Add magic to misdeeds and you get Crime Spells, an anthology of crime stories with the underlying premise of magic. Some of these criminals are magical, some are not; some motives are magic-related, some are merely human; sometimes the human judicial system prevails; sometimes a magical one and sometimes the wrongdoer gets away. In each of these sixteen tales, well-known and little-known science fiction writers have successfully crossed genres, mixing magic with mayhem.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Sixteen original stories about magic-fueled crimes and those who investigate them. When magic is used for criminal purposes, all sorts of ethical and logistical questions arise beyond the realm of everyday law and order.

Now, sixteen top tale-tellers offer fascinating new stories of those who commit magic crimes, those who investigate them, and those who prosecute them. From a young woman who uses out-of-body excursions to research paranormal crimes to a bookie who's been paying for hex protection against magical interference to an artist who does divination through his sketched visions which may lead to a murderer's undoing, here are powerful tales of magical crimes and punishments.
