Abstract:

Former prosecutor, Penn Cage, is now mayor of his hometown, Natchez, Mississippi. Penn is urged by old friends to restore the town to its former glory, but in its quest for new jobs and fresh money, Natchez has turned to casino gambling. Five fantastical steamboats float on the river, and rumour has it that the Magnolia Queen has found a way to pull the big players from Las Vegas. With them comes an unquenchable taste for one thing: blood sport, and the dark vices that go with it. When a childhood friend of Penn's, who brings him evidence of these crimes is brutally murdered, the full weight of Penn's failure to protect this city hits home.
