By 1973, no one is safe from Billy Birt's Dixie Mafia. Not even family.

Billy Birt and the "Dixie Mafia" were running strong. Black pills were being brought in from Mexico and sold for huge profits, bootlegged whiskey was being sold all over the South, and a string of arson and murder-for-hire jobs continued to attract more and more attention from law enforcement. But it was Birt's new partnership with Billy Wayne Davis that really changed things. The two men were robbing banks, hitting underground gambling houses, home invasions, you name it. And Davis was paying Birt to kill for him just as the Inner Circle of the Dixie Mafia was.
