Tail of the Dragon: A Zodiac Mystery

Connie di Marco. Midnight Ink, $15.99 trade paper (336p) ISBN 978-0-7387-5106-1
In di Marco’s solid third Zodiac mystery (after 2017’s All Signs Point to Murder), professional astrologer Julia Bonatti, who lacks a steady income, welcomes an offer of a temp job from David Meyers, her old boss at the San Francisco law firm where she used to work. Julia has barely set foot in Meyers, Dade & Schultz when she hears a scream. In the litigation section, someone has plunged a letter opener into the neck of attorney Jack Harding. At David’s request, Julia agrees to do some snooping when he reveals that Jack, who was deservedly unpopular, had received a death threat, though several other people at the firm were also threatened. Julia has already seen problems in David’s chart and is willing to work with PI Adam Schaeffer, who has handled other cases for the firm. Meanwhile, a random clue in the unsolved hit-and-run that killed Julia’s fiancé reopens that wound, but which case is putting Julia’s life in jeopardy? Di Marco does a good job keeping the reader guessing whodunit in this psychic cozy. (Aug.)
