The Levee re-released

The Levee has been re-released through MysteriousPress.com and is available for both Kindle and Nook.

A true-crime writer returns home to solve the mystery that haunted his boyhood

After witnessing an execution, true-crime writer Colin Douglas starts having nightmares of himself as a boy, alone by the levee, trapped in the mud of the Mississippi River. Each night, the dreams grow worse, becoming horrid recreations of the day his childhood died.

In 1959, Colin and three friends went camping on the levee, across from the tumbledown old Windsong plantation. When one of the boys disappeared, Colin went searching for him, and was approaching the old estate when he saw what appeared to be a ghost. The next day, he learned a woman had been murdered in the area—an unsolved crime that has haunted him ever since. Decades later, he attempts to solve this forgotten cold case, raking up something even dirtier than the muddy bottom of the Mississippi.

“[Shuman] knocks one out of the park with . . . this compelling, deftly written story.” —Booklist, starred review of The Levee
