The riveting true-crime account of the heartbreaking murder that shook a Southern city to its corrupt foundation

BILOXI, MISSISSIPPI: After the fatal shooting of one of the city's most prominent couples--Vincent Sherry was a circuit court judge; his wife, Margaret, was running for mayor--their grief-stricken daughter came home to uncover the truth behind the crime that shocked a community and to follow leads that police seemed unable or unwilling to pursue. What Lynne Sposito soon discovered were bizarre connections to the Dixie Mafia, a predatory band of criminals who ran The Strip, Biloxi's beachfront hub of sex, drugs, and sleaze. Armed with a savvy private eye--and a .357 Magnum--Lynne bravely entered a teeming underworld of merciless killers, ruthless con men, and venal politicians in order to bring her parents' assassins to justice.
