Title: Butcher's Dozen
Release: October, 1988
The real story of crime-fighting 'Untouchable' Eliot Ness.
Television and movies have long glorified Eliot Ness, the real-life Federal agent who became a legend when he brought down Al Capone. But Ness has never been realistically portrayed until now.
Two-time Shamus winner Max Allan Collins shows an older Ness, now working out of Cleveland, Ohio in 1935, confronting one of the most baffling cases in American true-crime history...the famous Torso slayings.
Here you'll find Collins at his absolute best depicting Ness as a complex public servant who often went about solving his cases in ways that sparked bitter controversy.
