I was offered this sixth book in the Tres Navarre series at a substantial discount. I first encountered Rick Riordan through Battle of the Books competitions when my children were competing. We have bought and digested many well written tales of the fantastical, to our families great delight. So when I got notice of a Riordan story from a different series, I bought it without reservation. It is very good. Rick lives up to his well deserved reputation for solid research, sprinkling in enough reality about San Antonio to take the reader there, enough fiction to make it a dark and forbidding place. (As a child I visited my extended family in San Antonio and Boerne TX, where I have nothing but fond memories, reawakened by this book.) Most people visiting the beautiful riverwalk will sense none of the imagined violence and corruption depicted. Rick does a great job of telling this mystery without using the crutches of the noir stereotype there are no Spillainesque molls with great gams poured into jeans so tight you could seen her goose bumps, just a solidly modern mystery.

As always when dealing with a skilled writer with the support of a quality publishing house, editor, copy editor, etc. the physical product is flawless. My only, and perhaps unfair, quibble with the book lies in how solidly it is tied to this current time. It may have a more limited shelf life than it might have had. The contemporary references do bring the book to life, and the use of music standards rather than 2015 Billboard Top 40 lists does help in this regard. It also lacks the visceral gravitas of a John Grissom, Joseph Wambaugh novel, this is a PG rated Rick Riordan book, and should be celebrated as such. Kudos for keeping Mission Road sufficiently independent to the rest of the series to allow book six to be read and enjoyed without feeling lost. I am glad to have received this introductory book, and to have been introduced to Rick's other books. Tres Navarre may well be as thoroughly well discussed between myself and one of my son's. My wife on the other hand, is a Percy Jackson / Jason Grace fan through and through, and is no lover of mystery or crime procedural stories. As such it is doubtful she would like these books. Well worth reading. Know what you're buying.

Then I discovered your books. I feel like Columbus… finally a new retreat, a breath of fresh air, a new friend. Your books have a wonderful writing style, not layered with useless facts & fiction that add pages to the novel but nothing to the story line. I adore your humor and the interplay of the characters. Thank You for sharing your wonderful talent.

Good read. I feel like I don't know San Antonio even though I've spent a lot of time there. Looking forward to reading the next one

Rick Roirdan should, in my opnion, focus on Tres more than The Heros of Olympus. I read all of his Kane and Percy books, but after the intial five in his mythology series, while the books are still good, it looses something. Tres Navarre was excellent. I read Mission Road first, though it probably would have been smarter to read the first one first. While it was still good, it would have been better to ead the other ones first. It was driven and humourous though, and i liked it a lot. amazing Job

This was my first Rick Riordan book, but it won't be my last. He is an exceptional writer and a joy to read.

One of the series of seven "Tres Navarre" P.I. books by Rick Riordan. Tres is smart, funny, likes the ladies & can't keep his nose out of other people's business to the extent he gets shot at/actually shot/beat to a pulp/drugged by the bad guys. So cool - Everyone in Texas carries a gun or at the very least owns one. If you like cats - you'll love "Robert Johnson" - Tres makes him Mexican kitty food!

Although his peers, such as Lehane, McGarrity, and Connelly certainly deserve their acclaim, I don't understand why Riordan hasn't appeared to receive the same acknowledgement as an accomplished mystery writer. This guy is good! I agree with a previous reviewer that Riordan stumbled a bit with SOUTHTOWN, but he's recovered very nicely with MISSION ROAD. I sometimes wish Riordan would turn books out at a faster clip---I"m always anxious for his next novel---but I suppose the time he takes in crafting his stories is worth the wait
I consider myself too old to write and intelligent review. I enjoyed reading this series that has now ended.
