“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.”

Xana Bard, the tarot-reading “accidental sleuth” of The Tarot Mysteries series, is faced with the challenging Thalia Thalassos, who doesn’t hold with all that tarot woo-woo nonsense, and whose husband has—maybe—been murdered. The problem for Thalia is that the police believe she did it. Why wouldn’t she want to kill him, since her husband is having a reckless love affair and is demanding a divorce that would leave Thalia abandoned and penniless?

Meanwhile, what was Bryce Gilbertson, RN, doing sneaking down the quiet night-time hospital hallway with an overdose of Fentanyl in a syringe? How will Mr. Thalassos’s endurance riding hobby and Mr. Gilbertson’s angel-of-death propensity make trouble for Xana and her friends?

"The Hierophant Card won me over with a fast-paced plot, an intriguing Tarot card-reading protagonist/narrator, and some lovely use of language reminding us that style counts as much as form when considering the pleasures of the written word.

Atkinson is a talented writer worthy of your attention. Whether you start your Tarot Mysteries journey with this title or The Fool Card, The Magician Card, The High Priestess Card, The Empress Card or The Emperor Card, enjoy the hand you are dealt."

—Jim Alkon, Editorial Director of BookTrib.com

“I read quite a few mystery books, and try very hard to figure out “whodunnit” before the end of the book. I loved this book, because every time I thought I had figured it out, something happened to steer me in another direction. One of the characters has a mannerism that I thought for sure was going to be the thing that got him caught as “the” killer. I won’t say if that was true or not.

I love the character of Xana Bard. Her sense of humor makes me smile and sometimes laugh out loud when I’m reading. And I love learning something new about tarot in each of the books in the Tarot Book Series.

The only bad thing is that I’ve finished the book and now have to wait for the next book in the series. Bevan Atkinson brings a new approach and a unique voice to mystery writing, and I’m hooked. If you haven’t read any of them yet, dive into the pages of these fun books.”
