In Fredrickson’s mystery novel, Dek Elstrom has a knack for solving puzzling crimes. It’s a hobby that keeps him occupied. When he is hired by an anonymous client wanting an explanation for the death of a clown, Dek finds himself embroiled in several crimes that he is blamed for. To prove his innocence, he sets out only to find himself entangled in a decades-old cold case, a dysfunctional family, and a dark legacy of abuse and hatred. As the mystery deepens, Dek must pull down the walls he has built around himself and expose his inner sole or risk his own future.

A solid introduction to the A Dek Elstrom Mystery series. ( )

“Fresh Meat” by Leigh Neely for Criminal Element

If you’re looking for a book to make you run the gamut of emotions, Hunting Sweetie Rose by Jack Fredrickson is it. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to write bad checks. OK, maybe I exaggerated on the last one, but I promise you’ll experience everything else. It’s an interesting and entertaining read.

This is the third is the mystery PI series that features Dek Elstrom, the disgraced investigator who ended up losing almost all he had—including his wealthy wife and his credibility—and it measures up to the first two with ease.

It starts with a clown dancing on the roof of a building and his rather ungraceful fall from grace to the ground. Dek’s services are engaged to determine if the clown’s sudden stop on the asphalt was an accident (as the police ruled) or murder. Dek doesn’t know who his employer is, but he’s pleased to have work and, of course, like all of us, loves a good puzzle. He gets a big one when he meets up with Sweetie Fairbairn and discovers the wealthy benefactor to many charities is the biggest mystery of all.
