Book Review – Big Red Tequila

Big Red TequilaBig Red Tequila by Rick Riordan

Review: This was Rick Riordan’s first ever published novel. It is a mystery novel set in San Antonio and sparked a string of novels featuring the protagonist, Tres Navarre. I can see the beginnings of Mr. Riordan’s dry wit; the humor I love from the Percy Jackson novels. However, this book is definitely darker and more adult than the books he is known for now but I can still see his writing style. The plot and mystery elements were solid but not earth-shattering. And I do feel that the main character would have, realistically, gotten shot several times during the course of his investigation because he took huge risks without any backup but it was nonetheless entertaining.
