The Story

An old friend recruits Tres Navarre to protect the career of a rising country music singer. With a million dollar record deal on the table, Miranda Daniels has everything to gain and everything to lose. Then her half-finished demo is stolen, her producer is shot at, and finally the agent who engineered her success disappears. While Tres struggles with his own career choices, he must extricate Miranda Daniels from a tangle of music industry power games and professional grudges. Tres soon finds himself on the wrong side of the local law, the Feds, and an unlikely coallition of European businessmen and local redneck barons who have enough at stake in the Texas music scene to warrant murder several times over.

The Reviews

“Terrific Texas color. Finding a killer in the country-and-western music industry is a tricky and funny business, the way Rick Riordan handles it.” – New York Times Book Review

HOT BOOK RECOMMENDATION, JUNE 1998. “The tough-guy template gets a Tex-Mex twist.” – Texas Monthly

“A fast-paced tale of greed and murder in the music business. Plenty of San Antonio scenery laced with local color that those who live here will appreciate and those who don’t will absorb.” – New York Times Book Review
