Private Investigator Jarvis Mann returns in an exciting new installment of the Jarvis Mann detective series. The brutal murder of an associate prompts Jarvis to travel to San Diego to investigate, where he crosses paths with a gang member hell-bent on killing him. Hot on Jarvis’s tail is a detective agency with a nefarious agenda supported by some corrupt government officials. Jarvis escapes (for the time being) with significant injuries, only to stumble upon a shocking discovery. Determined to reach the end of his investigation, he is forced to team up with lethal foes. Can Jarvis deliver justice to his deceased associate, or will he also end up the same way? Read Mann in the Crossfire by Randy Weir to discover the answers.

Although Mann in the Crossfire is part of the Jarvis Mann Hardboiled Detective Mystery Novel series, it can be read as a standalone. The author briefly expounds on the background every time a past event is referenced. The plot summary may seem like there are too many events to keep track of, but Weir does a brilliant job of drawing connections between the numerous events that occur in the book. Due to the author's use of lucid language, my attention didn’t waver even for a second. Further, he intermittently summarizes all the clues and evidence that made it easier for me to follow Jarvis on his perilous journey without any hiccups. The story flows smoothly to culminate in an explosive climax that also ties up all the loose ends. Mann in the Crossfire is recommended for fans of mystery, action and sleuth tales.
