On a quiet September afternoon, Lynne Sposito learned that her parents, Vincent and Margaret Sherry, had been shot to death in their Biloxi, Mississippi, home. One of the citys most prominent couples -- he served as Circuit Court judge and she was runnng for mayor -- the Sherrys were mourned by a community. But for a stunned and grieving daughter, the nightmare was hust beginning.Racing to Biloxi for answers, Lynne found the police investigation in chaos. The only sure lead was that the Sherrys murder somehow was connected to the Dixie Mafia, a predatory band of criminals who ran Biloxis beachfront hub of sex, drugs, and sleaze known as The Strip. Lynne, armed with a savvy private eye -- and a .357 Magnum -- set out to accomplish what the authorities could not or would not do: hunt down her parents assassins and bring them to justice.Pulitzer Prize-winner Edward Humes delivers a shocking and bizarre tale set against a teeming underworld of merciless killers, ruthless con men, and venal politicians.Mississippi Mudportrays how one womans steely obsession for the truth shook a city to its foundation -- and nearly destroyed everything she loved.
