Inhaltsangabe

A federal prosecutor in Mississippi for over 30 years, John Hailman routinely worked with federal agents, lawyers, judges, and criminals of every type imaginable. Encouraged by the acclaim for his earlier book, From Midnight to Guntown, he has opened even more of the astonishing cases within the over 35 boxes full of trial stories he carried into retirement.

Hailman gathers colorful exploits of eccentric modern criminals from William Faulkner’s Mississippi, where savvy victims often outwit their criminal perpetrators. Characters range from rich but incompetent drug lords and nationwide gun-runners to bumbling Dixie Mafia kidnappers. The audiobook ends with "Fancy Frauds" in which ingenious con men (and women) offer hilarious but surprisingly sophisticated "special deals" on tax-free gold mines in Mexico and bargain (but bogus) Viagra. Chapters include "Guns, Bombs, and Moonshine Whiskey", "Drug Kingpins Have Troubles Too", "Crime Victims Fight Back", "Mere Theft", and "Fancy Frauds". Written to entertain and enlighten, these stories will delight any fan of the true crime genre and anyone who enjoys good writing and the skill of a master storyteller.
