Christine Wiltz is a native New Orleanian. She's written five books, her latest
being "The Last Madam: A Life in the New Orleans Underworld," which is Chris'

House" takes as its point of departure the murder of a New Orleans police officer
in 1980. A murder that my then reporting partner, Dean Baquet, and 1 covered,
