Summary, etc.:
Empire of Sin is the remarkable story of New Orleans' thirty-year war against itself, pitting the city's elite against its powerful and long-entrenched underworld of vice, perversity, and crime. This early 20th century battle centers on Tom Anderson, czar of the city's Storyville vice district, who fights desperately to keep his empire intact as it faces onslaughts on all sides. Prostitutes, reformers, jazzman, Mafiosi, politicians, and one serial killer all battle for primacy in a wild and wicked city unlike any other in the world.
