#1 Dek Elstrom mystery

From inside front cover:

"An extortion letter arrives at Crystal Waters, one of Chicago's wealthiest gated communities. It makes no specific threats, gives no instructions, demands only that $50,000 be gotten ready -- chump change for an enclave where the cheapest house is worth $3 million. It's easy to see it as harmless -- a note from a nut.

Then a mansion explodes."

The homeowners hire Dek Elstrom to investigate. He's the former husband of one of the residents ... down on his luck and struggling to get by. His life has fallen apart, both personally and professionally, and a successful investigation of Crystal Waters' mystery bomber could reestablish his credibility.

But the notes, threats and bombings fit no pattern and make no sense. Suddenly Dek realizes that he himself is the prime suspect.

A good mystery. Stumbled across this author's info in the mystery newsletter.
