Publisher's Summary

Tres has taken a short term teaching job at the University of Texas at Austin. He is living with his brother Garrett, a computer wizard, and enjoying this easy assignment. But when Garrett’s business partner is murdered, Tres must switch from professor to detective.

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.

Rick Riordan, teacher, Texan, and multiple award-winner, creates a masterful mixture of local color and mystery in each Tres Navarre novel.

Crack another case with Tres Navarre.

    "Another winner"
    If you could sum up The Devil Went Down to Austin in three words, what would they be?

    You won't see the end coming.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tres, of course. Though Maya is pretty interesting and in this novel, the brother Garrett gains depth.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Jimmy Buffett and motorcycles. To say more would be a spoiler.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Maya confronting her fears. Who knew she had fears?


    Any additional comments?

    This is the third in the series and I've enjoyed all of them. A private eye who happens to teach medieval literature is a pretty creative character. This book combines scuba diving and computer programming. The scuba stuff is explained better than the coding stuff, but you can follow most of it. It might have been easier to read rather than listen because of the random emails that pop up and are unexplained at the time. But overall I liked it a lot.
