Tarot, Wine... and a Dog Named Dog.

When Riga Hayworth finds her new client dead, she smells a setup of metaphysical proportions. Now, to find a killer, Riga must travel from San Francisco to the underworld of Greek mythology... and make it back alive.

Riga's client, Helen Baro, believes her husband is trying to kill her. One problem: her husband died in a car crash last year. Is Helen mad? Is someone else hunting the woman? Or is this really a case of attempted murder from beyond the grave?

But then Helen is found dead, leaving a strange haiku and tarot for a clue, and Riga is hurled into an investigation that threatens the detective and those she loves.

Here I am reviewing the series of 6 books plus bonus stories written from Brigitte’s view.

I really liked these stories as they were fun to read, light despite some nasty occurrences with dark magic, and as for the twins! – say no more –

A series that takes you from the time when .. meets … and sets up her Metaphysical Detective agency in Tahoe and settles down by the lake. Having visited Tahoe I totally get what is meant by the road that gets boring as it keeps on going round the Lake.. Loved the idea of Nessie in the Lake. And Kirsten should know that the latest thinking on Nessie is that she is a either a giant eel, or a whole load of eels that swim together in such tight formation that they seem to be one. And yes, they would look like a monster when doing this…

Just fyi, I found the origin of the phrase ‘sleep tight’  when I visited an old home last year. It comes from when the frame of a bed was wooden with rope tied to form the base. The knots on the rope used to slip so make the  bed more comfy and less saggy you had to tighten up the rope.

I also looked into the Menehunes. [sorry, I have always been a researcher and can’t just stop when I get interested in a topic]. They are (semi) mythical. When the Polynesians arrived in Hawaii they found that there were s number of artefacts and structures already in existence – dams , fish ponds, roads and temples. So someone had lived on the islands before they came, but no skeletons have ever been found. The Polynesians thought they were dwarves for some reason.
