An excellently twisting thriller where cop tracks killer through a turbulent city. Prejudice is rife and violence is in the air. In Sam Wilson's world it is not religion or skin tone that separates people but star signs. The obsessive Virgos are shunned by the down-to-earth Taurus; the wealthy, driven Capricorns look down on the hippie Pisces; Librans want to get on with everybody but no one likes the stubborn, violent Aries. It is a rigid and highly insular society. Now the chief of police is dead in a 'signist' killing and the city is ready to explode. By using star signs to define one’s place in society, Sam Wilson has invented a system of hatred and prejudice unrelated to any of the usual divides seen in our society. The downtrodden, the dispossessed, the money grabbing privileged classes, the peacemakers and the peacekeepers can all be examined through a different lens. It is a very clever way of taking extremely pertinent issues and looking at them without the usual hang-ups of race, politics, religion and so forth. Not South Africa, not Northern Ireland, but somewhere just as divided, San Celeste is a world totally different from ours yet frighteningly familiar. I look forward to hearing more from the creator. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
