"a major contemporary Southern writer"

Philip Jason - Southern Literary Review


Evans's excellent series continues to combine solid mysteries and satisfying historical detail.

Kirkus Reviews


"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.



Intriguing...Though Evans has been compared to Tony Hillerman, her sympathetic characters and fascinating archeological lore add up to a style all her own.

Publishers Weekly


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


…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.
