    You just cannot put down ‘Stellar Signs,’ once you have opened the first chapter. With a woman detective at the helm of affairs, Prabhu takes readers on a roller coaster ride of suspense as cases are cracked using astrology, something not explored before in Indian English writing.Sonia Samarth runs her own private detective agency in Pune. Each chapter deals with a different case that Sonia tackles. If your heart reaches out to Vidya, a victim of dowry death, Sonia’s next case about two lovers dying on stage leaves you stunned. Using astrology as the main tool for solving cases, Sonia is not your usual sleuth.Prabhu's characters are well-sketched and an aura of suspense is maintained effectively. Her vivid descriptions of places and people transports readers to the scene of actions. Cracking cases with astrology the author succeeds in striking the right balance between the logical and surreal and mysterious.Prabhu’s book is not restricted to merely solving mysteries but is interspersed with doses of clean humour. Sonia is not the average nerdy looking detective, but an attractive woman with a love interest too. The constant presence of Nidhi, Sonia’s pet cat, whose moods are so well captured by Prabhu, will appeal to cat lovers. Nidhi actually forms an important peg in the story, besides adding a quirkiness.‘Stellar Signs’ is definitely a good read cutting across all ages.

    This sounds exactly like the earlier book The Astral Alibi except the title has been changed and it is a different publisher. There should be something in the description of this book to indicate that to make it clear this is not a third book in the series. The original book was a fun read.

    Author: Manjiri Prabhu,Publisher: Jaico Publishing HouseMumbai (Pp 315, ISBN 978-91-8495-441-8, Rs 325)This book is a part of an Astro-detective series, where a female detective – Sonia Samarth- solves cases with the help of astrology. The name of her agency is apt – Stellar Investigation Detective Agency. Various cases are weaved in the book, with doses of humour here and there. It is an interesting novel which compels you to read it from cover to cover.All the characters are well-sketched and an aura of suspense is maintained effectively. The style of writing is simple, yet alluring. Even though solving cases through astrology may not go down well with few readers, but they are sure to be hooked to the book as the author succeeds in striking the right balance between the logical and surreal and mysterious.–Varsha Verma
