For most of the last hundred years, Biloxi was known for its beaches, resorts, and seafood industry. But it had a darker side. It was also notorious for corruption and vice, everything from gambling, prostitution, bootleg liquor, drugs to contract killings. The vice was controlled by small cabal of mobsters, many of them rumored to be members of the Dixie Mafia. Keith Rudy and Hugh Malco grew up in Biloxi in the sixties and were childhood friends, as well as little league all stars. But as teenagers, their lives took them in different directions. Keith's father became a legendary prosecutor, determined to "clean up the coast", Hugh's father became the "Boss of Biloxi's criminal underground. Keith went to law school and followed his father's footsteps. Hugh preferred the nightlife and worked his father's clubs. The two families were headed for a showdown, one that would happen in a courtroom. Life itself hangs in the balance in The Boys From Biloxi, a sweeping saga rich with history and with a large cast of unforgettable characters.
