If you are a legal thriller fan as well as a John Grisham fan, well, here it is in this book. It’s what he writes best. But, wait a minute and not so fast judicial breath. FYI, he does occasionally write non-legal fiction. For example, he wrote book titles like Sooley, Playing for Pizza, Skipping Christmas, and others. But never mind all that. Here is a legal fiction thriller book that includes almost every conceivable crime. Murder, vice, mobsters, illegal gambling, illegal booze, skin, prostitution, and a little bit more. You got your good cops and bad cops. FBI on the hunt, state police policing the local police, local cops on the dole from the mob, and much more. Then you have not only bullets, but you get bombs and arson as well. Everything including even cock-fighting. All of this starts with two high school buddies where one goes one way and the other his own way. It all began on the Coast of Mississippi in the town of Biloxi. A town with a questionable if not dubious past.

Library of Congress annotation:
“For most of the last hundred years, Biloxi was known for its beaches, resorts, and seafood industry. But it had a darker side. It was also notorious for corruption and vice, everything from gambling, prostitution, bootleg liquor, and drugs to contract killings. The vice was controlled by small cabal of mobsters, many of them rumored to be members of the Dixie Mafia. Keith Rudy and Hugh Malco grew up in Biloxi in the sixties and were childhood friends, as well as Little League all-stars. But as teenagers, their lives took them in different directions. Keith’s father became a legendary prosecutor, determined to “clean up the Coast.” Hugh’s father became the “Boss” of Biloxi’s criminal underground. Keith went to law school and followed in his father’s footsteps. Hugh preferred the nightlife and worked in his father’s clubs. The two families were headed for a showdown, one that would happen in a courtroom. Life itself hangs in the balance in The Boys from Biloxi. Read this book soon. It will thrill your socks off. It’s a roller coaster of sequential scary and heart stopping events. Boy howdy, it’s good reading.
