The Front Range Butcher: A Jarvis Mann Private Detective HardBoiled Mystery Novel is by R. Weir. This is the seventh book in the Jarvis Mann series but can be read and enjoyed as a standalone book. Jarvis is a sarcastic but hardworking private detective who has gotten busier and more involved in his cases since the series began. His reputation as solving the mystery has made him highly wanted. This time he is involved in a case with a serial killer that dropped off many years ago. The writing and story are great and kept me on the edge of my seat at times. I like the character of Jarvis, he has a tendency to say what is on his mind and not always making fans of what he says. I had read another book in the series and enjoyed the progression of the character. It is possible to read and enjoy the book without having read the entire series first. I will be checking out more from R. Weir in the future.
The Front Range Butcher is book six (and the seventh instalment) in the Jarvis Mann Detective series, by R. Weir. This is a fantastic detective story, with lots of mystery, suspense, danger, a serial killer investigation, intrigue, tension, and action.
We have met Jarvis Mann in the previous books- and I just love this character and the series as a whole, so much. This book brings Jarvis his most dangerous and testing case yet. When a serial killer is back in action after a couple of decades, Jarvis is tasked with the investigation which will test him like never before, bringing lots of danger, as well as pitting him against a cold and calculating killer. In a race against time before the killer can strike again, with secrets, and hidden agendas- will Jarvis be able to bring closure to the case, once and for all?
Mr. Weir has out done himself yet again! This is such a superb story that held me in its grip from beginning to end. It is a complex and multi-layered storyline, which Mr. Weir expertly choreographed into a smooth and gripping tale. This has just taken the top spot as my favourite of the series, so far!
I can’t wait to read the next book “Mann in the Crossfire”!
Thank you, Mr. Weir!

The Case of the Invisible Souls is a short story by R. Weir. The story is part of the Jarvis Mann stories. I was pleasantly shocked by a great story in such a short number of pages. I have not read any of the Jarvis Mann stories but truly enjoyed the story. I enjoy a good mystery and read this straight through to figure out what was going on in this page-turner. The characters were well developed and there was a good plot. I was shocked at how much was packed into so few pages. I will be looking for more stories by this author.
