I’ve recently had the pleasure of enjoying Randy Weir’s latest installment in the Jarvis Mann Detective series, Lethal Blues. The story follows detective Jarvis Mann as he is pulled out of his retirement after the roaring narcotics trade in Denver starts leaving a body count. As Jarvis begins hunting down the dealers and gang members responsible for the rise in fentanyl, he descends into a deadly world where the desperate and greedy will do anything to protect their product. Jarvis’ characterization throughout the story is sublime with layers of fascinating nuances, giving us engaging and thought-provoking insight into the harsh reality of the drug world and its dangers.
I found myself devouring each page as the tension and stakes got ever higher with each encounter. Randy Weir demonstrates a prose style that demands our attention and rewards us with excitement as original and unpredictable twists and turns draw us deeper into Jarvis’ world. As Jarvis meets both victim and perpetrator alike through his investigation, Lethal Blues paints a vivid and alarming portrait of the world of narcotics. This story is a credit to the mystery genre, with a complex web of people and their motives, of actions and their consequences, and of greed and the victims it leaves in its wake, all whilst portraying the underworld of Denver with stunning attention to detail that brings the action to life. A must-read for fans of mystery. I highly recommend it.
