Rick Riordan’s adult book series with PI Tres Navarre

I really enjoyed The Lightning Thief series so decided to pick of Riordan’s adult series.  I wasn’t able to get all of them from the library but managed to get three:

Rebel Isle
The Devil went down to Austin

I am pretty sure that I had picked up one other previously but can’t think of the name at the moment.  The books center around a PI named Tres Navarre who lives in TX and is drawn towards trouble.  Navarre is a great character.  He has a great wit, tries not to be serious and yet is very caring.  He’s also very persistent which keeps the stories moving and interesting.  I didn’t enjoy Southtown as much as the others for some reason.  My favorite is Rebel Isle.  I found that one to be very adventurous, stressful with many questions to be answered near the end, all of which came together beautiful.  In that one he and his wife are out for their honeymoon, only to caught on an island during a hurricane with at least one murderer on the loose.  It was nicely done.  The last one, The Devil went down to Austin, was also very enjoyable with friends of Tres being mysteriously murdered and him tracking down the bad guys while getting a few arse kickings himself.

I am quite fond of this authors stories and will read more when I’m not in the middle of a good fantasy/sci-fi novel.
