From 1910 to 1919, New Orleans suffered at the hands of a serial killer. The story has been the subject of short stories, novels, and the television series American Horror Story. But the full story of gruesome murders, accused innocents, public panic, the New Orleans Mafia, and a mysterious killer has never been written—until now. The Axeman broke into the homes of Italian grocers in the dead of night, leaving his victims in a pool of blood. Iorlando Jordano and his son Frank were wrongly accused of one of those murders; corrupt officials convicted them with coerced testimony. Miriam C. Davis here expertly tells the story of the search for the Axeman and of the exoneration of the Jordanos. She proves that the person suspected of being the Axeman was not the killer—and that the Axeman continued killing after leaving New Orleans in 1919.

Just after the First World War, the party atmosphere returns to the Big Easy, but someone looks to spoil it. Grocers are being murdered in the dead of night by someone grabbing their axe and hacking them to bits in their own cushy beds. The pattern for each murder is the same: a piece of the door is removed for entry; the axe is borrowed on the property; and the assailant aims straight for the head. Why? How could he fit through that piece in the door? Though the culprit is never revealed, speculations abound, which Geary presents here with his usual gusto.

New Orleans has always managed to create a mix of the mysterious and the macabre in our minds. As a city, it is different; its jazz, its location and openness to the elements, its cosmopolitan community. At the turn of the last century, the French influence was still strong. A quarter of the population spoke the Gallic language, and French newspapers were still popular. But these Northern Europeans were not the only significant immigrant group to reside there. In 1915, Atlantic storms blew into the vulnerable city, and floods threatened lives and buildings. But still the city stood, tall and firm, against all that nature could throw against it. Yet if it could withstand the onslaught of the natural world, the same was not necessarily true of the human one. Back in 1910, a particularly savage crime took place, a vicious, merciless assault with an axe There is something almost primordial about such an attack. On this occasion, the victim survived, and in a city where racial tensions were rife, where child labour still flourished, the confrontation went largely unnoticed by the wider community. Then, in the early summer of 1911, another incident took place and this time the assault proved fatal. Joe Davi was, in all probability, the first man to die at the hands of the Axeman of New Orleans.
