Publisher Comments:

Cleveland: 1935. Eliot Ness, fresh from his legendary Chicago triumph over Al Capone and associates, set his sights on Cleveland and went on a crusade that matched, and sometimes even surpassed, his past accomplishments. Dismembered body parts have started washing up in a concentrated area of Lake Erie Sound. Their headless torsos have left no clues to their identity or the reason for death. Elliot Ness and his colorful gang of "The Unknowns" chased this killer through the underbelly of Cleveland for years. As far as the public was concerned he was never captured. But what really happened is even more shocking.

This award-winning collection includes a historic photo essay of the actual murders. Torso was nominated for an International Horror Guild award for best graphic story and for 3 International Eagle Awards.

Usually, true crime novels leave me a little cold -- the facts in the cases are interesting, but as novels they usually leave a lot to be desired in terms of character involvement and plotting. This is a notable exception; it works both as a true crime account and as a horror story. My only problem with it is that Bendis doesn't provide a bibliography or afterword as such, beyond some reference photos, so it's very difficult to discern what was true and what was invented or extrapolated for the purposes of drama. It's probably best to read this more as a novel than as a true account, however.
