After the death of the third aging rock star, fifty eight year old Freddie Finger, lead singer for multi-platinum Rocket Fire, astrologer detective David Lowell is brought into the case. Freddie wasn’t well liked, and Lowell has more than his hands full with suspects.
With the help of his staff: vivacious red-head assistant, Sarah, master hacker and psychic, Mort, and his driver and bodyguard, Andy, Lowell sifts through the birth charts of the characters and follows the clues to a surprising ending.
Genius idea – not unlike the The Feng Shui Detective i guess.
But why start with the 11th House – i’d start an astrological murder mystery series in the 8th House lol. Heaps of homicide detectives have strong hunches or even use astrology and so on to help them out – I know one who is strongly psychic, a 7th generation Maori “seer” and she’s ace at astrology + the i-Ching. But police-peeps HAVE to show their working. You can’t just charge someone because their Mars Neptune square was being aggravated by an Eclipse and then you got the Tower Card with the Knight of Swords.
Actually, let’s do this – if you had to write an astrological murder mystery, who would you have as the perp and why?
Where would it be set?I I’d want it to have Scorpio Supermods from the 80s and be set at the Large Hadron Particle Collider and have whatever theme it would need to have for Joaquin Phoenix to scream at his agent to get him the lead role.
