Author: Pat Dunlap Evans
Genre: Mystery / Thriller
Out and In starts at a gallop when stunning beauty and amateur cellist Marie Donovan is jailed for killing a lecherous opera maestro. She swears she’s being framed, but only her best friend and lawyer believe her.
Marie is no stranger to trouble. Months before, her pro-quarterback husband Cole sails to his death off a Dallas high-rise, many say in shame after his money scheme leaves Marie on the hook for millions. Widowed and ruined, Marie pins her hopes on attorney Ryan Ingles, one of Cole’s football pals.
Marie, Ryan, and legal team fly to exotic islands in search of clues to Cole’s missing millions. As the tropics weave a romantic spell, a corrupt financier threatens Marie’s bliss, leaving her to wonder if she’ll ever clear her name and find her place in this world.
Reporter Terrance Nichols’s column, “Out and In,” provides a heavy dose of speculation to keep you guessing. Just when you think you know who killed the notoriously promiscuous maestro, you may be surprised. This legal thriller has the twists and turns you’d expect in a best-selling mystery, plus a romantic and heartfelt journey you can savor along with the novel’s beautiful female sleuth.

About the Author:
Pat Dunlap Evans was born in Michigan but her family moved to Texas, where she lived in San Antonio for a few years, and later Dallas. She was Lieutenant in the Golden Debs at South Oak Cliff High School and an honors scholarship recipient at Southern Methodist University. An early marriage and the birth of three children plunged Pat into the world of motherhood until the kids were old enough for Pat to go back to school herself. She completed her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English at University of Missouri, Kansas City. The post-grad degree offered an emphasis in creative writing, putting Pat on a path to fiction writing.
Pat has published three novels. After a long marriage, Pat stressed her way as a single mom through a career in advertising and marketing, with positions in Dallas and Austin. A second marriage to Dr. Bill Evans enabled Pat to focus on her true love of writing.
To fulfill a bucket-list dream, Pat and Bill made the leap in 2020 to the Big Island of Hawaii, where she is a member of the Hawaii Writers Guild. The pair enjoy golf, sunsets, snorkeling, exploring, and visits from family and mainland friends.
