Hunting Sweetie Rose by Jack Fredrickson
I’m wildly fond of this author. This is the 3rd book in his mystery series, and it’s as good as the 1st.
That’s some serious praise.
Dek still lives in the turret his grandfather built, and he continues to spar with the city officials who claim the property for themselves.
And his on-again/off-again relationship with his ex-wife Amanda continues. (Yeah, it’s time to move on, dude.)
And his wonderfully weird friend Leo is still hanging around being odd and entertaining.
The new thing here is Dek’s latest case: he’s asked to investigate the death of a clown (Scary! Clowns are hella scary!) who plunged to his death off a roof while performing a stunt. Yup, probably it was murder.
And it’s a strange situation, because Dek doesn’t know at first who actually hired him. So that’s the second mystery to solve.
And the whole thing gets all convoluted fast.
Looking forward to book 4…
