"Delightfully erudite"

Kirkus Reviews


This contemporary mystery is drenched with Florida history and with gothic elements that should appeal to a broad range of readers.

Booklist, Barbara Bibel


"Evans's fifth series mystery…reveals her skill in handling the details of a crime story enhanced by historical facts and scientific discussions on the physical properties of water. Along with further insights into Faye's personal life, the reader ends up with a thoroughly good mystery."

Library Journal on Floodgates


…a charming mixture of history, mystery and romance.



a thought-provoking tale about people trying to live together.

Library Journal


Evans' second archeological mystery is every bit as good as her debut, Artifacts (2003)....Faye makes a compelling heroine, and she's supported by an interesting array of suspects....Transcripts of Dr. Martinez's interviews scattered throughout the narrative provide important clues for the discerning reader.

Publishers Weekly


…an affecting atmospheric mystery filled with unusual and engaging characters.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Merry Band of Murderers

...A Merry Band of Murderers is a winner....Three [stories] are particularly noteworthy: Mary Anna Evans' Land of the Flowers, Jeffrey Deaver's The Fan, and Val McDermid's Long Black Veil.... A Merry Band of Murderers is an admirable anthology of short stories by a skilled company of mystery authors.
