Rick Riordan, triple-crown winner of mystery's most prestigious awards -- the Edgar, the Anthony, and the Shamus -- returns with a hotter-than-Texas-chili Tres Navarre crime drama. This time Navarre reopens a cold case to catch a killer getting away with murder...again.
P.I. Tres Navarre is used to working the razor's edge between legal and life sentence. But when an old friend appears at his door, blood-spattered and wanted for homicide, Tres jumps both feet into a no-man's-land. Eighteen years ago an unsolved murder on notorious Mission Road threw the San Antonio underworld into bloody chaos. Now, armed and dangerous, the target of a citywide manhunt, Tres is on a collision course with the past. For on Mission Road wail a secret that will tear his life apart.
