June 2002
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars My second read of the Ness series April 14 2012
By T. J. Reilly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Dark City" was lacking in a sizzle I usually associate with the Heller series. "Butcher's Dozen" has the sizzle. The steps taken to end the career of a killer of people we call homeless today kept my attention. Half way through the book I realized that the major difference between the Heller and Ness books lies in the absence of humor or sarcasm in Ness and the unbridled irreverence of Heller, who, as a fictional character, isn't burdened by any factual limits on his personality.
