In 20 novels since 1987, we’ve seen James Lee Burke’s most popular character, Dave Robicheaux, not only grow older, but also more jaundiced, more philosophical, more introspective. “I didn’t like to speak that way to a woman or, for that matter, to anyone,” Robicheaux says after a confrontation with a female suspect. “Age does that to you.”Of course, Robicheaux has reason to view the world a difficult and sometimes incomprehensible place. His third wife, Molly, is dead, killed in a car accident.
Last year, Margaret Coel called it quits in her Wind River mysteries series after publishing the 20th book. Well … sort of. The Vicky Holden-Father John mysteries may be a thing of the past, but Coel resurrects Vicki for a novella set in both Denver and Wyoming. Joining Vicki is Catherine McLeod, the protagonist of a Denver mystery that Coel wrote some years ago.
In a chance conversation with her father some 20 years ago, Alice Echols discovered that her grandfather had been a notorious cad. He had operated a building and loan in Colorado Springs, and through profligacy and fraud, he bilked thousands of depositors out of their savings. The man had been behind one of Colorado’s most sensational scams. That was in the 1920s. Unsophisticated middle-class savers back then poured their money into financial scams.
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".
