       Additional Information  
      Between 1934 and 1944, Elliot Ness and his agents were in Cleveland, investigating the Kingsbury Run (or Torso Killer) case, in which decapitated and bloodless bodies were found along the Kingsbury Run train tracks. In one of the most ineffective manhunts in history, Ness raided and burned out Cleveland's shantytowns in his efforts to find the killer who left behind twelve victims, only three of which were identified. Unwilling to concede defeat, one Cleveland cop continues to follow the bloody trail and discovers thehorrifying truth--that the law is not dealing with the mobor a serial killer--but with a community of vampires!
    * In the tradition of best-selling author Anne Rice * Set in the era when Elliot Ness was in Cleveland, The Flesh, The Blood, And The Fire offersa whole new perspective on the still unsolved Kingsbury Run murders * A new musical "Elliot Ness in Cleveland" is scheduled to open on Broadway shortly after therelease of this book
