Phoenix Books is proud to present "MR. NEW ORLEANS: The Life of A Big Easy Underworld Legend," the scandalous tell-all memoir of Frenchy Brouillette. This notorious Cajun gangster was the first man in history to break the code of secrecy in the New Orleans Mafia Family, sharing the shocking true story of America's oldest and most mysterious crime family... revealing their potential involvement in the Kennedy Assassination.

"MR. NEW ORLEANS" tells the incredible story of Cajun country boy Frenchy Brouillette's 50-year sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll bender as the New Orleans Mafia's political fixer and sex racket chief. Frenchy enjoyed a glamourous, debaucherous life in New Orleans' French Quarter, during the Mafia's golden age. He partied with friends like Dean Martin, Jim Garrison, Liberace, Jerry Lee Lewis, with countless Mafia legends.

"'MR. NEW ORLEANS' is a rollicking, disturbing ride through the underbelly of a bygone New Orleans, lined with moments of dark, side-splitting hilarity. If you're a fan of James Lee Burke, drop what you're reading and pick this one up. In an era when popular wisdom tells us T.V. has stolen all depth from the literary true-crime narrative, Matthew Randazzo has found a way to beat that trend mightily; he's gone straight to the source and captured the singular, confounding voice of the New Orleans' mafia's top political fixer with fast-paced, riveting prose and a fine journalist's eye for detail." -Christopher Rice, Bestselling Author of "Blind Fall" and "Light Before Day"

Wiseguys called Frenchy "the Keith Richards of the American Mafia," and JFK hero Jim Garrison denounced him as, "one of the most notorious vice operators in the history of New Orleans"... but you can just call him "MR. NEW ORLEANS."
