I picked this up as a lark after seeing the cover, and have to say it was a thoroughly enjoyable read. PIECE OF MIND offers a nice twist on a sensational murder case, DOUBLE JEOPARDY is a well crafted story of a Wiccan Troubleshooter who would give Uma Thurman in the 'Kill Bill's a run for her money (what a concept!) but my personal favorite is MIXED MARRIAGES CAN BE MURDER. The author of MMCBM has obviously seen too many episodes of 'Hart to Hart' and 'Remington Steele', but he adds a VERY nice twist to the concept, and does so in a clever way without being silly. I laughed out loud at the very last line in the story, but won't give it away. Buy this one...it's the perfect solution to a rainy afternoon. When is MURDER BY MAGIC II coming out?????

I picked up this book only because Mercedes Lackey had a short story in it and I try to read everything she's published. As a general rule I'm not a big fan of mysteries, but these short stories were almost all so good that I wished they were full blown novels. There were only two or three exceptions, but all the writers were wonderful and I have a list of new ones to read now. My favorite thing about the book, though, was that each of the stories is only a handful of pages long. So I could read one in bed and not have to worry about staying up all night because I didn't want to stop reading like normal. Funny, sweet, scary, surprising, these stories cover anything you can have a desire for.

A fun, fast, enjoyable book consisting of crime stories with an otherworld theme.
