      HIGH PRIESTESS (Amateur Sleuth-Berkeley, CA-Cont) – PoorSkibbins, David – 2nd in seriesThomas Dunne Books, 2006-Hardcover*** During the 1970s, Warren Ritter was known by his birth name but became a member of the Weather Underground and has been living under cover, now reading tarot cards on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley.

      This is a fairly good mystery with a plot that hearkens back to the late 1960's. Warren is a man who's been on the run ever since a group of radicals with whom he was affiliated blew up a house and people died. The plot of this mystery unwinds Warren's past and fills in what he didn't know at the time. It captures reasonably well what it must be like for someone who is still trying to hide, and works with his emotional side, based on what he thinks he's done. What made it only a "like" for me wa [...]

      A pretty good read. I loved the Berkeley area setting. Most of the settings were very familiar to me (some were fictional). The story was fairly well done although the mystery murderer was not too hard to figure out. Some of the radical asides were fun but may be a little too far left for many readers. His descriptions of Berkeley, Kensington and El Cerrito were right on even though they might anger some residents. The story moves right along. i liked the revenge ending.

      An enjoyable second outing for Warren Ritter. I really enjoy the characterisations in this series as they are very warm and quirky.Warren's first person narration is amusing. Felt it was a solid, if somewhat conventional, murder mystery.I shall be reading more of this series.

      I love these guys - both the author and his character. Intelligent and fun.

      I liked it. The prose is a little full of itself, by the observations of a 60s underground hippie are great fun!

      Further adventures of Warren Ritter, the tarot card reader and 60s radical fugitive. In this book he learns a lot more about himself and his past than he had thought possible.

      I love the Berkeley setting, countercultural vibe, flawed protagonist, and The Church of Satan plot. What I didn't love was the killer, who was easy to spot and too cartoonish.
