Part of the NYTimes bestselling Notorious USA series!
Louisiana – famous for its Mardi Gras, spicy cuisine, and Dixieland jazz – is also the scene of some of the most notorious crimes in the country. Bestselling authors Ron Franscell and Rebecca Morris write about a sultry, Southern beauty who proved to be a deadly hitchhiker; the bloodiest day in New Orleans history captured on live TV; how life for a young woman changed just because she answered a knock at her front door; and a genteel wife and mother who left her husband to die in an alligator-infested bayou.
