Summary
This vibrant account of New Orleans in the early 1920s tells a remarkable story of the city's 30-year-long civil war, which pitted the elite against its powerful and long-entrenched underworld of vice, perversity and crime. At its centre is Tom Anderson, the undisputed czar of the city's vice district, who fights desperately to keep his empire intact. Surrounding him are flamboyant prostitutes, crusading moral reformers, dissolute jazzmen, ruthless Mafiosi, venal politicians and one extremely violent serial killer, all battling for primacy
