Book description
San Francisco astrologer Julia Bonatti never thought murder would be part of her practice, but now, Julia’s former boss and current client has asked for help. He has serious problems at his law firm. Two attorneys and a paralegal have received death threats and the only common denominator between all three is a case long settled — the highly publicized Bank of San Francisco fire. Julia’s convinced a woman is behind the threats, perhaps even the widow of the man who died in that same fire, but no one wants to listen — they can’t believe astrology could provide a clue. Before Julia can help her client, two lawyers are dead and her own life is threatened. Can she unmask the killer before he (or she) takes another life?

My thoughts
I had fun going back to this series to see what Julia was up to. It was nice of Julia to help out her former employer. But as they say no good deed goes unpunished - proof she found a dead body. This was a fast but fun book to read. The author did a good job of keeping you guessing right up until the end. I also liked how the characters seem to bounce off of each other and therefore make a great cast. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
