A NOVEL ABOUT THE GODFATHERS OF NEW ORLEANS

During the "Roaring Twenties" of the last century, New Orleans (or "Nawleens" as pronounced by its Cajun and Creole citizens) was a complex hotbed of politics, corruption and so much more. It was filled with colorful, seemingly larger than life characters like Governor Huey "Kingfish" Long who was in cahoots with the two major crime families in the French Quarter. It is of historical note that the Mafia established itself in New Orleans a full generation before it took root in New York or Chicago.

It was the place where Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton gave birth to the Blues and Jazz. It was a place, despite Prohibition laws, that gave its citizen's more than they needed of moonshine and other alcohol courtesy of the Cajuns in the Bayou Country.

It is the tale of a crusading doctor and her friend, the soon to be famous author, William Faulkner, who aided her in a relentless and reckless crusade to clean up the Mississippi River. It was the place of Mardi Gras and murders and madness: a place of racial conflict and violence and voodoo.

It was a place visited by Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Seigel and J. Edgar Hoover and a host of other unique characters all destined to intersect and clash over just who did control The Crescent City.

Most of all, it is a love story about why the people of that city were so fond of its near magical vitality and food and all that Jazz!! Les Bon Temps Roule...Let the Good Times Roll...as the blood flowed freely in the Big Easy.
