Oss bureaucratic boundaries and take over the case working with a dogged street smart detective and making enemies every step of the way The energy Ness pours into the investigation the it takes over his life his marriage even his untouchable reputation Because in Cleveland there is only one true untouchable a killer who has the perfect hiding place and the perfect plan for destroying Eliot NessFrom the first primitive use of forensic psychology to a portrait of America battling the Great Depression and a man battling his own demons Nemesis is a masterwork of mystery murder and vivid dynamic historical suspen I was really disappointed in this book After all lots of things for me to like Depression setting in Cleveland no less a serial killer and a wonderful if flawed heroSo what s wrong here I ve never read Bernhardt but he manages to make the business of serial killing well boringExcept for Eliot Ness s speeches to the press and the public the dialog is uninspired And the suspected murderer Just a stick figure not the bogey man who s been suspected of also perping the Black Dahlia murderThis sounds so mean spirited maybe I was expecting too much but bottom line is this the book was perhaps rushed to publication as much of the writing was lack luster and uninspired Too bad as a good editor could have brought it around
