"MR. NEW ORLEANS by Frenchy Brouillette & Matthew Randazzo V 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
"Take it from someone who would know -- MR. NEW ORLEANS is one of the best and most insightful books ever written about the American underworld. Matthew Randazzo V is the bona fide real deal. When it comes to insider knowledge and understanding of the American Mafia, his only competition are the gangsters and FBI agents themselves. As far as writing talent goes, Randazzo is in a league of his own. Do yourself a favor and buy this book."
–Johnny Fratto, Son of Mafia Godfather Luigi Fratto and West Coast Correspondent for The Howard Stern Show
It is my pleasure to announce the release of a book that I began in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina: Mr. New Orleans: A Life in the Big Easy Underworld co-authored with legendary New Orleans gangster Frenchy Brouillette. Mr. New Orleans is the first book in history to break the code of secrecy of the New Orleans Mafia and tell the true story of the Louisiana criminal and political underworld over the last half-century. This is, without a doubt, the book I am most proud of and personally invested in. You can buy it from Amazon, order an autographed copy from my website MRVBooks, or purchase the book at major bookstores later this month.
I also have book signings scheduled in:
METAIRIE, LA: Saturday, February 13 from 12:00-2:00pm at the Barnes & Noble at 3721 Veterans Boulevard.
BATON ROUGE, LA: Monday, February 15 from 12:00-2:00pm at the Barnes & Noble at 2590 CitiPlace Court.
MR. NEW ORLEANS INFO: Wiseguys called him "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. Mr. New Orleans tells the incredible story of Cajun country boy Frenchy Brouillette’s 50-year-long sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll bender as the New Orleans Mafia’s political fixer and sex racket chief. An equally flashy and debauched cousin of four-time Louisiana governor Edwin Edwards, Frenchy lived a notoriously glamorous and degenerate life in the New Orleans’ French Quarter during the Mafia’s golden age. Mr. New Orleans is the first book 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 … and revealing their potential involvement in the Kennedy Assassination.
