Zodiac by Sam Wilson
Audiobook Read By John Chancer
In a corrupt and volatile society where people are divided and defined by zodiac signs, status is cast at birth and binding forever. The line between a life of luxury and an existence of poverty can be determined by the stroke of midnight.
When a series of uniquely brutal murders targets victims of totally different signs, is it a misguided revolution or the work of a serial killer?
All eyes are on Detective Jerome Burton and Profiler, Lindi Childs. They may disagree over whether the answers are written in the stars, but they are united by their belief that a grand plan is being executed – Goodreads
A thrilling debut in a society divided along Zodiac lines, status is cast at birth – and binding for life. Who you are can be determined by a matter of days, hours, or even minutes – borrowbox, audiobook
I wasn’t sure of this story, when I first started listening to the audio book, but it didn’t take me long to get into what was happening, and from then on I was hooked into the story. The premise of the story is unbelievably original. Actually I would never have thought of a storyline where people are judged by their star sign, and the date and time of their birth. Their race or colour doesn’t matter at all.
Zodiac is a debut novel for this author, and I really look forward to reading his next book. This is the most clever and original thriller that I have read. As I got further into the story, it didn’t seem at all strange that people were judged on their star sign. It felt totally normal even though at times it does challenge your thinking. And then, there is the action packed ending. But enough of that. No spoilers. I recommend you do read this book.

‘A bold storyteller with an amazing mind’ – Lauren Huxley
‘Impeccable storytelling. Undoubtedly a book which works both on the level of it’s ibntriguing high concept and sheer narrative nous’ – Barry Forshaw
