Great Story, Great Characters

The Confessors' Club: A Dek Elstrom PI mystery set in Chicago - Jack Fredrickson

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review**
Amanda called her ex-husband Dek. Dek was to meet with her father. He hired Dek to find out about the deaths of some of his friends. Dek found, through his friend Leo, that there were 16 people that were the movers and shakers of Chicago. Dek got fired by Amanda's dad, but actually got drawn deeper into the question of what was really going down in Chicago. Especially upon learning about the Confessors' Club.
Dek was down on his luck. Amanda was the daughter of a very wealthy man. Once they parted, there was a newspaper article that almost destroyed Dek. He got rid of the trimmings of his old life with Amanda and started to rebuild. He was resourceful. He didn't just give up. He wasn't a bad person. I liked his character.
I liked the book a lot. Sometimes it was a bit slow but interesting enough to keep me going with all the twists and turns. It was a great story, great plot, and great characters. I highly recommend it.
