(From the publisher):
After slamming the door on Capone, Eliot Ness and the Untouchables 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.
