And if Annabelle and her family of deities are no match for the Demon of Darkness that she believes is masterminding LA's own Armageddon, what chance does a poor little fake like Samantha have?

The first mystery I read by Kris Neri was "Revenge of the Gypsy Queen", the first in the series starring the loopy Tracy Eaton. Though the plotting was loose, the comedy was manic and I had a very good time reading it. (Five stars!) Revenge of the Gypsy Queen (Tracy Eaton Mysteries #1)

"High Crimes on the Magical Plane" is the first in what may be a new series. The protagonists are Samantha Brennan, a fake psychic, and Annabelle Haggerty, a Celtic goddess who's voluntarily doing a stint as an FBI agent on earth.

Again, there is lots of comedy, primarily from Samantha, who never met a one-liner she didn't like. Her flakey personality drives the story. For example, here she's pondering Angus, actually another god of a Bacchus-like personality: "Okay, so maybe he was the only person who had ever seen any restraint in me, but I'd never object to praise, even if it wasn't true."

But Angus brings up the main reason why I didn't give this Kris Neri book five stars. There is too much a mishmash of the fantasy. Celtic deities, leprechauns, flower fairies, shape-shifters, brownies. It's not that you couldn't have a story with all of these, even a story such as this, placed in present day Los Angeles. But it just didn't fit together for me.

The constant one-liners from Samantha got a little repetitive. I kept hoping that she could have a thought now and then that wasn't meant to be a joke.

I didn't think this was a bad book, and there's a lot of potential. I recommend it as light reading.

Happy Reader

Good books are all about engaging characters and original twists. High Crimes has plenty of both. Samantha is one of the quirkiest and most engaging 'flakes' you'll ever run into. I started out thanking myself that I wasn't that off the wall, but by the end so admired Samantha that i can hardly wait for the next book.
Haggery is a god, as serious as Samantha is light-hearted. How could these two opposites work together much less live together? But they do, and the result is a pair of sleuths who the bad guys should really be scared of!

This is the first book I have read by this author. I am looking forward to the next book. I read books on paranormal everything, mysteries, comedies and romance. This book has it all. It's a fast read full of action deception, playfulness, happiness, sadness, sex, friendship and violence... let's not forget magic. Lots of twists to the story line. The messages about life and accepting what you are and what you think you need or want makes a nice addition to the story. I am excited to see what happens next...

Idiosyncratic characters (Samantha and Haggerty) with plenty of metaphors, snappy dialogue and so much so that I kept forgetting "there's a murder." A fun read with much similarity to Peter Sellers in the Pink Panther series or Get Smart on TV. Enjoyed the ride.

High Crimes on the Magical Plane is a lot of fun - it's an original, well written story that is very easy to read. Neri uses 2 protagonists that counter-balance each other and live in 2 worlds - the real and the supernatural. Great characters, a mouthy fake psychic and a Celtic princess working as an FBI agent. Neri draws the reader into her worlds without question of their believeability (especially in LA), while keeping the traditions of mystery writing as her sub-plots and ending bring surprise after surprise. I'm looking forward to seeing what Samantha is up to in the second book of the series - Magical Alienation, which I've just bought.

This book was a pleasant surprise. I didn't expect such a good mystery and the "angle" is new, too! It's hard to do both with a "witchy" book. The characters, especially Samantha and Annabelle go so well together and I'm looking forward to reading their next adventure!

I started reading and I couldn't put it down. I read High Crimes on the Magical Plane non-stop from cover to cover. A cute mix of LAPD, FBI, a fake psychic, a real psychic/Celtic Goddess, and even a gnome! This is a detective novel with a twist that I would recommend to anyone. I can't wait to get started on Magical Alienation :-}
