About High Crimes on the Magical Plane
Imagine the surprise of Samantha Brennan, scam psychic and fake ancient deity, when she encounters the real thing. That’s right ⎯ an honest-to-heavens Celtic goddess, hidden beneath the steely exterior of FBI Special Agent Annabelle Haggerty. And more than goddesses abound in the everyday world, Samantha discovers; there are leprechauns posing as mischievous schoolboys, banshees patrolling parks, and gods working as lounge singers. How had Samantha missed all those super-heroes living right before her eyes on LA’s mean streets?
Yet their powers might not be enough when the City of the Angels falls prey to a crime spree the likes of which it’s never seen. When America’s sweet and sexy movie star, Molly Claire, is taken hostage, no one could imagine how she’d be made the centerpiece of a gangland siege, as worlds collide in a struggle that brings the city to its knees. But if Agent Annabelle Haggerty and her family of deities are no match for the Demon of Darkness that Annabelle believes is masterminding L.A.’s own Armageddon ⎯ what chance does a poor little fake like Samantha have?
“…delicious; a funny, pell-mell romp of an adventure rife with psychics, FBI agents and clowns.”
— Diana Gabaldon, NYT Bestselling author of the Outlander series
