A frightened city turned to its safety director, the legendary Eliot Ness, who focused more energy and manpower on this investigation than any previous police action in Cleveland. But the killer, who left the corpses of at least twelve victims in and around the Kingsbury Run area of Cleveland, was never arrested or even officially identified." "In the Wake of the Butcher is based on police reports, autopsy protocols, personal interviews with the descendants of victims and investigators, and unpublished manuscripts and is illustrated with maps, rare crime scene and morgue photographs, and newspaper photos. The author dispels some long-held rumors about the crimes and confirms others. In the Wake of the Butcher presents its compelling case and leaves readers to come to their own conclusions about the notorious Cleveland murders."--BOOK JACKET."
