Publisher's Summary

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 for national office. She’s also a foulmouthed and cranky ex-Catholic - attempting to raise a 14-year-old daughter on her own. 

When she is hired to investigate the background of a squeaky-clean and charismatic junior 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 seems to be hiding a few secrets of her own.

If you like Hoosier Daddy...

This audio book has a similar feel to Hoosier Daddy. There is no question it is the same author. Overall, the story is good. I didn’t love the characters - they could use a bit more development, but I don’t regret buying it. If you want a light hearted, not too serious mystery with a lesbian twist, it is worth giving it a listen. Christine Williams’ narration is excellent as always.

Excellent!

I loved Dust. I already knew the story by heart, having read it several times before. Christine Williams takes this novel to a whole new level. Loved Evan's character. Maybe Ann McMan could find another investigation for her? Hopefully? Excellent narration.

Needs a dialogue Coach

This is a fairly good story, but the stilted and excessive dialogue ruined the listening experience for me. I enjoyed Jericho a great deal but each subsequent book from this author has been a disappointment.

Dust Buster

May I say I never heard of a dust buster! I knew folks checked backgrounds however this was a bit too up close and personal! So we have moved from platforms and budgets to who one is as a person and what they are capable of! This was a book that taught me something - love at first sight - we are truly humans with our own frailties and don’t mess with Evan! A good read for me! Really enjoyed this book and the story line was great — this is my first book by Ms McMan - and it won’t be my last!

Worth it

I would listen to anything Ann McMan writes. And Christine Williams is awesome narrator for her books! One thing, she doesn’t do British accent well at all! But that is a minor glitch to the story itself!!!

Disappointed

Boring and predictable with weak or little story line. Using god damn to emphasize a point repetitively was not effective and actual offensive making the tone harsh rather than pleasant.
