Rebel Island

Rick Riordan, Author . Bantam $25 (339p) ISBN 978-0-553-80423-2

At the start of Edgar-winner Riordan’s entertaining seventh crime novel to feature San Antonio, Tex., PI Tres Navarre (after 2005’s Mission Road ), Tres has just retired and married his longtime girlfriend Maia, who’s eight-plus–months pregnant. Tres’s wheelchair-bound older brother, Garret, has persuaded the couple to honeymoon together with him and other old friends on the Texas Gulf’s Rebel Island, where Tres and Garret spent vacations with their dysfunctional parents. When U.S. Marshal Jesse Longoria, a character from earlier books, is killed, Tres gets a chance to work out some unfinished business. As the bodies begin piling up, a lethal hurricane approaches. Fans will enjoy the update on Tres’s life as he prowls through secret passageways hunting down the ghostlike killer while the roof of the island’s old hotel begins to shred and the seas begin to rise. (Sept.)
