Spunky PI Sydney Bryant returns to solve a 15-year-old murder case with the able help of retired cop and partner-in-crime-investigation Xavier Walker in August Nights: A Sydney Bryant Mystery, by the Shamus Award-nominated Patricia Wallace. In 1985, Xavier found a young bride dead on the side of the road, and everything about the case has continued to haunt him so when the missing suspect turns out to have been killed that day, too, the duo decide to find out the truth, even as the killer comes closer and begins to threaten them as well.
