Kurzbeschreibung

When it comes to finding dirt, Evan Reed is the best in the business. She’s a dust-buster—a paid operative hired by political campaigns to vet candidates. She’s also a foul-mouthed, cranky ex-Catholic, attempting to raise a fourteen-year-old daughter on her own.

When she’s hired to investigate the background of a squeaky-clean and charismatic senator who might just be the next president, the last thing she expects to uncover is a murder. Evan’s life is further complicated when she meets the senator’s reclusive wife—who happens to be hiding some dust of her own.

Mehr über den Autor

From her early days, growing up on the western frontier of Pennsylvania, Ann McMan found creative ways to exercise her gift for fiction. Her first literary endeavors were modest--mostly confined to aphorisms scrawled on cracked pavement with colored chalk.

"FREE UPPER VOLTA!"

But as the years passed and her skills increased, she branched out into literary nonfiction--best exemplified by the abstracts that follow.

"Please excuse Ann from gym this week; she has contracted a virulent case of Norwegian Scabies."

Sometimes, the performances were less effective.

"Please excuse Ann from this week's field trip to the IXL Cottage Cheese Creamery. She is suffering from acute bouts of ague and malaria--which, combined, render it impossible for her to travel by bus."

[Ann was unaware that outbreaks of malaria were extremely rare in the Allegheny Mountains. Four days in after-school detention helped her cultivate a greater appreciation for the rigors of research.]

College at an indifferent liberal arts institution taught Ann that understanding subject/verb agreement was not enough to secure her fame and fortune. After graduation, she got a job driving a young adult bookmobile--and spent her days piloting the great rig across the dusty back roads of rural North Carolina. Her duties included making certain that the mobile library always contained at least six copies of Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, visiting the county juvenile detention unit (it was a great way to catch up with her brothers), and showing public service films about safe sex to pre-teens at 4-H Clubs all across her part of "The New South."

Soon, the allure of higher education coaxed Ann back to school. For the past three decades, Ann has worked at a succession of premier institutions, designing marketing and advancement materials that promote, promulgate, and extol the benefits of indifferent liberal arts education.

Somebody has to do it.

All this time, she continued to write. And when, at the ripe old age of thirty, she realized that she was not like other girls, the great world of lesbian literature opened its arms, and provided her with a safe haven in which to grow and learn about her new identity. She will forever be indebted to those literary pioneers who had the courage, the talent, and the temerity to gift us all with an art form of our own. Ann's first and subsequent attempts at writing lesbian fiction have been heartfelt attempts to pay that great gift forward.

Her themes are absolutely timeless--they are built around the things that make the world go 'round, like love, money, and modern class distinctions. She writes to what we all respect: the genuine, the authentic, and the deserving. Yet she mocks those things that we all despise, like the affected, the pretentious, and the malicious. Ann McMan wields a metaphorical church key that opens up a world that is broader than two women in love, richer than a small cadre of supporting characters, and more colorful than her colloquial dialogue. She is smart, funny, and unapologetic in her prose, and has the confidence never to talk down to her readers. And, because she understands that for women, the romantic hope and even fantasy that lives inside each and every one of us is a reality that complicates and colors life to an astonishing degree.

As an author, Ann isn't afraid to give voice to cruelty, exploitation of the vulnerable, and soul-deep suffering, but she is remorseless about any kind of falseness, in feeling, or manner or conduct. Women and men who try to be what they are not get skewered within in her pages, held up for ridicule such that they condemn themselves out of their very own mouths. And all of them, through her deliberately expansive domestic circles, are metaphors for those things we all recognize in our own everyday lives, no matter where or how we live.

Ann McMan is the author of four novels, JERICHO, DUST, AFTERMATH, and HOOSIER DADDY--and the story collection SIDECAR. She released the holiday omnibus collection, THREE in December of 2012,

She is currently writing BACKCAST, the further adventures of the CLIT-Con 13 from SIDECAR's "Bottle Rocket, and PATRIARCH, the third book in the JERICHO series.

Ann won a Golden Crown Literary Society Award for SIDECAR in 2013, and has been named a finalist in the Lesbian Romance category of the 2014 Lambda Literary Awards for HOOSIER DADDY.

4.0 von 5 Sternen political intrigue 31. Dezember 2011
Von snott - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Nice twists and turns in this political thriller. It was certainly as good as some of the big names in this genre. The lesbian romance is also well written and I appreciated the complexities of the relationship.
I like a good ruthless main character and hope the author writes more using her. Personally, I would have liked a bit more action however, I enjoyed the book. I think most people will enjoy it and even if you may have read it elsewhere I hope you consider buying a copy to support the author.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dust keeps you in suspense 23. Dezember 2011
Von Janet D. Quiton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
What an awesome second book, the characters are well written, the plot moves with twists and turns and keeps you guessing and on the edge of your chair. You can't wait to read the finish, then are saddened that the story is completed. Ann, please keep writing as it would be a shame not to share your great story telling talents from us your fans. I look forward to your next book with much anticipation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hoping for A second Installment 11. Februar 2012
Von Carol A. Bailey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This was an excellent second novel from Ann McMan full of political intrigue and a variety of plot twists that keeps the reader guessing. Each of the characters have their own complexities with varying degrees of "badness" making it difficult to figure out who the good guys are in the story.

There were several times when I thought I had a handle on who the "bad guy" was and then there would be a new twist that would point me in another direction. There were also several characters I would like to see again, obviously I'd like to know what happens with Evan Reed and Julia Donne, but I'd also like to see Maya/Margo to learn more about her and what exactly is she involved in.

I will definitely be keeping an eye out for any other novels by Ann McMan.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Engaging story 23. Januar 2012
Von ADavis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This was a decent book. It had a nice touch of mystery and intrigue to keep my attention. It was a pleasant surprise. She avoided stereotyping - the hero to the rescue was not the 6ft strapping butch-thank you for that. A hero who uses her brain, and whose methods are not squeaky clean.
The 'fade to black' sex scenes were a little silly and used too often. Now granted her scenes sure as hell beats the gynocologist exams that many writers use in their sex scenes, but some middle point would be nice.
A sequel would be nice.
The Margo really was interesting, I'd like to read more of her.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Home Run 12. Januar 2012
Von LJ Dirig - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Ann McMan has crafted another classic. Kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat. A political thriller about the manufacturing of a candidate and the characters that revolve around them. The plot ties in nicely with the political environment that is currently heating up. Makes you wonder about the players behind the recent candidates... The two main characters are strong, independent women with entirely different upbringings. Classic Yin Yang that keeps you rooting for them to get together despite the obstacles that are thrown at them at every turn. As usual with one of Ann's novels we also learn a little bit more about her knowledge as a red and white sommelier. I'm creating a fine wine list. Not to mention, I got one of the most interesting recipes that I've ever made from this novel. I learn so much from her stories. Can't wait for the sequel. All I can say is MORE!!!!!!!!
