NPR recently aired the interview with Douglas Perry discussing ELIOT NESS: The Rise and Fall of an American Hero .
The book has also received some raved reviews:
Those are quibbles. In the big picture, “Eliot Ness” is fast-paced and full of detail that’s well-researched but not overbearing. Smart, authoritative, and bristling with challenges to the status quo: It has more than a little in common with its remarkable subject.—The Christian Science Monitor
“Perry is a fine writer and an insightful one, giving us the Ness story straight, without the bells, whistles and Tommy guns ablaze. He does justice to his subject, a complicated and self-destructive human being, but one who was also admired by many. He is a tragic rather than heroic figure, and Perry nails him with style and compassion.”—Chicago Tribune
