Scarface and the Untouchable

Al Capone, Eliot Ness, and the Battle for Chicago

About the Book

A THRILLING MAGNUM OPUS ON AMERICA’S GREAT CRIME EPIC

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. Written with novelistic pacing and underpinned by groundbreaking research, Max Allan Collins and A. Brad Schwartz's Scarface and the Untouchable delivers—at last—the definitive account of the “Battle for Chicago,” the iconic struggle between the mythic yet real combatants who have captivated the world for 90 years.

Critical Praise

Scarface and the Untouchable revolutionizes our understanding of Al Capone and Eliot Ness beyond myths and misinformation with groundbreaking research and effortless storytelling that will thrill historians and general readers alike. Collins and Schwartz provide a master class in crafting a dual biography, and deliver both singular historical figures what they have been deprived of for so long: Justice. An indispensable exercise in Prohibition-era excitement.” —MATTHEW PEARL, bestseleling author of The Dante Club
