This book follows Eliot Ness’ career and what he’s most known for. I found myself doing my own research through the entire book. I want to read more books about the Butcher. He’s considered America’s Jack the Ripper. The only reason I can think this is is because the case was never solved. This serial killer made Jack the Ripper look tame in my eyes. I feel like I don’t know enough about the case to make a full opinion on it. Even though it was referenced completely in this book. It mainly highlighted Ness’ involvement in the matter. It also highlighted other parts of his career as well. Including leading a team that became known as the Untouchables. There’s a movie or television shows about the team. I’m interested to see if it’s streaming so I can watch it. All in all, I really enjoyed this book. I really enjoyed developing the hunger to want to research and know more because of this book. I loved it so much that I bought a copy for my family to read.
