Home Rick Riordan The Devil Went Down to Austin. 2. And he looked down the shore, way out past the bend where the rich yachters were eating lunch on the decks of the restaurant, and he thought how fun it would be to go there. It didnt look far. That moment comes when you realize what the kid was doing, what he felt like when he ate water, then found he couldnt surface. Youre alone, and you decide to do one more dive. We ended up in an aging subdivision of northeast Austin, just south of 290. The houses were 1970s prefab, the lawns all gone to crabgrass. 5. It was the kind of neighbourhood that looked best at night, which is exactly the time the local police would tell you not to go there. Dwight drank his lukewarm beer, told me where to turn. The police talk to you about Jimmy Doebler?"

The guy who buzzed us in was around fortyfive, wearing jeans and a rumpled blue Tshirt, a laminated ID around his neck eks-his grizzled hair, beard, eyebrows, moustache, and sideburns all so copious it was impossible to tell where one crop of follicles stopped and the other started. I fancied you could peel one corner and rip the whole hair cover off in a single piece. He chewed on something underneath the moustache, knit his eyebrows at Lopez. But he’s in store for a whole lot more. His big brother Garrett-computer whiz, Jimmy Buffett fanatic, and all-around eccentric-is hoping to retire a multimillionaire by the fall.

Rick Riordan, triple-crown winner of the Edgar, Anthony, and Shamus Awards, has already emblazoned his name on the map of crime fiction with his Tres Navarre novels -- a fast, funny, totally hip series that blends masterful writing with richly drawn characters and nonstop action.Now Riordan brings his P.I. Tres Navarre to the heart of Texas -- Austin -- with a fiercely original thriller that explores family ties as deep and twisted as the waterways of Lake Travis.Tres Navarre, private eye and sometimes English professor, is hoping for a laid-back working vacation when he accepts a teaching gig at the University of Texas at Austin, even if it means shacking up for six weeks with his big brother Garrett, who calls Austin home.Garrett Navarre -- computer programmer extraordinaire, Jimmy Buffett fanatic, and all-around eccentric -- is hoping to retire a multimillionaire thanks to a high-tech start-up company he and two buddies have launched. Garrett has bet everything from his career to the Navarre family ranch that the company will stay alive long enough to make a public stock offering, allowing him to ride the Austin high-tech boom right into the saddle of luxury.Both Tres's and Garrett's hopes are shattered with a single gunshot. Garrett's oldest friend and business partner ends up murdered at his lakefront home -- and Garrett is the only suspect.As Tres delves into Garrett's bizarre world to find the truth behind the murder, he comes face-to-face with the damaged relationships, violent lives, and billion-dollar schemes of a brave new high-tech world.Among the players: a corporate takeover artist with a trail of broken enemies in his wake and an overzealous desire to make Garrett's company his own; the victim's wife, a hard-edged beauty haunted by three generations of family failure; and the head of an oil-rich clan with more power than morals and enough skeletons in the closet to man a ghost ship. Connecting them all -- the beautiful waters of Lake Travis and an unspeakable evil that lies within its depths.A suspense novel of depth and sizzling emotional power, The Devil Went Down to Austin is Rick Riordan's most entertaining work to date.

Tres Navarre is a private eye and English professor. His legless brother, Garrett, mortgages the family ranch to start up a software company in Austin, Texas. A dastardly take-over jackal tries to buy Garrett out for a mere three million and sabotages his new program when he refuses. Then Garrett is framed for the murder of one of his partners. There are suspense-laden scuba sequences. The real killer interpolates commentary into the text.
It is a well-written and ingeniously plotted page-turner and I feel churlish about denying it the fifth star, but the problem for me was a certain lack of originality. We have so many tough male private eyes. The plot involves adopted children and long-lost relatives like Ross MacDonald. The interpolated killer's voice reminds of Thomas Harris. None of this detracts from readability, so as far as entertainment value is concerned it's irrelevant, but it stops me putting Riordan in my pantheon of the great.

Not a fan of first person but otherwise this was written by someone who knows a lot about cop work, Texas, scuba diving, Tai Chi and confusing serial killers.

This is the first Tres Navarre book I've read. Wow! I can't believe this nice young man could write such scary stories. I've been in all the places in Austin except the parts that took place in the diving area. After reading this, I plan to turn in my dive card and not go near the water!

Dark and puzzling, but very compelling. Hard to put down. An ending that is a real surprise. The underwater scenes were lush.

Totally enjoy Riordan writing style in the Tres Navarre series. Characters become "real" and I anxiously await another book.
This is the 4th book in this series and the best so far. It took a twist that made me yell out loud. Rick Riordan knows how to tell a story. Bring on more Tree Navarre--I am hooked.
