A triple-crown winner of mystery's most coveted awards, Rick Riordan brings his Texas-style take on the crime thriller to an island paradise where ex-P.I. Tres Navarre finds himself stranded with a killer as unstoppable as a force of nature.
Tres Navarre and his new wife Maia came to celebrate their honeymoon. But no sooner had they arrived on Rebel Island than a reminder of Navarre's past showed up dead in room 12. Suddenly Tres finds himself flashing back to the grim childhood summer that changed his life. When a second corpse turns up, it's clear that the past isn't dead and buried--yet. What dark secrets were kept that long-ago summer and who is back to avenge them? These are questions Tres must answer as a monster hurricane hits, trapping them on a flooding island, and as the hotel's remaining guests are being brutally murdered. Tres knows better than anyone the dangerous line between vengeance and justice--and this time he may have to cross it.
"A potent concoction of humor and suspense in a novel that is as refreshing as a Sunday-afternoon Bloody Mary." --"San Antonio Express-News
In Rick Riordan's case, believe the hype. He really is that good." --Dennis Lehane
