MURDER IN THE ELEVENTH HOUSE
By Mitchell Scott Lewis
Poisoned Pen Press, September 6, 2011 ($24.95)
Reviewed by Cherie Jung
The Starlight Detective Agency is run by David Lowell, an astute astrologer. Yes, an astrologer. He consults natal charts for insight into his cases. MURDER IN THE ELEVENTH HOUSE involves the murder of a judge. Lowell is hired to prove that Johnny Colbert isn't the killer. But she does have a temper and she did threaten to kill the judge while being lead from the court room by the bailiff, having been charged with contempt of court. To reveal any more would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.
The author has created an ensemble of quirky, loveable characters that would be a pleasure to read about even if they weren't solving crimes. This is the first book in what I hope will be a long series. I look forward to reading more cases handled by the Starlight Detective Agency.
The author has been a practicing astrologer in New York City for over twenty years.
