This book is a classic page turner. I couldn't put it down very easily. You will hold your breath when the villain is identified and be blue in the face before this nasty person is subdued in a most unusual and surprising way. Dawn (Katy Klein's teen age daughter) promises to be the brightest and most insightful young detective in many year and she will surely ouitshine Nancy Drew as a personality. I'm looking forward to meeting her again in the future Katy Klein Mysteries.

It's hard to believe PLUTO RISING is Karen Irving's first novel. I've made a practice of reading award winning novels in many genres, and I put this book up there with the best. A truly spectacular debut.

Karen Irving's first book Pluto Rising was a joy to read: new, refreshing and original! You immediately fell in love with all the characters headed up by astrologer/detective Katy Klein. I can't wait for the next one in what will be a fabulous series. Undoubtably, one of Canada's finest crime writers now and to come.

If you think a mystery with an astologer-sleuth sounds like it might be a little too cute or New Age for you, think again! New mystery author Karen Irving's sleuth, Katy Klein is a recently-retired psychologist, who enhances her knowledge and experience as a mental health therapist with a thorough understanding of her clients' astrological birth charts to produce a new kind of detective. What you might expect to be light, fluffy and fast-paced fun turns out to be much more -- serious and suspenseful stuff, in fact. In PLUTO RISING, while working hard to make ends meet for herself and her teenaged daughter, Katy is confronted by a mysterious and threatening new client. She has no inkling this appointment will unleash a series of events that will bring her face to face with a vicious killer. Not only must she uncover the secrets of Adam's long-forgotten childhood, but she is forced to confront her own worst memories, as well. One of the book's strengths is Katy's strong, yet vulnerable personality. Add in a warm and fuzzy cast of friends and family, and Ms. Irving's wonderfully entertaining narrative voice, and it all adds up to a winning new mystery series! I loved this first mystery novel. Karen Irving is a long-awaited fresh, new voice in the mystery field.

First line, and I was a goner: 'A good astrologer should never predict a death.' Wow! What a hook. Ms. Irving's characters First line, and I was a goner: 'A good astrologer should never predict a death.' What a hook. Ms. Irving's characters are powerful and the plot, suspenseful. I had to read on...and on...and on, all the way to the riveting end. Can't wait for the next Katy Klein book.
