From Library Journal:

After his "Untouchables" exploits, Eliot Ness became the Cleveland director of public safety in 1934. He launched a mostly successful campaign against crime and corruption, but his record was somewhat marred by a series of gruesome, motiveless murders which were never solved. The "Torso Murderer" was responsible for at least 13 victims--ten never identified and all decapitated and dismembered. Since Ness was not a homicide detective, his Cleveland years are peripheral to the "Torso" case. The latter will be of some interest to crime buffs, but there is just not enough compelling material in this slim volume for a general audience.
