This fiction novel, Road to Marrakech, is a murder mystery and love story about the struggles of Jefferson Davis Steward. Born in South Alabama with a clubfoot, to an alcoholic, part-time street preacher father, he was determineed to be more than a sharecropper. His early life in the depression days of the 1930's was spent riding in box cars and sleeping in hobo jungles. At age sixteen he left his abusive, drunken father, passed out in Houston and rode the first train out. That train happened to take him to New Orleans. Playing the harmonica on the streets, mopping floors in bars, pulling himself up by his so-called boot straps, he became a private investigator. Jeff will take you with him into the sights and smells of the Vieux Carre (French Quarter) of New Orleans. In Casablanca he meets the beautiful Claudette. Visit the Medina and the intriguing Kasbah with Jeff, as he makes friends with the four hundred pound proprietor of Sheikdom du Jacque. In Marrakech he finds more than he was expecting, including adventure, murder, and romance with a beautiful lesbian. The story takes place in pre World War II Morocco, when the Nazi Germans, Vichy French and Italian Fascists were in North Africa.
