520    New Orleans, a century ago: a city determined to reshape 
       its destiny and, with it, the nation's. Downtown, a new 
       American music is born. In Storyville, prostitution is 
       outlawed and the police retake the streets with maximum 
       violence. In the Ninth Ward, laborers break ground on a 
       gigantic canal that will split the city, a work of 
       staggering human ingenuity intended to restore New 
       Orleans's faded mercantile glory. The war is ending and a 
       prosperous new age dawns. But everything is thrown into 
       chaos by a series of murders committed by an ax-wielding 
       maniac with a peculiar taste in music.  The ax murders 
       scramble the fates of three people from different corners 
       of town. Detective William Bastrop is an army veteran 
       haunted by an act of wartime cowardice, recklessly bent on
       redemption. Isadore Zeno is a jazz cornetist with a 
       dangerous side hustle. Beatrice Vizzini is the widow of a 
       crime boss who yearns to take the family business 
       straight. Each nurtures private dreams of worldly glory 
       and eternal life, their ambitions carrying them into dark 
       territories of obsession, paranoia, and madness.  In New 
       Orleans, a city built on swamp, nothing stays buried long.
