“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.”

Eric Whittington, Owner, Bird & Beckett Books & Records

Book Passage

The Fool Card is the first in a series of mysteries linked to the tarot deck. In this first book, Xana Bard has chosen a quiet life——drinking tea, talking to her pets, reading, and conferring with the Pacific Ocean beyond her picture window. She calls the ocean Doctor P., and it’s cheaper than her therapist and maybe a little more helpful. She’s happy enough, until the night Thorne Ardall, shot while chasing his boss’s killer, crashes into her house. Using her tarot-trained intuition rather than her better judgment, Xana patches Thorne up and they agree to track down the murderer as a team.

“The cool, grim subject of Murder-by-the-Bay has never been funnier, faster, or more refreshing than in The Tarot Mysteries. Ms. Atkinson is a wonderful new voice, with far more to offer readers than the typical whodunnit.”

—Duane Unkefer, author of "Gray Eagles and Basic Fiction"

“The sign of a good series is that you keep checking to see when the next book will come out. The Tarot premise organizes some colorful twists, and Atkinson is a very good writer with a fine eye for a storyline. I’ve gotten attached to the quirky characters and to watching them evolve from book to book, and to the vivid evocation of the vagaries of daily life in San Francisco. The plots are good, the writing thoroughly literate and sometimes inspired. Highly recommended!”

—Margaret Keck, political scientist, author of four scholarly
books and a long-time fan of good mysteries
