"Details of archaeology, pirate lore, and voodoo complement the strong, sympathetic characters, especially Amande, and the appealing portrait of Faye's family life."

Sue O’Brien, Booklist


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


Evans is completely in control of what she wants us to see, hear, and feel…Fascinating.



the national association for independent booksellers, has recommended Effigies to their readers as a Book Sense Notable Book

Book Sense


An intriguing, multi-layered tale. Not only was I completely stumped by the mystery, I was enchanted by the characters Evans created with such respect.

Claire Matturro, author of Skinny-Dipping, Wildcat Wine, and Bone Valley


…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.
