Love, corruption, and retribution in New Orleans... ...before hurricane Katrina swept much of that world away. Nostalgically bittersweet and intricately plotted, this novel works on several levels - as a family saga, a political thriller, and an historical noir. A compelling literary experience, and a complement to James Conaway's classic novel The Big Easy. New York Daily News: "If tight melodrama laced with sex, power grabs and corruption is your dish, you'll devour World's End with the relish of a hungry mule in a cornfield... a spellbinder." The Miami Herald: "There is a good deal more to World's End than just politics. Conaway's novel is at once a family chronicle, a thriller, and a brief history of Louisiana. It is filled with authentic detail and atmosphere, told with great skill." New Orleans Times-Picayune: "... fascinating and absorbing... one of those rare you-can't-put-it-down books."
