Publisher's Summary

When vice had a legal home and jazz was being born - the captivating story of an infamous true-life madam.

New Orleans, 1900: Mary Deubler makes a meager living as an "alley whore". That all changes when bible-thumping Alderman Sidney Story forces the creation of a red-light district that’s mockingly dubbed "Storyville". Mary believes there’s no place for a lowly girl like her in the high-class bordellos of Storyville’s Basin Street, where Champagne flows and beautiful girls turn tricks in luxurious bedrooms. But with gumption, twists of fate, even a touch of Voodoo, Mary rises above her hopeless lot to become the notorious Madame Josie Arlington.

Filled with fascinating historical details and cameos by Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, and E. J. Bellocq, Madam is a fantastic romp through The Big Easy and the irresistible story of a woman who rose to power long before the era of equal rights.

    "So predictable"
    Would you try another book from Cari Lynn and Kellie Martin and/or Hillary Huber?

    Nope


    What could Cari Lynn and Kellie Martin have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This book was sooooooo predictable it was beyond boring.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Madam?

    SO many!


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone unless they have a bunch of hours to waste on the most predictable book ever.
