Mary Anna Evans, popular mystery writer, turned her skills in another direction to pen Wounded Earth, her first thriller. Read it here, right in your browser.

Bestselling author Mary Anna Evans, a well-known popular mystery writer,  has 13 titles on Amazon and 11 in the Kindle store.  Those include the popular Faye Longchamp mysteries with their remarkable archeological, historical and scientific detail.  Evans applied her experience and talent to the thriller genre with Wounded Earth.

Here's the set-up Mary Anna Evans' thriller, Wounded Earth:

Larabeth McLeod has beauty, money, several patents, a Ph.D., a successful environmental firm, and some very old secrets. When a man with the uncomfortable name of Babykiller begins stalking her, terrorizing her with stories of her darkest days in Vietnam, stories no one else knows, she feels compelled to fight back...until he exposes her most tender secret of all by threatening the daughter she has never met.

She turns to private detective J.D. Hatten for help, breaking five years of separation and silence between quarreling friends. And then Babykiller shows his true capabilities. He is the head of an illicit business offering but one service--moving cargo worldwide for criminals who need their drugs or cash or smuggled goods shipped safely and anonymously--so he is capable of putting anything anywhere. He quietly explains to Larabeth, a well-known environmental executive, that he can even put defective gauges in nuclear power plants, and he will, just to get her attention. If she goes to the police for protection, people will die. Lots and lots of people will die. And one of them will be her daughter.
Larabeth and J.D. are just a normal man and woman, up against a babykiller. But then, Babykiller doesn't know who he's dealing with...

WOUNDED EARTH is the first thriller by award-winning mystery writer Mary Anna Evans, author of 13 novels and short stories on Amazon, 11 of them in the Kindle Store, including ARTIFACTS, RELICS, EFFIGIES, FINDINGS, and FLOODGATES, all available on Amazon in print, large-print, and audio editions. 

“Evans always incorporates detailed research that adds depth and authenticity to her mysteries, and she beautifully conjurs up the Micco County, FL, setting. This is a series that deserves more attention than it garners.” –Library Journal on Findings  

I'm the author of the award-winning Faye Longchamp archaeological mysteries: ARTIFACTS, RELICS, EFFIGIES, FINDINGS, and FLOODGATES. The sixth in the series, STRANGERS, will be published in October.

I'm a a chemical engineer by training and license, with a degree in engineering physics thrown in for spice, but I love reading about history and writing about an archaeologist. Truth be told, I'm a little jealous of Faye and her archaeological adventures.

I enjoy reading, writing, gardening, spending time with my family, cooking, and playing my 7-and-a-half-foot-long monster of a grand piano. My cat helps me write, so I should probably put his name on my books. Check them out here on Amazon or at your favorite bookstore.
