    Do not read this book It is ridiculous and mind numbingly dull I was desperate for an audiobook at work, and this was available I didn t read the description because I thought I recognized the name I had it mixed up with another book I want this part of my life back.

    Surprisingly good I was going to abandon in the first 1 5 but hung on and grew to like the characters and story The legal stuff is good and the astrology is intriguing, if a bit farfetched

    Murder, politics, hidden political agendas, and astrology are not your typical mystery components However, Mitchell Scott Lewis successfully combines all of these and provides a unique mystery with Murder in the 11th House Joanna Colbert or Johnny is head over in heels in debt due to gambling This quick tempered bartender has been recorded threatening the life of a state judge Later when that same judge dies a gruesome death, Johnny is the prime suspect and is promptly arrested Her court ap Murder, politics, hidden political agendas, and astrology are not your typical mystery components However, Mitchell Scott Lewis successfully combines all of these and provides a unique mystery with Murder in the 11th House Joanna Colbert or Johnny is head over in heels in debt due to gambling This quick tempered bartender has been recorded threatening the life of a state judge Later when that same judge dies a gruesome death, Johnny is the prime suspect and is promptly arrested Her court appointed attorney is Melinda Lowell and she actually believes that Johnny is innocent The hard part is going to be proving that innocence in court Melinda promptly asks her father, David Lowell, a licensed private investigator and astrologer extra ordinaire to lend his assistance in uncovering the truth As David delves deeper into Johnny s astrological history, he begins to believe her innocence David, Melinda, and David s business partner, Mort Simpson the go to computer guy, attempt to uncover the truth behind the judge s murder Thethey dig, thethey realize that there s muchgoing on than initially thought and regrettably this puts their lives at risk in addition to their client s life Will they be able to uncover the truth in time to keep Johnny free, as well as keep everyone alive Murder in the 11th House is fast is a fast paced read At times it does get a little bogged down with astrological information but in the end the astrology plays a key role in unlocking the secrets to the murder and motive The characters are likeable and realistic enough but somewhat lacking in development with the exception of David and Johnny All things considered Murder in the 11th House was a quick and fun read Look for Murder in the 11th House to be released on 09 06 2011 by Poisoned Pen Press

    I liked this book, but there were just too many parts that were amateurish But, I think the author and the series have potential and I will give the next book in the series a try.

    Interesting story, if a little preachy The author likes to pause his story while his characters talk and or ruminate on how society, or New York City neighborhoods, or the justice system are going to heck in a handbasket But it s an interesting mystery with the detective, who actually runs a detective agency, doing most of his detecting by means of astrology This is apparently the first in a series and the hero has a computer whiz partner, a secretary, and a seriously fancy limo with a dr Interesting story, if a little preachy The author likes to pause his story while his characters talk and or ruminate on how society, or New York City neighborhoods, or the justice system are going to heck in a handbasket But it s an interesting mystery with the detective, who actually runs a detective agency, doing most of his detecting by means of astrology This is apparently the first in a series and the hero has a computer whiz partner, a secretary, and a seriously fancy limo with a driver cum bodyguard He made a bunch of money by trading commodities according to astrology charts He s kind of a snob as well So he has a daughter who is a lawyer, and she hires him for her pro bono free client who is accused of murdering a judge The client, Johnnie, is obnoxious, has problems with booze and gambling, and isn t very ladylike So while the hero discovers who blew up the judge, he also fixes her life I rolled my eyes at the Perfection of the hero, and the pauses for speeches, but overall, I enjoyed this book The astrology was fascinating, and I kind of wish I d had print instead of audio, because the Mercury in Virgo in the 11th House stuff went by so fast for this visual learner But it s a good story, and I liked it I ll probably go see if I can findin the series

    This book combined two things I love astrology and classic style mysteries and made both of them so boring that I nearly fell off the elliptical machine while listening to the audiobook.I don t really know how it happened I loved hearing Lowell s methods for figuring things out His group of coworkers and spunky daughter were skilled and very nearly entertaining The conspiracy around the murder was complex The suspect was truly wild.But none of it ever gelled into something that made me car This book combined two things I love astrology and classic style mysteries and made both of them so boring that I nearly fell off the elliptical machine while listening to the audiobook.I don t really know how it happened I loved hearing Lowell s methods for figuring things out His group of coworkers and spunky daughter were skilled and very nearly entertaining The conspiracy around the murder was complex The suspect was truly wild.But none of it ever gelled into something that made me care at all about the characters When the true murderer was revealed I just went Oh, okay and that was it The unnecessary preachiness of several chapters was also tedious Lewis variously attacks the state lottery, the US legal system, swearing, and shopping without advancing the plot with any of them

    I picked this up randomly, not knowing it was an astrological mystery This stuff is not really for me I m not necessarily doubting the science, butI find it hard to believe that he could tell that someone s birthday was a different year based on his personality.Other than the astrological stuff, the story was alright Towards the end, I lost interest.Also, they solved the case not just with astrology, but with B E, drugging a guy who ended up getting run over after he jumped after their I picked this up randomly, not knowing it was an astrological mystery This stuff is not really for me I m not necessarily doubting the science, butI find it hard to believe that he could tell that someone s birthday was a different year based on his personality.Other than the astrological stuff, the story was alright Towards the end, I lost interest.Also, they solved the case not just with astrology, but with BE, drugging a guy who ended up getting run over after he jumped after their car hmmm , and justsomewhat sketchy stuff I get he s a private investigator, butfor some reason, this just seemed off to me
