Description
"This thriller, which blends voodoo, gangsters and jazz into an intoxicating mix, is based on a true story."--Sunday Mirror -- A serial killer stalks New Orleans, threatening to strike again unless the citizens follow his twisted demands... In a town jammed with voodoo and gangsters, a sense of intoxicating mystery often beckons from the back alleys. But when a real serial killer roams the sultry nights, even the corrupt cops can't see the clues. That is, until a letter from the Axeman himself is published in the newspaper, proclaiming that any home playing jazz music will be spared in his next attack. Such brass invites a chase, and not just from the cryptic detective running the show. The New Orleans of 1919 is a place like no other, where the corruption runs deep and the bourbon rolls smooth, and control of this city is a prize only a fool would give up. Based on a true story, The Axemanbrings to life a vibrant, volatile New Orleans filled with as much desperate ambition as utter fear.
