Eliot Ness: The Rise and Fall of an American Hero
The story of Eliot Ness, the legendary lawman who led The Untouchables, took on Al Capone and saved a city's soul. As leader of an unprecedented crime-busting squad, 28 year old Eliot Ness won fame for taking on notorious mobster Al Capone. But the Untouchables' daring raids were only the beginning of Ness's unlikely story. Capturing the first complete portrait of the real Eliot Ness, Perry brings to life an unorthodox man who believed in the integrity of law and the power of American justice.
