Publisher's Summary

Rick Riordan’s first book in the Tres Navarre series, Big Red Tequila hit the mystery market like a Texas tornado. Readers couldn’t get enough of its hero’s offbeat combination of academic degrees, tai chi skills, and nose for danger. When the second adventure, Widower’s TwoStep, was published, it quickly earned an Edgar Award. Instead of accepting a teaching position at the university, Tres is finishing up his apprenticeship for a private investigator’s license. He’s doing a poor job of surveillance on the fiddle player in a promising honkytonk band: she is shot in broad daylight while he watches. Shaken, Tres begins an investigation on his own. It’s not long before he discovers that some people will do anything to capture a lucrative recording contract. With suspense as sizzling as the southwestern sun, and a truly colorful cast of characters, The Widower’s TwoStep is a hit with mystery lovers well beyond the Lone Star State. Narrator Tom Stechschulte’s performance adds just the right spice to Tres’ character.

Fav Tres Navarre Story so far!

I've so far listened to the 5 of the books, and am in the middle of the 6th book. I must say that this was my favorite out of the bunch. Great story, with great tension. Shows how different City and Country life in Texas can be.

Again with all of the books, being a Texan sometimes the immersion in the story is broken with all the mispronunciations. Like someone said on a review of a previous Tres Navarre book, you would think it wouldn't come up too often... but it does more often than you think. Like Gruene Hall is pronounced "Green," and there are other mispronunciations of other cities.

However even with this, it is a great story with a great narrator that really brings the characters alive.

Fun Frolicking Listen

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Not on the edge but definetly wanted to know what the heck was going to happen next!


Which character – as performed by Tom Stechschulte – was your favorite?

They were all good. Male and female which can be hard to do!


Any additional comments?

I love all the bizarre characters and how they all fit together. The tai-chi master twist is fun too.
