Summary (From the publisher):

Lawrence Block, Sharyn McCrumb, Peter Lovesey, Marcia Muller, Robert Barnard, Faye Kellerman, Joan Hess, and Nancy Pickard stand among the top-selling authors invited by Edgar-winner Anne Perry to contribute an original story to this new collection in which mystery weds astrology to startling effect. Included, too, is a never-before-published story by the internationally acclaimed Anne Perry herself. For centuries the mysteries of the zodiac have intrigued everyone from emperors to plebeians, from kings to commoners. Modern presidents and their first ladies have consulted astrologers, while masses of Americans faithfully read their horoscopes in newspapers and magazines. To some, such prognostications may bear little consequence, but in these tales, as skeptics and scoffers sadly learn, nothing zodiacal can be taken too lightly. Indeed, the simple question "What's your sign?" may prove to be a matter of life or death. From the Age of Aquarius to the House of the Rising Sun, from Capricorn to Sagittarius, the tales in this anthology explore murderous portents and deadly reckonings that lie in the astral plane and wreak havoc in the human heart.
