Overall I really enjoyed this book. I do admit some stories were better than others but I do believe there was a nice variety to keep things interesting. I'll also mention that the book did start off a bit slow but once you get passed that it is a very enjoyable read. Some of the stories I absolutely loved and they left me wanting more which I suppose is the point of these for they are short but they do spark your interest. There's enough of everything to keep it from being boring. Great read!
I liked a few of these stories, mostly by the more well known authors like Lawrence Block, but disliked more than I liked. The editing was very poor, many typos and incongruities. Passed the time, but this is definitely not among my favorite anthologies of its kind.

This is an interesting collection of stories that all involve horoscopes to one degree or another. Most of the stories are good, but there are a couple that are incredibly good. I'm not trying to say that I didn't enjoy this book. It's only that most of the stories are fairly tame. I prefer my crime fiction with a bit of a harder edge. But there are a couple in here that will blow you away. This book is well worth reading, and it's clever how the idea of horoscopes was worked into the tales.

Anthology of short story mysteries with astrology as the theme for each story. Not a bad collection of stories with a lot of variety.
A mixed collection of short murder stories centered around astrology by various authors. Some were great but a couple were so-so.
Horrid, had to read it for a college course. Terrible.
Found by accident when looking for books by Peter Lovesey. This is a collection of short stories with the common themes of murder and astrology. Quite interesting and a good introduction to authors.
