A Mystery Writers of America "Grand Master"--author of the gangster classic Road to Perdition, long-time Dick Tracy writer, and multiple Shamus Award winner--teams with an acclaimed rising young historian, in this riveting, myth-shattering dual portrait of Al Capone, America's most notorious gangster, and Eliot Ness, the legendary Prohibition agent whose extraordinary investigative work crippled his organization.
