Publisher's Summary

Time is not on Faye Longchamp’s side. She and her husband Joe are working near the mouth of the Mississippi, researching archaeological sites soon to be swamped by oil. The Deepwater Horizon disaster has morphed her run-of-the-mill contract job into a task that might swamp her fledgling company. It isn’t helping that an injured babysitter has left Faye to work with a toddler underfoot.
An adolescent girl is drawn to Faye, perhaps because she idolizes the confident archaeologist. Young Amande is bright and curious, but a poverty-stricken life on a houseboat with an eccentric grandmother doesn’t seem like a good way for Amande to get the education she deserves. Then when the girl’s grandmother and her no-account uncle are murdered, her prospects worsen. With only two known relatives, neither of whom is much more respectable than the dead uncle, Amande seems destined for neglect or worse.
Soon, Faye and Joe find themselves among people fighting hard for Amande’s pathetic inheritance: a raggedy houseboat, a few shares of stock, and a hurricane-battered island that’s not even habitable. Pirate-era silver coins are found and disappear. Shadowing it all is the fact that the murderer is still on the loose. But why should Faye be surprised by such shady events, here in these watery lands settled by the greatest pirates of them all? And the oil slick looms, because this country is still being plundered, after all these years.

Mary Anna Eveans needs to write more!

Would you consider the audio edition of Plunder to be better than the print version?

Hard to say, but I have more time to listen--housework, driving, boring meetings, walking--so I'm more likely to listen than to read.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Plunder?

The setup of the mystery is always the best. Her words make a picture of the place and the people and the culture. I love the Gulf coast and an addicted to Mary Anna Evan's characters and writing style. I sit and wait for her next novel to come out.

What about Cassandra Campbell’s performance did you like?

The tibre of her voice is perfect for Faye-the main character and she is an outstanding actor using her voice to be the other characters as well as the narrators.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but it wasn't possible.

Any additional comments?

I'm so glad that Mary Anna Evans decided to put her books on audio. I enjoy them either way, but I get to them quicker this way. Keep up the excellent work Ms. Evans and Audible!
