"Astrology fans and skeptics alike will be pleased."--Publishers Weekly Astrologer detective David Lowell's most difficult case begins with a man, a briefcase, and a challenge. Dr. Edgar Williamson promises a briefcase containing one million dollars if Lowell can find the twin brother of the doctor's teenage son in time for a live-saving kidney transplant. Thanks to an exceedingly rare blood type, there are no other viable donors and time is running out for the doctor's son. Aided by his staff--spitfire assistant Sarah, psychic hacker Mort, and bodyguard Andy--Lowell sets out to find the twin and the mother, who have been missing since the birth of the boys. As Lowell digs deeper into the investigation, it's evident he needs legal advice in a case that's shaping up to be an ethical quagmire. Lowell enlists the legalcounsel of his daughter Melinda, an attorney and prize astrology student. As more comes to light, will Lowell be able to find the missing twin in time to save Williamson's son? Or do the stars foresee a more tragic end for this case?… (mais)

Love this series, even IF John Lescault continues to be the reader. :-)
But this one was written 4 years ago . . .It looks like the other two were both written two years earlier in 2012. I'm hoping Mitchell is not done with the series--no doubt his astrology business picked up quite a bit after publishing even the first one, if it even needed to. I suspect he's too busy to write. :-( ( )

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 series). This novel definitely grabs your attention. All the characters are written intelligently, they use their initiative, they are proactive rather than reactive which makes a great change in this genre.

You get really invested in these characters and want to know what happens to them next.

I will definitely be looking out for future novels by this author.

Full Disclosure: ARC received from Netgalley for an honest review. ( )

Veteran novelist and acclaimed astrologer Mitchell Scott Lewis releases his third installment of the Starlight Detective Agency Mystery series, “Evil in the 1st House”. Once again, he utilizes his fascinating wealth of knowledge about the stars in a captivating plot to produce yet another top notch mystery. If you haven’t read a Lewis work yet and you are tired of those cookie cutter novels cranked out in droves, then it’s time to start. The Starlight Detective Agency Mysteries are unique, intelligent, and absolutely satisfying.

Protagonist David Lowell has probably just taken on his most intriguing client to date – a successful doctor with the wish of discretion and a briefcase containing a million dollars if Lowell can find his missing wife and son. The allure for Lowell is in knowing there is more to the case than meets the eye and he sets out on what ends up to be a pretty simple find. With the help of his trusted inner circle, he continues to investigate the doctor’s background after earning his fee, only to learn the secrets his client may be hiding are worth killing for…and as a result, Lowell has unwittingly moved himself into the crosshairs.

“Evil in the 1st House” is every bit exciting, absorbing, and addicting as the previous novels in the series, “Murder in the 11th House” and “Death in the 12th House: Where Neptune Rules”. Lewis’ fans will be delighted with the latest release and the books are highly recommended for those not yet familiar with his novels. Many book series will just take a character and throw them into new situations, writing up different scenarios but with the same stagnant protagonist parameters. Conversely, each of Lewis’ books in turn has taken Lowell’s character, pushed it to extremes, and developed it further and further so the reader experiences his growth alongside him. There’s movement in Lowell’s personality and disposition, giving him depth and long-term likeability and interest. Lowell sticks in your memory and you simply want more. The plot is well-organized and unfolds seamlessly, grabbing you at the very beginning, hanging on throughout to maintain that anticipation and suspense, and producing that deep-breath release when you finally see all the pieces fit together perfectly. Further, Lewis’ style incorporates his over 20-years of experience as an astrologer, bringing a mysterious and mystic flavor to his books that you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll end up reading all afternoon because it’s just not a novel you put down!
