The New Orleans adventures of a young novelist covering the trials of the Governor of Louisiana, with digressions on smoldering nightclubs, jazz-crazed bars and other aspects of life in the tropic zone.
A compelling evocation of idiosyncratic Southern political and judicial usages carried on in a tropical climate that, the author suggests, determines the pace of human activity and fosters eccentricity. Her Southern politicos, "drawling, cigar-smoking, silver-haired gents," with a high tolerance for human frailty, are vividly drawn as are a jazz-crazed assistant prosecutor and the seedy trial buffs and hangers-on who prefer a corrupt official to a boring one.
