Faye Longchamp, girl archaeologist, is given an opportunity that many fledgling diggers would give their trowels for. She is put in charge of
finding the origins of an ethnic group of people in the Alabama hills. But she's puzzled by the lack of work that has been done on site when she
arrives with her assistant, Joe. As she looks into the scholarly aspects of the dig, she is distracted by the death of Carmen, the oral historian of the
dig. Before she gets very far in investigating Carmen's demise, there's another unexplained death, this of a teenager from the Sujosa community. And
soon, Faye is fighting for her own life against someone who doesn't want the secrets of the Sujosa revealed. A fascinating look at contemporary
archaeology but also a twisted story of greed and its effects. -- Laurie Trimble, Dallas Morning News (9.11.2005)
Faye Longchamp is digging out of her depth....
Praise for Artifacts
"Few corners of Florida remain unmined for crime fiction and now, happily, there's one less...."
Evans'...portrayal of the archeological digs taking place on the islands is factual and interesting.... The locale is wonderfully described and beautifully etched for the reader. A compelling read that holds the reader's attention throughout.

Faye arrives from her Pan Handle island home in Florida to the remote area. . With her is her assistant Joe who is a native American with complete loyalty to her. He watches over her. There is also a team of academics who are assigned to this project. Soon after she arrives, the building where she is sleeping burns up. A co-worker dies in the fire. Faye barely makes it out with taking out an injured co-worker with her. The fire appears to be arson.
Soon another death occurs. It looks like secrets are being guarded. Mary Anna Evans (the author) can really write a tight well plotted mystery that is an original mystery. I did not know who the murderer was until the end. This is a very good series that I will continue with. If you like a well written plotted mystery with an archeology subplot, you should like this series.
I read that Mary Anna Evans has been compared to Tony Hillerman. I have never read a Tony Hillerman book so I don't know if I agree or not. While I was reading the book, Faye Longchamp reminded me somewhat of Anna Pigeon. They have different vocations but they are small strong independent women who take on whatever is needed. They go to different locations in their series also.
Engaging story with good characters. It's one of those books that gets you wondering about the historical aspect and sends you looking for more info.
I'm hooked on this author now. Looking forward to reading the rest of her books. Will probably even buy the paperbacks to keep in my personal library.
