5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Look at Biloxi's History
By Addie W on October 24, 2022
Another incredible Grisham book. It's not like his traditional courtroom dramas - this one reads more like a non-fiction historical account of the Mississippi Coast: the immigrants who shaped the area trying to work for a better life, the rise of the seafood industry, in which Biloxi became known as the Seafood Capital of the World, how families banded together after Hurricane Camille.

But the main theme explores the lawlessness and corruption of Biloxi's "Strip" area, the rise of the Dixie Mafia, police corruption, prostitution, strip clubs, drugs, mafia - ALL TRUE FACTS despite Mississippi's reputation for being a Bible-thumping, ultra-conservative state. The coast is definitely a different world, and Grisham does a fantastic job describing the different facets of coast life from the 1940's - 1980's.

The main storyline are two best friends who grew up playing baseball together - gotta love the mention of the still-present Biloxi-Gulfport sports rivalry - (and I love how Grisham always mentions the STL Cardinals in his novels) and how the boys would take trips out to Ship Island, go fishing, camp...but as teenagers, their lives take them down completely different paths as they follow their father's footsteps.

Both immigrant families from Croatia who settled on "The Point," (my fellow Coasties know exactly where this is) Keith's father became a legendary prosecutor, determined to clean up the Coast, and later became the district attorney. Hugh's father became the "Boss" of Biloxi's criminal underground.

I won't share any spoilers! I've read several reviews that say the character development is horrible, that it is difficult to create a strong connection to the characters...I think he did that on purpose to create a sense of uneasiness that would have been felt if you were a part of that seedy underbelly world, not knowing who to trust and always having to watch your back.

There is not a lot of dialog between the characters, which is probably why you'll hear people saying this reads more like a history book. But living here in Biloxi, knowing how true it is that the coast is VASTLY different than the rest of the state, always hearing rumors the Dixie Mafia is still around, seeing the casinos (literally from my back deck) and clubs still flourishing, watching the shrimp boats head out from the bay, experiencing and living with all the different cultures and ethnicities here on the coast...I really enjoyed this book!
