Jarvis Mann is a private detective, whose business thrived on the mundane
Paying the bills by shadowing cheating spouses
Getting in the middle of messy divorces
And working for the fat-cat insurance companies running down false claims

On a Winter’s Sunday afternoon, a young man graces his office steps
His words coaxing with the simple declaration of “Please”
Convincing Jarvis to help find a valuable missing Ernie Banks rookie baseball card

With a dry sense of humor, Jarvis tours the Denver neighborhood with the lad
Door to door, friend to friend, until a clue leads to a surprising discovery
A young man’s personal pain revealed
Witnessing a friend’s act of self-sacrifice
Both teenagers teaching Jarvis a life lesson
That will shape him with new hope and resolve

An 8400 word Short Story by Author R Weir
Plus a preview of the first novel in the Jarvis Mann PI series: Tracking A Shadow
