Mississippi Mud: Southern Justice and the Dixie Mafia

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.

Publisher's Summary

Now updated with explosive courtroom details...

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.

    "Good Book, Terrible Narration"
    Would you try another book from Edward Humes and/or Alex Paul?

    I definitely like Edward Humes as a writer. Mississippi Mud is a basic, yet enjoyable True Crime book. I've seen TV coverage of the crime upon which the book is based over the years and found the book an entertaining addition to the TV coverage.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Edward Humes? Why or why not?

    I read Mississippi Mud years ago and liked it, so when I saw it available on Audible, I decided to purchase it because it's been updated - which not a lot of authors do when they release books in audio format that were published years back. This book is a basic, solid, true crime novel.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This book wasn't an easy listen. Unfortunately, the narrator paused when he shouldn't have and the mispronunciations of names occurred through out the book. When the narrator mispronounced a name or word, sometimes he just went back and repeated the sentence. Where was the producer and/or editor when this occurred? This could've and should've have been worked out in production prior to publishing the Audible version. The performance really detracted from the overall experience.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    A TV movie, yes, but a film? Likely, not. I have seen and read coverage of the case since the late 90s, so it would just be basic entertainment for me.
