Publisher's Summary

Tim Donovan is a Catholic priest with a guilty conscience - though not in the way you’d guess. And Katherine Donne is a Parisian socialite who long ago kicked her self-respect to the curb - for good and for ill. And much closer, we have a group of men whose fortunes, graying temples, and positions in life are distinguished and enviable. But their morals? Anything but. And that’s where Evan Reed comes in. Evan (short for Evangeline) is a highly principled political operative with an imperfect past, tasked with uncovering compromising material on a rotten judge up for nomination to the US Supreme Court before he can be rushed through confirmation.    

Evan knows it won't be simple to find damaging information against the judge because he's been vetted many times before. When Evan pulls the string after an interview with a cryptic madman, she finds herself struggling to solve a puzzle that gets more complex by the hour. And where crime, money, conscience, and greed come together, danger is sure to lurk. In this sequel to Dust, Ann McMan takes the listener on an intense journey into a world that lies just beneath the thin veneer of civilization - a world teeming with power struggles and warped desires, and a subculture of promises made, kept, and broken.    

As Evan pushes further into peril, her personal life sparks into flame with the increasing presence of the ravishing Julia Donne, a book publisher with a progressive bent and troubling questions about her late father. McMan’s specialty of intertwining a hot romance into heart-pounding suspense just keeps getting better and better.

Ann McMan scores a 10!

This book continues the story of Evan and Julia. The As Evan investigates a prospective Supreme Court nominee the information she uncovers effects Julia’s life. It gives a more in depth look at Julia and Evan’s relationship. Stevie and Father Tim add just the right amount of humor and distraction! Of course, Christine Williams does a fantastic job with not only the laugh out loud moments but the serious ones too. Thanks for the excellent story and narration!

Excellent!

I loved Galileo. So nice to spend time with Evan and Julia in Chadds Ford, PA. and everywhere else their adventures take them. The topics covered in the book and uncovered by Evan are so relevant. Loved the suspense and the romance. I'm ready for book three. Christine Williams does an excellent job with the narration.

Not her best

I’ve read a lot of McMan and I love the Jericho characters snd the banter back and forth between the characters. This story was a bit long in the development of the crimes and not as uplifting in mood as her other stories. I still am fine with the credit used but probably not one I will ever listen to a second time.

Excellent though some grim content

My new fave author and narrator duo. Hope there will be another book in this series. These characters need to live on for more adventures in fighting for love and justice together!

I love this book!

I love everything about this story! Both of the Evan and Julia’s stories. I love the mystery I love how they talk to each other! It reminds me of how my wife and I talk to and tease each other. And Christine Williams does an amazing job of bringing everyone to life! I think we need more Evan and Julia!

I wish you would have left politics out of the story

Great story, superb characters. Good chemistry all around. Political opinions were a turn off. Great narration.

Superb narration of another great Ann McMan book.

Every time I read (or listen to) a book by Ann McMan I finish thinking that it is one of my favorites. Loved this well written/narrated crime story. Glad to have it in my library so I can enjoy it again.

Great 2 part mystery romance

Really needs to be read / listened to in order.
Part one introduces the characters and sets the theme for the gritty part two.

Enjoyed the story and the performance by Christine Williams.

So much more than a romance with a HEA.
