As something of a Gallic shape shifter myself, not to mention an inveterate scallywag, I found Oliphant and Yarbrough's Jean Laffite Revealed well-nigh impossible to put down (except, of course, for obligatory flourishes with my cutlass and the odd, lusty draught of rum).

Reading like the best detective fiction and historical romance rolled into one, Jean Laffite Revealed is a lazy front porch visit with old friends who have tales to tell. In an engagingly casual style, this mother-daughter team of history sleuths presents an impeccably researched, persuasive argument upending centuries-old legends and rewriting the history of one of America's most intriguingly elusive characters.
