Crimes of Magic: The Witch's Artifact by Richard L. King

Crimes of Magic: The Witch’s Artifact by Richard L. King

Portland private investigator Rachel Chase lets her landlord, Professor Robert Walker, ride along on a simple case of alleged infidelity with a witch. The case takes a mysterious turn when a magical artifact is stolen from the witch’s partner. A subsequent murder takes Rachel and the Professor into the dangerous world of scientific magic where real magicians defy the laws of nature for their own nefarious purposes.

Rachel is an experienced, no nonsense private investigator, but she has never before encountered the criminal use of magic. As she investigates the case, she has to rely on the Professor’s research into the scientific basis of magic to help her solve the crimes. Facing the dangers together, a certain chemistry develops between Rachel and the Professor.

A touch of humor, a budding affection, a dose of magic, an element of danger, a bit of action, and a lot of sleuthing combine to make a modern, urban cozy mystery.

This book, Crimes of Magic: The Witch’s Artifact, is the first book in the Crimes of Magic series.

Length: 46,000 words.

This was a unique, interesting and even charming book.  The characters are very well drawn and have rather adorable quirks.  It was an enjoyable read and I'm looking forward to the sequel.

He combines magic, science, physics and a mystery story in s very interesting way. The banter between the Professor and the female P.I. is enjoyable and and a fun read. It is a pleasant surprise to have a female P.I./detective who is portrayed as smart, witty, and independent with an enjoyable personality rather than the typical snarky, angry, obnoxious female who blames men for her problems and goes on a rant every page. Attention female authors: this is demeaning to women and just gives credence to men that all women are loud mouth witches who can't control our emotions. The Professor is supposed to be a 50 year-old good looking computer nerd who is trying to win the girl. His mannerisms and speech patterns portray him more as a stuffy old Englishman from another era. Otherwise, I am looking forward to this series continuing and applaud the author. Well done!

1 star After reading the great reviews i was loooking forward to reading this book. The reviews must of been for another book or written by family & friends of the author. The book was so BORING i skipped paraphraghs the author wrote detail about everything even what each meal consisted of i was waiting to see if he write the recipe, the whole book was written in first person, that got boring very fast. the plot was an interesting concept but not enough to make up for the very SLOW paced book. Parts of the book went into such detail about science, computers & programs, magic i thought i was reading a text book, were a brief description would of been sufficent not several paragraphs on each item, I cannot recommend this book, unless you like 1st person narrative, detail of everything, slow pace, lots of detail about science, computer & magic and no action. This book was free, thankfully and i will be deleting ASAP.
