Luke Williamson thought that things were going just about according to plan: He and his partner owned a couple of river-boats and were making their mark on the run between St. Louis and New Orleans. Then the Mary Justice went down off Natchez.MoreLuke Williamson thought that things were going just about according to plan: He and his partner owned a couple of river-boats and were making their mark on the run between St. Louis and New Orleans. Then the Mary Justice went down off Natchez. Williamson had lost not only the boat but his closest friend. The banks were getting ready to foreclose, the insurance company was looking for a way out of paying. Mid-South Insurance went about things the right way: They hired Masey Baldridge to investigate the claim. Of course, they expected him to place the blame on the boats pilot. But Baldridge had other ideas. He knew that something wasnt right, and he knew that hed find out just what was wrong . . . as soon as he had another drink. The fact that shortly before Williamson had worn blue and Baldridge was nursing a wound received in a skirmish with Union troops near Selma made no difference to him. The same couldnt be said for everyone along that stretch of the Mississippi.
