He has a staff of highly competent, well-trained, individuals who actively accept Lowell’s reliance on Astrology.

    5. EDIT*** Turns out this is the third book. So I'm pretty sure we get a better feel on who Lowell is in the first book. :]It's ok. Not bad, but ok. Evil in the 1st House is an easy read, you can finish it in a day with no problem. Lowell is a wealthy private investigator that uses the unorthodox method of astrology to help solve his cases. For me personally I felt that the story had great potential, I'm big on mysteries and this is the first detective story I've read that used the stars. I just fe [...]

    6. This was an unusual detective novel; unusual, in the fact that the main character uses astrology to help solve cases.I loved the way the two stories that made up this novel were written and it was clear to the reader which particular case was being discussed at which particular time. What a maze of twists and turns each story takes although this reader guessed the culprit of the main mystery long before it was revealed.The characterisation was good (as one would expect of the third novel in the [...]

    7. Wealthy astrologist David Lowell's Starlight detective agency only takes cases he finds interesting. He's working on an embezzlement case and also is hired by a doctor to find his estranged wife and son, as the son's twin needs a kidney transplant. But there's something about one of the cases that has inspired the interest of a hired killer. David knows that there is something wrong with the solutions to both these cases, but will he find the problems in time. Lots of astrological explanations, [...]

    8. This is the third book in the series. I enjoyed the first two, not only for the storylines, but also because it is about a detective who uses astrology to solve mysteries. However thus far this is my favorite of the three. Not only is the plot very interesting with evil actually being represented, but the astrology is in an area that I particularly have an interest in - Medical Astrology. This third book develops the characters further, so much so that I now want to read the next book to see wha [...]

    9. How is that reading about someone's trouble can take you away from your own? Is it that when you look at them you know you're not alone, or perhaps because it happens in a novel it's a controlled environment that you know is not real? Whatever

    10. I enjoyed reading all three of the novels Mr. Lewis has written so far. I love the way Astrology is woven into the stories, and I like his characters, who are unique - the way that real people are unique. I really hope he writes more books.

    11. This is not high literature, but I enjoy this series. The hook is that the detective runs an astrology-based detective agency, but the plots are complex, without being convoluted and the mysteries are engaging.

    12. I enjoyed the book. Wasn't seeing the direction of the book for a while. Had some suspicions, but questions answered right to the end.

    13. Was happy to see a new book in this series. There are two cases to be solved. It is apparent which case involves the hit man after David and his staff
