The Night is Dark
The Black Hand is the branch of the Mob that runs New Orleans and is said to be the Confederacy’s largest criminal empire.
The Black Hand controls the flow of nearly all vice into, out of, and all through New Orleans. Every house in Storyville kicks a percentage into the family’s coffers, as do the not-so-secret gambling halls in the Quarter and Tremé. And woe be unto any bootlegger foolish enough to try to operate without the Black Hand’s approval.
