Description

THE UNTOUCHABLES HADN'T PREPARED NESS FOR THIS

After slamming the door on Capone, Eliot Ness and the Untouchable: became legend. Now that's in the past, and Ness travels solo through Depression-ravaged America to clean up a battered town called Cleveland...a city in the firm grasp of fear. A rampaging madman has been on the loose for two years, a butcher who has already hacked up a dozen victims without leaving so much as a shred of evidence, with the exception of various, well-placed body parts. This case could cost Ness everything-his job, his reputation, his life-but he can't rest until this brutal murderer is caught. With one rookie cop, a headline crazed reporter and a gorgeous woman who just doesn't know when to quit, Ness goes undercover to hunt for an elusive killer who is almost as gifted with a knife as Ness is with a mystery.

MAX ALLAN COLLINS, a Shamus-winning master of mystery and suspense, has skillfully woven fact and fiction to create a unique mystery series based on the life and exploits of one of America's most memorable heroes, Eliot Ness. Butcher's Dozen is the second book in this exciting series that began with the highly acclaimed The Dark City.
