  THE MEN OF NESS—Eric Linklater— Farrar & Rinehart ($2). Readers who smiled over Author Linklater's Juan in America (TIME, March 4, ), might expect another picaresque comedy from him, but The Men of Ness is as different from his first book as a Soglow cartoon from a Rivera fresco.   The book deftly weaves in and out of a dizzying number of storylines involving Hennington's colourful characters: a millionaire octogenarian, a powerful golf course owner, a still-lactating year old plus accountant/prostitute, a well-endowed gay waiter, an attractive out-of-towner with nefarious plans, etc. etc.4/4(4).

  A book, The Untouchables, was released only a month after his death and followed his work in incarcerating Al Capone. This led to a series of movies and shows inspired by Eliot Ness, many of which painted him as a type agent who single-handedly ended gang violence in : Brionne Frazier.   This book is one of the few accounts we have of the '20s gangster era. The book recounts Eliot Ness's experiences as the leader of a team of nine men who were assigned the job of cutting off Al Capone's main sourse of income-illgeal booze.5/5(5).
