I really enjoyed the book. Thought it was well written, well paced. The use of astrology was inventive and the hero has all the eccentricity one would want in a holmes-esque character. Read it in one sitting and am eager for more!

I had to stop reading the book after chapter 8. I was curious to find out who commited the murder, but the writing is so bad that I had to stop reading it. The sentences seem like they are written by someone who is in grade 5. Th description given of people, places or the weather are not done in a way that flows. It was a hard read because the sentences don't seem to go together.
