February 11, 2012 – Book Review – Dust by Ann McMan

Dust by Ann McMan
Intrigue/Romance

Product Description from Amazon.com

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.


Review
4 out of 5 Stars

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.
