Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615316794, Paperback)

A well-intentioned reporter becomes a story chaser in love with the joie de vivre of one man, Pat O'Brien. Creator of the Hurricane cocktail. Original Proprietor of the world-famous Pat O'Brien's bar. Godfather of the French Quarter of New Orleans. Three decades after the Dixie Mafia robbed and shot down the O'Brien family, the author cruises in the Dove across Lake Pontchartrain to interview Pat's daughter but finds her suffering inside the family's fortressed estate. Surrounded by moral decay, addiction and unreliable sources, the author, often inebriated herself, struggles to stay focused, and be as respectful a noble savage can be. Sometimes her sarcasm and inner ramblings take control where the facts leave her stranded. Which is where her gonzo adventures begin as a storm brews in pursuit of Pat O'Brien. Hotard builds tension and suspense to a hurricaneous pitch as she follows her mission back and forth acreoss Louisiana to a confrontation as startling as it is explosive. The author's unexplainable love affair to tell this man's story and Pat's intermingling ethereal visits, egging and urging her on, keep the pages flipping, a true gambler's showdown leading to the grave.
