A Zodiac Mystery

San Francisco astrologer Julia Bonatti’s life turns upside down when she’s targeted by Reverend Roy, cult leader of the Prophet’s Tabernacle. Driven out of her apartment in a disastrous Mercury retrograde period, she stays with a client who’s caring for two elderly aunts. When a long-lost nephew arrives, Julia recalls that Mercury, messenger of the gods, was also a trickster and a liar.
