he s trying to solve his father s murder, who was surprise a womanizer However, he makes Tres look like a boy scout by comparison I did not finish the book because I was so disgusted,but my husband told me how it ended Not satisfying in the least And certainly not worth the time it took to read

    I was disappointed He wrote the Percy Jackson books, so I was hoping he would be good with this It was just blah And he used the F word just a little bit too much I don t know if I will read another adult book by him or not.
