When Bobby Navarro, a bad-boy biker with a heart of gold, takes a working vacation along old Route 66 in Tucumcari, New Mexico, things take a murderous turn when his friend and temporary employer turns up dead. Bobby promises the victim's young son he'll find out who killed his father and left his body lying in a parking lot. To keep his word, Bobby must deal with a hostile ranch foreman, suspicious police detective, and worried girlfriend to track down the killer before the victim's widow, son, or Bobby himself becomes the next Murder on Route 66.

Murder on Route 66 by Glenn Nilson is the first book in the Bobby Navarro Mystery series. Bobby is a blaster by trade and enjoys riding his motorcycle. He takes a job helping a friend who is a cook on a working ranch. When his friend, Randy, is murdered, Bobby promises Randy’s son and wife that he will find the person responsible for the crime.

I liked this mystery a lot. Bobby Navarro is easy to like and I thought he was a genuinely good guy. He is hard-working and true to his word. I liked following along on his journey to find out who killed Randy. The author does a great job of building up complex characters and painting the setting of Tucumcari, New Mexico. Though I’ve never been to that part of the country, I could picture it through the author’s words.

The mystery of Murder on Route 66 by Glenn Nilson really drew me in and I finished the book rather quickly. It was a fast-paced story and I couldn’t wait to find out who the killer was. I also wanted to see how Bobby’s story developed. When I finished the book, I couldn’t wait to jump right into the second book in the series.
