On New Year's Eve in New Orleans, 1972, Mark Essex began one of the most violent and deadly sniper attacks on policemen that any American city had ever seen. Before it ended one week later, hundreds of armed police and an assault helicopter would be called to a burning downtown hotel to battle phantom gunmen who refused to be killed.

Herndon does a good job describing the event that happened. But I was struck by the impression that the police response was chaotic and out of control most of the time. More people lost their lives because of this. The Howard Johnson's building was turned into a shooting gallery and they're probably still digging out bullets. One thing that was not brought out was how did the gunman get so much ammo into the building ? It's a good book that points to the changes law enforcement has made when dealing with this type of situation.
