Description


"MR. NEW ORLEANS is a rollicking, disturbing ride through the underbelly of a bygone New Orleans, lined with moments of dark, side-splitting hilarity. If you're a fan of James Lee Burke, drop what you're reading and pick this one up. In an era when popular wisdom tells us T.V. has stolen all depth from the literary true-crime narrative, Matthew Randazzo has found a way to beat that trend mightily; he's gone straight to the source and captured the singular, confounding voice of the New Orleans' mafia's top political fixer with fast-paced, riveting prose and a fine journalist's eye for detail." CHRISTOPHER RICE, New York Times Bestselling author of THE SNOW GARDEN and BLIND FALL Wiseguys called him "the Keith Richards of the American Mafia," and JFK hero Jim Garrison denounced him as, "one of the most notorious vice operators in the history of New Orleans" ... but you can just call Frenchy Brouillette MR. NEW ORLEANS. MR. NEW ORLEANS tells the incredible story of Cajun country boy Frenchy Brouillette’s 50-year sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll bender as the New Orleans Mafia’s political fixer and sex racket chief. Frenchy enjoyed a glamorous, debauched life in New Orleans’ French Quarter, during the Mafia’s golden age. MR. NEW ORLEANS is the first book to break the code of secrecy in the New Orleans Mafia Family, sharing the shocking true story of America's oldest and most mysterious crime family … and revealing their potential involvement in the Kennedy Assassination.
