RR: Three books on Dixie MafiaFebruary 25th, 2010 by Perry
I recently read three books on the Dixie Mafia: “Dream Room: Tales of the Dixie Mafia” by Gulf Coast attorney Chet Nicholson; “Mississippi Mud: Southern Justice and the Dixie Mafia” by Edward Humes; and “The State Line Mob: A True Story of Murder and Intrigue” by Buford Pusser biographer W.R. Morris.
These three books will take you from the Tennessee line to Mississippi Gulf Coast with trips through Las Vegas, Atlanta, and Angola Prison in Louisiana. From prostitution to illegal gambling to various scams and murder, a seedy cast of characters make for an entertaining read - sometimes painful when you remember that these are true stories. You can read my recap of the three books in the Madison County Journal: Perry / Three books reveal Dixie Mafia
