Dek Elstrom has fallen a long way from the lucrative investigations of his past. The only thing he has left in life is the tumbledown stone turret he is attempting to renovate. When a lawyer calls to offer a fast seven hundred bucks, Dek can hardly say no.

No matter how unlikely it seems that a woman Dek never met has named him the executor of her estate, Dek is intrigued. He takes the case and the money, but knows there is a lot more to the story. When he drives to rural Michigan and realizes the woman was murdered, he knows he has his work cut out for him.

The smarmy estate lawyer might think the death of Louis Thomas is an open and shut case, but Dek knows better. From the sketchy murder scene to the rash of evidence destroying mishaps, things look suspicious. When the only leads are an ancient typewriter and a collection of advice columns from Honestly Dearest, things are bound to get strange.

This fly by the seat of your pants mystery is a fascinating change of pace from the usual whodunnits. Readers will enjoy Dek’s self-deprecating humor as he struggles to put the pieces of his life back together. There are four books in this series and this is a reprinting by a new publisher so we can hope there might be more of Dek’s adventures in store soon!
