What is it? Torso by Brian Michael Bendis
What is it about? The shocking true story of Eliot Ness and his attempt to catch America’s first serial killer.
Why you should read it? If you’re like me and thought Eliot Ness’s exploits ended when Capone went to jail, then this story about the hunt for Cleveland’s Torso Murderer will leave you absolutely fascinated.
Is the series complete? Yes, this is a standalone.
Need more convincing? The unsolved mystery, reminiscent of the Jack the Ripper murders, is a tale of politics, suspicion, close calls, and horror. While Bendis offers a captivating yet somewhat fictionalized true-crime story, the appendix provides the facts about this terrifying case, which make it all the more shocking.

Today is the start of our new summer reading series “If you liked ___, Read this next” for diverse books. The #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign is deeply committed to increasing the visibility of the wonderful diverse books that are published, because these books do not get the marketing and promotion that blockbuster books get. We want to do our part in raising the profile of diverse books and bringing them to a larger audience. Help us spread the word! We will have a new “If You Liked” post every day of the summer!
The first book in our series is the YA book Akata Witch by Nnedi Okarafor. You really need to read this author, about whom the great Ursula LeGuin said: “There’s more vivid imagination in a page of Nnedi Okorafor’s work than in whole volumes of ordinary fantasy epics.” So what are you waiting for? Read Akata Witch next!
