In his most personal case yet, astrologer/detective David Lowell is presented with a briefcase containing one million dollars in cash and the promise of another million upon success, by Dr. Ethan Williamson to find his dying son's twin for a life-saving kidney transplant. A rare blood type has made a successful donor impossible to find, and time is running out for the boy. With the help of his able staff: gal Friday, vivacious red-head Sarah, master hacker and psychic, Mort, and bodyguard/chauffer Andy, Lowell sets out to find the missing boy and his mother, who disappeared shortly after the boys were born. As he gets further into the case Lowell hires his daughter, and prize astrology student, attorney Melinda Lowell as council to protect his legal status in what appears to be a very complicated issue. At the same time, Lowell has contacted his ex-wife with the hope of reconciliation. Andy drives he and Melinda to Woodstock for a family reunion with their own tragic backdrop from their past. As he pursues the case Lowell discovers that things aren't as they seem and he attempts to uncover the truth. He is joined by Karen Sweeney, an L.A. police officer investigating the death of her uncle, private detective Mickey Broad. She and her hundred-fifty pound Great Dane - Lab mix, Luigi, join Lowell on his search for answers. Using his astrological expertise and common sense Lowell uncovers the sordid facts in this story owing more than a little to the ancient Greek tragedies, as he follows the path to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.
