Reviews

"We mystery lovers who've enjoyed Artifacts and then decided that Relics was even better may not believe this but Ms. Evans has done it again, and Effigies is the best one yet. Again, she makes a lesson in our past a fascinating read."

-- "Tony Hillerman, New York Times bestselling author"

"In all three of Faye Longchamp's adventures, Mary Anna Evans has given us insights into little-known aspects of America's past. As an archeological tour alone, the book would be worth reading, but it's the fascinating and complex characters that give the story life and vibrancy."

-- "Rhys Bowen, Anthony and Agatha award-winning author"

"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"

"Archaelogist Faye Longchamp (Relics) with her friend Joe Wolf Mantooth join a dig in Neshoba County, Mississippi, to excavate a Choctaw sacred mound. Soon they realize that on the adjacent property sits an undiscovered mound and that the man who owns the land is about to bulldoze it into the ground. When he is murdered, Faye and Joe become suspects as well as amateur investigators. Starting with racial tension between blacks and whites, Evans adds Native Americans into the mix and comes up with a thought-provoking tale about people trying to live together."

-- "Library Journal"

"Like Randy Wayne White in his Doc Ford novels, Evans adds an extra layer of substance to her series by drawing readers into the fascinating history of ancient American civilizations."

-- "Booklist"

"A captivating combination of archeology, Native-American tales, romance, and detection. A must-read for those so inclined."

-- "Kirkus Reviews"
