The Untouchables is theripping true story of the team of men who broke the back of the vicious Chicago crime mob and its stran. The UntouchablesApone but has novelty value as Ness s final words on that exciting period in his career I Confessions of an Air Ambulance Doctor gave this book 5 stars even though it had a lot of language It was an incredible read I would have thought it was a fiction action thriller if I didn t know better Absolutely amazing that this is all trueUPDATE still just asood the second time around I had always wanted to know what it was really Like During Those Times To during those times to how the war was fought by those agents asigned to taking down Copone and his henchmen What is also interesting to learn about those times was how much money those special interesting to learn about those times was how much money those special were paid by the Mr. Jelly's Business government compared to how much money Copone and his men were making the difference is huge Great cop and robber book of its time and I can see why each Eliot and his team of men went on to do bigger and better things in their lives Very interesting first hand account of the bootlegging business in Chicago in the 20s and 30s Easy read read it in one day Interesting to see how Capone etc were making so much cash they could offer bribes of 100000 or a year a highly respectable salary even today 35 stars This highly sanitized and at times fictionalized account of Ness formation of The Untouchables washostwritten by journalist Oscar Fraley who informs us in the Epilogue that he published the book after Ness died while the manuscript was in proofs It reads like a 1950s detective police procedural the perfect source material for the Robert Stack tv series It was pretty clear from the opening pages that the book wasn t meant to be an objective look at Ness or his comrades but rather a work to Praise And Ultimately Memorialize And and ultimately memorialize and his time in Chicago His personal failings and foibles of which there were many are not even acknowledged much less lossed The book ends with the imprisonment of Capone so Ness patchy post Untouchables life is not discussed nor his eually rocky marriages The most famous moments from the classic De Palma film which is a much better work are not in the book the Union StationOdessa steps homage shoot out Nitti being thrown off the roof in the book he just oes to prison and the cheesy Let s do some ood line In the case of the film De Palma s fictionalized mythologizing far exceeds that of the source materialWith all those many caveats this is still an enjoyable read much on the level of watching a tv series that captures your attention well enough to pass the time for a couple evenings Not necessarily worth tracking down unless you enjoy true crime reads although the level of truth here must be taken with a rain of salt and perhaps have already read better secondary sources A solid bedtimeairportwaiting room book for true crime readers. Bles should leap onto the bestseller lists when released as a major motion picture in June starring Robert DeNiro and Sean Conne.

Aphy I ve heard that Ness exaggerates his own role in the events he describes I don t know whether that s true or not But the narrative is smoother than real life Ness radiates a kind of all conuering Corps Values: Everything You Need to Know I Learned In the Marines goodness enhanced with clever tactics and the of an eually incorruptible Good conuers evil because wellood is just so The Sun Shines Over the Sanggan River goodWe can fault Ness for self aggrandizing myth making But setting that aside it s fun reading Ness is a man on a mission He rejects the corrupt peace that the police and the criminals most notably of course Al Capone have reached The police force and prohibition agents are ruined by bad apples the fatal moral weakness that allows Capone and others to rule Chicago in the twenties and thirties Ness devises a simple plan a small select suad with no bad apples a team whosereatest strength is its moral incorruptibiityAs the team THIEME Atlas of Anatomy: Head and Neuroanatomy goes to work busting breweries and distribution networks the bootleggers realize that this is a differentame They can t buy victory they ll have to outfight and outmaneuver Ness s team But Ness s team is as determined to bust them as they are to make money and build power When the bootleggers adopt new tactics Ness and his team figure out new ways to defeat them It really is a ood story and the ood uys winI do have to mention one odd departure from the facts In The Book Betty the book Betty appears in the book as Ness s irlfriend and in the book s Epilogue Ness s co author Oscar Fraley notes that she later became his wife There is no mention of Edna Staley who was actually Ness s wife during the time covered by the book Ness and Betty Andersen did marry but only after his divorce from his second wife Evaline Ness in 1946 We can only suspect that this cleaned up his divorce from his second wife Evaline Ness in 1946 We can only suspect that this cleaned up of his personal life is not the only cleaning up of the facts in the story that Ness tellsThe story makes better reading if we accept that the truth may have suffered a bit or than a bit in the telling I was entertained than educated by The Untouchables which is hardly surprising when you consider that Ness was a publicity monger who recognized the value of a Dept. of Reproductive Management good story and enhanced the truth whenever it fell flat There are phone threats drive by shootings and murdersalore despite the fact that the son of one Untouchable Barney Cloonan told Ness biographer Paul Heimel that they were rarely shot at Although Ness and the Untouchables did not take down the Capone mob as claimed in the popular media they did damage the famous mobster s bootleg income inconveniencing him financially Ness died just before The Untouchables hit print making it a haunting as well as intriguing read It s not an objective look at the dying years of Prohibition and the downfall of Al Glehold on the nation told by the man who orchestrated the effort Enormously successful as a long running TV series The Untoucha.
