Absolutely loved this novel, the third in a series whose titles refer to cards in the Tarot Deck. The protagonist amateur sleuth is an ex-Weather Underground fugitive who assumes fake identities and reads cards on Telegraph in Berkeley. The plot to "The Star" involves family members of the man: his deceased father's ex-lover shows up with a family secret while his bipolar daughter involves him in a murder investigation. It's all very genial without being corny. It's also fast-paced, funny, and original. Will appeal to anyone who has an affection for the fringes of the counterculture.
