Street Magic is the first novel in a series of urban fantasies based on different magic traditions, but with a twist. Moreover, these stories are all hard-boiled mysteries. This novel invokes the tradition of Tir Nan Og, the land of the Irish Faery.

Scott Russell is an unemployed detective agency operative in San Francisco who has been hired by an old college chum, Ed Thayer, to find his runaway son, Danny. however, Danny has absolutely no desire to return to his father; he only wants who wants to go home to Fairyland. His wishes seem to be coming true when he meets a young woman, Robin, with pointed ears and the ability to use glamour to conceal or disguise herself and others.

Robin is a scatterling, a drifter from Tir Nan Og, who moves in and out of the human's world as the mood strikes her. However, she and her fellow scatterlings can no longer cross back to Tir Nan Og without the assistance of a Full Blooded Sidhe. When Danny sees through her glamour, she begins to think that he is a Full Blooded changling, a Keymaster, and her ticket home if only he can remember how to open the gallitrap.

Scott is assisted in the case by Liz Gallegher, a reporter on the Midnight Star, who is tired of making up crazy articles and wants to properly investigate a real story for a change. They are greatly helped in their efforts by a fantasy novel, The City Under the Hill, which tells of the restrictions placed on the gallitraps between Tir Nan Og and the world of humans.

Recommended for Reaves fans and anyone who enjoys a good fairy tale with a different ending.

I found this book a few years ago in the library. I read it. I LOVED it. And then, like a good library person I turned it in, thinking that I would be able to read it again some day. The brilliant colors of its imagery are still emblazoned on my mind many years later. Unforunately, the next person to check out the book did not feel obligated to return it at all, the library never purchased another copy, and now it has gone out of print. If I could get my hands on a copy of this book today I would snatch it up soooooooo fast..... Be warned, however, that it has extensive profanity. Wouldn't want anybody to be offended. = )

Boring, boring, boring. I wanted to like this story so very badly. There was just nothing of interest there. It seemed to drag on and on. To me the characters were not well developed. Didnot feel a connection with any of them.

Loved this book when it first came out. Wish I could find it again to re-read. Hopefully they will release it for the Kindle.

This wonderful book, set in the city San Francisco, is of exciting adventure with a run-away teenage boy, and many other characters that you learn about through out the book, the whole thing is almost directed like from a movie point of view. Great book, wonderful for young-adults, though, yes there's profanity in it... but, it's only neccessary for details... READ IT!
