After slamming the door on Al Capone, Eliot Ness and the Untouchables became legend. Now that's in the past and Ness travels solo across Depression-ravaged America to clean up a battered town called Cleveland. 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.

Butchers Dozen by Max Allan Collins: After cleaning up Chicago, Eliot Ness and his band of Untouchables have moved on to Cleveland which is in the grasp of a madman who has already cut up at least a dozen victims leaving body parts strewn across the city. Ness has to go undercover and risk his own life to stop the butcher of Cleveland and save the life of a gorgeous woman who doesnt understand the word stop. The usual first rate Collins applied this time to the roaring 30s.
