Summary NoteSummary: Al Capone was sent to the federal penitentiary for tax evasion, not for his mob activities. The daily job of fighting Capone's mob organization on the streets of Chicago fell on the shoulders of Ness and his Untouchables. Borroel presents the original narration typed out by Ness, which served as the basis for the 1957 book written with Oscar Fraley.
