Paul Robsky and Oscar Fraley's "The Last of the Untouchables" was re-released in the wake of the 'Prohibition mania' that greeted the 1987 De Palma movie starring Kevin Costner and Robert DeNiro. The original version came out in 1962.

Paul Robsky, who had been an aerial photographer in France during WW I and spent a hazardous year as a dry agent in the 'Moonshine Mountains' of South Carolina, was one of the first men to join Ness' elite squad of Prohibition enforcement officers. A lot of the wild

An interesting book -- and there are several inconsistencies between it, and the previous other books, mainly "THE UNTOUCHABLES", which describes the same period. The most obvious: the other book says no agents were ever bribed, while this book says there were three agents at fault.
This is the account of Paul Robsky, one of Eliot Ness's ten Untouchables, and his time in Chicago fighting the Capone mob. Robsky was the partner of my grandfather, Joe Leeson, who is featured prominently in the book.
