Between 1918 to 1919 a serial killer ran rampant throughout New Orleans. His weapon of choice? The axe. He didn't spare women. Or children. Or even men. There was only one kind of person who could be sparred from the blade of his axe: the home of a person playing jazz music. At least eight people were brutally murdered. Who could have been responsible for this crime, and how was the Mafia connected? Did a corrupt police department intentionally leave this case unsolved? Come, if you dare, as Absolute Crime takes you on the hunt for one of the most brutal killers who ever lived.

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.

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.

NEW ORLEANS, 1919. For nearly a decade, a ruthless killer has prowled the streets of this city, breaking into homes in the middle of the night and hacking people to death with an ax. He leaves few clues. Even his motives are unclear. The police are baffled. The killer even writes a letter to a local newspaper--echoing Jack the Ripper from three decades earlier--and claims to be a "demon from hottest hell." But Detective Colin Fitzgerald, a wounded veteran only recently returned from the Great War, is prepared to do whatever it takes to catch this killer. What Fitzgerald is not prepared for are the shocking secrets his investigation will uncover, secrets that stretch to the top levels of the Police Department and City Hall, and reach back decades to the assassination of a legendary police chief and to the murder of Fitzgerald's own father.

Ignaz J. Reilly - ein 'Wirrkopf von Gottes Gnaden, ein fetter Don Quijote, ein perverser Thomas von Aquin' und in der Tat einer der originellsten Helden, den die amerikanische Literatur je hervorgebracht hat. Eines Tages nun wird dieser sich bisher stoisch jeder produktiven Betätigung verweigernde Fleischberg von seiner Mutter gezwungen, sich nach einem Job umsehen. Reillys berufliche Odyssee führt ihn von einer heruntergekommenen Hosenfabrik - in der er das Problem der Ablage mit Hilfe des Papierkorbs löst und eine Revolte unter den schwarzen Arbeitern anzettelt - ins French Quarter von New Orleans, wo ihm ein fahrbare Wurststand anvertraut wird. Aber auch dieser Beruf bietet keine Zukunft, denn als Hot-Dog-Verkäufer ist er sein bester Kunde. Ignaz trägt sich indes bald mit neuen Plänen - Er wird eine Partei gründen, eine Partei der Sodomiten.
