The Levee: A Novel of Baton Rouge, by Malcolm Shuman

After many years away, true-crime author Colin Douglas returns home to Louisiana, to revisit both an unsolved murder and his childhood memories.  Based on a true story, this novel is a quick read with a moody sense of place.  The murder is the hook, but the exploration of how adults deal with their past is the real story here.  You don’t have to be a big mystery reader to enjoy this one.

RATING: * * * A good read
