Empire of Sin is a vibrant account of New Orleans in the early
1920s, a time when commercialised vice, jazz culture and endemic
crime formed the background for a civil war that lasted for thirty
years. At its centre the city's vice lord fought desperately to
keep his empire intact. Populated by flamboyant prostitutes,
crusading moral reformers, dissolute jazzmen, ruthless Mafiosi,
corrupt politicians and a violent serial killer, the heady and
dangerous underworld of the Jazz Age is bought vividly to life in
Empire of Sin. This gripping account intertwines personal stories
with the wider history of New Orleans and plunges the reader into
the heart of a city at war with itself.
