In Chicago, Eliot Ness created "the Untouchables," the fabled team of federal agents who finally put Al Capone behind bars. Now, in the fall of 1935, Ness has been moved to Cleveland to become the city's director of public safety. But as Ness starts his new job, a grisly serial killer starts a career of his own. One by one, bodies are found, each one decapitated and dissected with a doctor's skill and a madman's bent. The police are baffled and the population is terrorized over the so-called "Torso Killer." Though it's not his turf, Ness is forced to take over the case, but the more energy he pours into the investigation, the more it takes over his life and even his untouchable reputation. Because in Cleveland, there is only one true untouchable: a killer who has the perfect hiding place and the perfect plan for destroying Eliot Ness.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It's surprising how little we know about Eliot Ness considering the popularity of "The Untouchables". This is a fictional account of actual events.
