Mystery writer Annette Dashofy kept the story in her back pocket, trying to balance the personal nature of the situation with her instinct that it was worth sharing. A few years ago her mother, who passed away in January 2017, called Dashofy and said, “I think I've done something wrong.” Dashofy's mother had let some men claiming to be from the water company into her home.
Sign up for one of our email newsletters. Freddye Stover and her bands play shows throughout the region. Here are some upcoming shows:To hear Freddye Stover sing the blues is to be transported to another place and time. It could be a smoky Chicago nightclub in the 1950s, or a campus in the '60s when blues found favor with college students, or a Southern juke joint in the 1970s, such is her feel for the music. But to hear Freddye Stover sing is to know only part of her story — a very small part.
Scandinavian mysteries and thrillers have been in demand since the success of Steig Larrson's “Millenium” trilogy. Writers from that region, including Jo Nesbo, Karin Fossum and the late Henning Mankell, have emerged. But there's not been a true blockbuster like “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” or any of the other books that featured the characters Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist. Lars Kepler's new book, “The Sandman” (Knopf) might change that.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
