Dramatization of true events (as told to the author by those he's writing about, Mike Gillith & Frances Salisbury Gillith). I plan to follow this (though not immediately) with Mississippi Mud by Edward Humes.

Places and names of people in this book are somewhat familiar to me, though my parents left Mississippi in mid-1950s, not to return until 1988. Lots of people living here now, of course, still remember all these events. It's interesting to listen to their memories about these times.
Starts slow but gets better as the characters are developed. As my mother (who is now reading the book) said "there are some really sick people out there". Sadly, one of them was a former mayor of Biloxi.
