All of the Jarvis Mann Detective stories have spent time on several Amazon Bestseller lists, with more cases on the horizon.

In his own words “I have an oddball sense of humor like Jarvis, but I’m not nearly as tough and fearless as he is. Though no evil stands a chance against my written word!”

The final title on the tour is Tracking A Shadow: A Jarvis Mann Detective Novel



Never knowing where his next case will come from, Private Detective Jarvis Mann is thrilled when his voicemail is lit up by the sexy tones of a lady looking to hire him. Successful business woman Emily White with girl next door looks, is certain someone is stalking her and wants Jarvis to track down the elusive shadow.

Even with three suspects, an ex-husband who lives to play softball, a sexist pig ex-employee and a mystery man who he encounters with painful results, Jarvis believes it’s all in Emily’s head until a killing in her home convinces him otherwise.

Further complicating matters a powerful business man and crime boss becomes involved muddying up the case, leaving Jarvis the prime suspect in the brutal beating of one of the possible stalkers, threatening to put his PI career on ice.

Navigating through each twist and turn in the case, and the affections of two desirable women both with an agenda, Jarvis uses dogged determination and razor sharp wit in Tracking a Shadow that moves across the Denver landscape with each shift in the sun.


Simply wow! I loved it. I felt like I was transported back in time to the tome’s of the mystery and suspense novels of the 1940s. This book had all you would expect of the gumshoe private I, and the femme fatale of a Dashell Hammett book. But it was contemporary and steamy in parts. I look forward to reading more by this author as I was on edge reading it and constantly wondering what would come next. Marvelous! ” – Mona Lisa

“R. Weir’s Tracking A Shadow is a fresh, fun detective story. Jarvis is a wise-cracking PI. His chatty inner thoughts keep the reader engaged, smiling, and on their toes. The pop culture references add an extra dimension to the story. Mr. Weir does an excellent job with giving the reader the pieces of the puzzle. It’s up to the reader to put them together..” – Jada Ryker
