Sweetie Fairbairn. Doyenne of Chicago society, known for big-hearted philanthropy and magnificent soirees in a penthouse high atop one of the city's premier boutique hotels. Why did she give away her money…and suddenly vanish?
A clown. Not known for much beyond blue polka-dots and a big red nose. And going off a roof in the city's factory district. A suicide. Or a victim.
And Dek Elstrom. Known to hate not knowing, hired by a big man with a fat wallet and a long limousine to investigate the death of the clown and to ask any question except one:
Did Sweetie Fairbairn ever exist at all?
Hard-boiled noir mixed with humor, color and heart, Hunting Sweetie Rose by Jack Fredrickson satisfies like a cup o' hot joe—with a shot.
