JARVIS MANN PI IS BACK IN HIS MOST DANGEROUS CASE YET!!
Twenty-two years ago, the slayings began, a new body nearly every month, front page news for all to read. Gruesome in nature, the victims nearly all female, the killer terrorizing the residents of Colorado’s biggest cities. Until one day the murders stopped leaving no clue, or closure. No one knew who he was, his motive for slaughtering them, and why the urge to kill suddenly ended.
Now, more than two decades later, the urge has resurfaced. Carved remains of loved ones left to be found, lives of families ruined, the slayings echoing an all too familiar case from a past once forgotten. Bold headlines return to the local papers, the police and FBI still just as helpless, even with today’s modern advancements. Has the killer resurfaced again? Why did they disappear for so long? How many more will brutally suffer the same horrendous fate?
Hired to find the serial killer, private detective Jarvis Mann digs deep, fighting FBI resistance, with life threatening danger lurking around every corner. His cunning leads to a man he must match wits with, a man the F.B.I can’t touch. Interrogating to get into his psyche in an all-out attempt to stop the insanity and bring him to justice. Cold and calculated, intelligent and coy, the man, wheelchair bound, holds the answers and the secrets. For he is the only one who could be the evil manifestation of: The Front Range Butcher.
Can Jarvis outwit such a mastermind, or has he met his match? FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Well, I have read each of these books, and with each new read, I find that the writing and stories get better. This one was no different. It was a great story, but just be warned, it was a bit darker than the others. When a serial killer resurfaces, Jarvis is asked to find him. A bit different from his other cases, he is excited but nervous. Through research and many challenges, the hunt is on for a dangerous and elusive killer. While searching, Jarvis finds himself mixed up in a few more cases that lead him into a world of trouble. I have always been a big fan of R. Weir and so far have had the opportunity to read all of his books. I'm going to say that this one is by far my favorite. It was written very well and kept me deeply enthralled. From beginning to end it was full of mystery and drama. It was dark, detailed, and action-packed. Jarvis has always been a bit of a tough character, but each new story makes me like him more. This story was no different. He's changing for the better and has become a favorite PI character of mine. This was another excellent story. I enjoyed it and can't wait to read more from this already excellent writer.
