Eliot Ness is famous for leading the Untouchables against the notorious mobster Al Capone. The legendary Prohibition Bureau squad's daring raids are only the beginning. Ness' true legacy reaches far beyond Capone and Chicago. This biography followers the lawman through his days in Chicago and his little known, but greatest achievement, time as the public safety advisor for Cleveland, where he rid the city of corruption, at a time when the mob and police were one. It presents the complete picture of the real Eliot Ness, fearless but shy, who battled crime everywhere.
