“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 is approached at Enrico’s Cafe by a young man who asks her to read his tarot cards. When she does, the cards are terrifying. How is Xana going to avert the dreadful future she sees for Asa Ballantine and his sister Beth? Can her friend Thorne Ardall do the job? How does the work the twins are doing on nanotechnology and human organ reconstruction figure into the threat hanging over them? And what help can Xana possibly provide after she breaks her ankle? Meanwhile, why is Agatha Hein, Xana’s dowdy German neighbor, suddenly transformed into a glamorpuss? Why is she driving her husband’s Mercedes instead of walking to the bus at the corner? In this second fast-moving adventure in The Tarot Mysteries series, Xana and Thorne must find a way, in spite of the impediments presented by fractures and furious family members, to dodge the doom she has seen looming over Asa and Beth and solve the mystery of Mrs. Hein’s sudden makeover.

“This is a good, fast read, very smart and very funny in places. I recommend it for anyone who is into mysteries, snappy dialogue, and local color. Also, for anyone curious about what Tarot is. On top of which, it contains one of the most thoroughly satisfying murders I can remember. It went by so fast I would have liked another few hundred pages. But you can't have everything.”

—Joan Kraus

★★★★★
“This is an incredibly entertaining and well written book. It’s an extremely humorous read and it even surprised some audible laughs from me (not an easy feat). The author manages to simultaneously sneak in some profound insights on interpersonal relationships and the myriad ways they can affect us for good or ill.

The plot gallops along, the tension arc is well controlled, and the technical aspects of the writing are seamless and enjoyable. This is an author who can really write. The secondary characters are well and sensitively drawn. The denouement was satisfyingly twisty. It's an enjoyable and humorous ride from start to finish. I was captivated from the first page."
