Bestselling and award-winning author Dan Stashower discusses his new book American Demon: Eliot Ness and the Hunt for America's Jack the Ripper. The book, a true story, is a fascinating look at the career of legendary lawman Eliot Ness. Ness, famous for busting Al Capone and his bootlegging empire in Chicago, confronts a case in Cleveland, the Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Road, that kept the city in a state of terror. The case, on which Stashower sheds a startling light, would redefine Ness' storied career.
American Demon received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews.
Books will be for sale and the event will conclude with a book signing.
"When it comes to historical crime nonfiction, Stashower is untocuhable."
- Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author
