Leading the "Untouchables," Eliot Ness had risen to fame in 1931 for putting Al Capone behind bars. Late in the summer of 1934, however, pieces of a woman's body began washing up on the Lake Erie shore, and soon more bodies followed, all dismembered in gruesome ways. As Ness zeroed in on a suspect—a doctor linked to a prominent political family—powerful forces worked to thwart his quest for justice. Ness has become something of a modern folk hero, but this biography restores the humanity of this pioneering investigator up against what proved to be his toughest case.

"A deeply researched book which reads like a thriller and sheds new light on a poorly understood modern American icon. Crime history doesn't get a lot better than that."—Sunday Times (London)
