Bullet Proof


Author: Max Allan Collins
THEY COULDN’T BUY NESS OR BREAK HIM…
SO THEY TRIED TO KILL HIM.


Cleveland’s a solid union town, but organized crime has put the squeeze on labor with an extortion ring that doesn’t stop at murder. Everyone’s on the take—everyone except Eliot Ness, who sets a brilliant trap for the big boys. Ness is no stranger to this city of steel and smoke, and the former Untouchable knows its secrets the way he knows the streets of Chicago. Ness is hell-bent on cleaning up his adopted home, but he’s a sitting duck for a triggerman with a tommy gun who plans to blow Ness and his pals sky high.

AMERICAN, AND UNIQUELY HIS OWN.”
—Andrew Vachss, author of Strega and Blue Belle
