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

"This story has a great atmosphere and an excellent moral. Would definitely recommend." - Lara Rouse

"I really didn't know about the title but I have to say this far exceeded my expectations. It introduced us to a hard-boiled detective with a semi-soft heart. I loved this series and want to read more. Please go and check it out its so worth the read." - Kiki's Indie Reviews and Rants's Activity
