Plunder

The book is a meditation on the fierceness of maternal love and the independent personality of an amazing teenage girl, as well as the perilous state of the ephemeral land around us...breathtaking ending.

Diana Pinckley - New Orleans Times Picayune

Strangers

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

Booklist, Barbara Bibel

Floodgates

"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

Findings

This is a series that deserves more attention than it garners

Library Journal (Starred review)

Effigies

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

Library Journal

Relics

Mary Anna Evans mixes mystery and archeology in a book that's hard to resist. Entertaining and educational, Relics is a great read.

James O. Born, author of Shock Wave, Escape Clause, and Walking Money

Artifacts

…a compelling read…”

Christy Tillery French (Midwest Book Review)

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.
