San Antonio resident English professor and private investigator Tres Navarre looks forward to spending six weeks in Austin teaching literature. Though he will spend time with his older brother Garrett that part of the ¿paid vacation¿ is not that appealing. Still blood is blood and Tres will stay with his sibling, who along with a friend and the man¿s wife has started up a security software company. However, to finance Techsan, Garrett has put up as collateral the family farm. <P>Things still look bright until a hostile takeover begins. Soon, someone murders one of Garrett¿s partners and though he is wheelbound the police believe he is the culprit. Garrett rejects little brother¿s interference, but Tres never listened to him when they were growing up so he ignores doing it now. He embarks upon his own brand of investigation in an effort to clear his brother as a suspect. <P> Edgar award winning Rick Riordan proves why he is so highly regarded with his fourth Navarre tale, THE DEVIL WENT DOWN TO AUSTIN. The story line is very fresh while providing readers with insight into Tres¿ personal life through his relationship with Garrett. By incorporating the personal into the who-done-it, readers obtain a smooth mystery that never slows down while gaining a better understanding of the hero. Mr. Riordan may soon need a larger mantelpiece. <P>Harriet Klausner
