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 legal counsel 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?
About the Author
In his most personal case yet, astrologer/detective David Lowell is presented with a briefcase containing one million dollars in cash and the promise of another million upon success. Dr. Ethan Williamson wants to find his dying son’s twin, who can offer a life saving kidney transplant. A rare blood type has made a successful donor impossible to find, and time is running out for the boy.
With the help of his able staff, Lowell leaves to track down the missing boy and his mother, who disappeared shortly after the boys were born. But the case is trickier than it first seemed, and Lowell hires his daughter, attorney Melinda Lowell, to protect his legal status.
Lowell is joined by Karen Sweeney, an L.A. police officer investigating the death of her private detective uncle. Using his astrological expertise and common sense Lowell uncovers the sordid facts in this story owing more than a little to the ancient Greek tragedies, as he follows the path to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.
