"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.

Mr. New Orleans


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 him
MR. NEW ORLEANS. Mr. New Orleans tells the incredible story of
Frenchy Brouillette, a redneck Cajun teenager who stole his big brother's
motorcycle and embarked on a 60-year vacation to New Orleans, where
he became a legendary gangster and the underworld political fixer for his
cousin, Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards. Written by Crescent City
native Matthew Randazzo V, the wickedly funny Mr. New Orleans is the
first book to ever break the code of secrecy of the New Orleans Mafia
Family, the oldest and most mysterious criminal secret society in America.
