    Eliot Ness is famous for leading the Untouchables against the notorious mobster Al Capone. But his true legacy reaches far beyond that. Ness inspired courage and loyalty in men twice his age, forged law-enforcement innovations that are still with us today, and earned acclaim and scandal in his professional and personal lives. And through it all, he maintained an unwavering belief in the integrity of the law and the basic goodness of his fellow Americans.
