Two worlds collide in this amazing, true story of a double murder that took a decade to unravel.
Biloxi, Mississippi was founded as a real estate scam to lure settlers to the New World. 300 years later, the legacy of corruption and scandal still permeates the city. Yet it is also a bastion of southern gentility, with picture-perfect postcard neighborhoods evoking the stately grandeur of the Old South.
The 1987 murder of respected attorney Vince Sherry and his politically active wife Margaret opened a unique window into the conflicting worlds of the city. DEADLY ODDS IN BILOXI traces the ten-year odyssey to see justice done, as the Sherrys' eldest daughter persevered where the police gave up, eventually uncovering evidence that linked the murder to notorious gangland figures and Sherry's former partner and eventual Biloxi mayor Pete Halat. It is a saga of corrupt police and the Dixie Mob, million-dollar scams and a woman determined to fight to the end for what is right.
Go deep into the heart of Dixie for a fascinating real-life crime drama, and a unique portrait of the antebellum city of Biloxi.
