As the Roaring Twenties come to a close, it’s a great time to live, work, and play on the Mississippi Coast. But beneath the calm surface of the warm Gulf waters, a storm is brewing at the height of Prohibition; a squall that will shatter the lives of many Coast residents if law enforcement ends the transportation of contraband liquor. The practice is known as rumrunning—and the demand for booze is staggering. The highly anticipated sequel to Candace Cox Wheeler’s Cradle in the Oak, Squall in the Gulf spans the country from Chicago to New Orleans and back to Biloxi continuing the story of heroine Carrie Burns and husband David Tauzin, but it’s the next generation who take center stage in this thriller featuring appearances by celebrity gangster (and one-time Ocean Springs resident) Al Capone, and jazz great Louis Armstrong.

Candace Cox Wheeler is a fourth generation Biloxi, Mississippi, native and a partner in the law firm of Wheeler and Wheeler, PLLC, where she has worked alongside her husband, David, since 1981 and raised two sons. She is a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi and a graduate from the University of Mississippi School of Law. Squall in the Gulf is her second novel.
