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.
Band 1 der Tres Navarre Serie. “Tres Navarre has enough cowboy in him to be charming and enough intellectual ability to be much more than a cartoonish hero! Imagine a PhD in English who loves cats with peculiar eating habits and spikes his Big Red with good tequila…hard to fathom but tons of fun.” (Leser) (95 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 399 Seiten noch günstig?
Tres Navarre has just ten hours before he picks up his private investigator license. On a routine surveillance job, his subject is killed by a gunshot, and suddenly his chances of becoming an official P.I. look like going up in smoke. The victim is Julie Kearnes, a fiddle player who had allegedly stolen the demo tape of an in-demand up-and-coming singer at the centre of a tussle between two agents, one a ruthless manipulator, the other newly vanished. There’s a score to be settled, and Tres isn’t going to come out second.
Band 2 der Tres Navarre Serie. “Tres is stubborn, humorous, makes mistakes but keeps on going to the best of his ability, and of course is a Tai Chi Master.

Someone is coming to Southtown, San Antonio, and the only thing on their mind is destruction.

As Tres digs into the past, he unpicks a thread he really doesn’t want to pull.
Band 5 der Tres Navarre Serie. “And „South Town“ — a localism for the down-side neighborhoods of San Antonio — runs faster than a Texas road-runner on August asphalt as it hurtles through the diverse worlds of human trafficking, homicide cops and one-hundred-year floods.” (Leser) (24 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 322 Seiten noch günstig?

Past terrors manifest themselves again, and Tres must decide between vengeance and justice.
Band 7 der Tres Navarre Serie. “I love Mr. Riordan’s style, the way he weaves the story lines, plots and sub plots, twisting and turning right to the end. And in the end, it’s a story not just about intrigue and mystery, but about love.” (Leser) (41 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne), 352 Seiten noch günstig?
