    New Orleans in the 1920s was a hotbed of vice and organized crime. Peopled with flamboyant prostitutes, crusading moral reformers, dissolute jazzmen, corrupt politicians, ruthless crime bosses and a serial killer known only as the Axman, the city was in the grip of a 30-year turf war. Blending personal stories with the wider history, this book plunges the reader into the violent, colourful and intoxicating milieu of New Orleans at the height of the Jazz Age.
