Still recovering from his last case, which brought painful injuries and heartache, Jarvis picks himself up to help family out of a dire situation. A call from his sister-in-law leads him back to where he grew up. Big brother, Flynn, has dug himself a hole he can't climb out of, one filled with lies and deceit. Jarvis lends a hand, and is soon caught between Feds and gangsters, leading to peril for all involved. With sharp tongue, nerves of steel, and fierce determination, Jarvis comes to his brother’s reluctant assistance. But can Jarvis save him from the depths to which he has fallen without getting them all killed? Coming to terms with his life growing up, and how he became who he is, Jarvis faces his past, present and future, and confronts an evil worse than anything he’s encountered before, one that may leave Jarvis, and all those he holds dear, dead.
Five Boundless Stars
I am a repeat reader and reviewer of R. Weir and once again I was not disappointed. Each book I read just gets better. I have to say that to me, this is his best book yet! This book is another that follows PI Jarvis Mann. He has become a favorite character of mine among the many crime books I have read. He has a great personality and is an easy character to love and follow. In this book Jarvis is on another case, one more personal. He is supposed to follow his brother. He has a shady past and once again something is not right with him. So Jarvis goes home to investigate what his brother has gotten himself into this time. I have to say I really enjoyed this book. Just like with all the other Jarvis Mann books, it was very easy to get interested and the book kept me interested throughout. Something you haven't seen yet is a little background on Jarvis, but this book gives you that. Being the fact he is visiting his hometown where he grew up, it gives us a little glimpse of why he is who he is and where he came from. Overall this was a great read. The ending to Blood Brothers left it open for another book and with that being said I definitely look forward to reading even more from such a talented author.
