“The wide-open Tex-Mex atmosphere is right on target, as is the backdrop of the Austin-San Antonio music scene, where wannabes train for Nashville. The characters are well-defined and original, the dialogue is tough and sharp, and narrator Tres’ wry observations make him even more simpatico than the first time around. Riordan showed real talent in BIG RED TEQUILA, but here, he’s relaxed enough to make it look easy." – Publishers Weekly, starred review

"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." – San Antonio Express-News

"Pure Texas and pure escape!" – The Purloined Letter

"Rick Riordan is a fine storyteller — a talented writer who tells his tale with a just-right blend of humor, action and heart. THE WIDOWER’S TWO-STEP is the real deal — if it doesn’t make a Tres Navarre fan out of you, check your pulse." – Jan Burke, author of HOCUS

"Tres Navarre is a fine, funny, interesting character, who is now my favorite of all the new investigators running around out there. A great story that moves faster than a drunk falling down stairs." – Robert Crais, author of INDIGO SLAM
