REVIEW: The Boys from Biloxi

If you’re looking for a legal thriller or a fast-paced crime story… this is not it. The story spends many generations and tells us about the history of Biloxi through the eyes of two families. One profiting from the seedier side of things and the other looking to build a community of law and order. These two families know one another and through the decades they clash over and over summoning towards a final showdown.

The first third of this book was extremely dense and probably could’ve been trimmed quite a bit. About midway you start to see where things are headed, the pace picks up and you find yourself wanting to pick a side. The last third is a bit more action packed and entertaining. This is certainly not one of the Grisham stories of old but I think it has all the elements of a great organized crime story. If you enjoyed Black Mass and the hunt for Whitey Bulger, this one will appeal to you.  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks to Doubleday for the gifted copy. All opinions above are my own.

Do you have a strong sense of pride about the city/town you’re from? What’s your hometown known for?
