“Bevan is doing with the tarot what
Sue Grafton did with the alphabet.”

John Kremer, author of "1001 Ways to Market Your Books"

“Mystery readers are always asking for a new series to read, especially ones with a woman sleuth. The Tarot Mysteries—well-written, fast and fun, set in San Francisco and laced with a soupçon of the occult—are easy to recommend.”

Book Passage

Xana Bard comes home one muggy afternoon to find a murdered man in her back yard. Knowing that even with an airtight alibi she and anyone living with her will be a suspect, she warns her off-the-grid lover Thorne Ardall to stay away until the murderer is caught. How will Xana unravel the mystery of the body in the back yard? How will World War II, gold fever, and a road trip with DeLeon Davies at the wheel factor into solving the murder? And when will the insufferably hot weather ever cool down?

“I was looking forward to reading this book and I wasn't disappointed. Xana - along with her mother and siblings - had cremated her father some years previously, so when he turns up with a knife in his back in Xana's garden it's a bit of a shock. To say the least. A book that has sadness and laughter throughout. Loved it.”

—Aileen Grist

“Things continue to take fascinating turns in Atkinson's delightful tarot series... This time we get a behind-the-scenes look at another member of Xana's family - and you won't believe the secrets underpinning his life/death! The mysterious circumstances surrounding a dead man who appears out of nowhere in our fearless heroine's backyard are engaging, entertaining, and wild - much like the life of said fearless heroine. The series continues to hold my interest and leave me eagerly awaiting the next installment... It's been a marvelous find!”
