Chasing Eliot Ness by Michelle Regan

Eliot Ness has a lot more on his mind than just getting Al Capone in this romantic thriller that takes place in and around Chicago during the 1930s. In this fictional story, Ness demonstrates just how persistent he can be when he wants something and is willing to do anything to get it.

The story is told from the point of view of the young, beautiful, but very naïve heroine, Grace Kinney, who feels compelled to document what happened during those times of raids, Tommy guns and Al Capone just in case she needs to use it against the not so untouchable Eliot Ness.

The reader is put into the middle of the action right away as Grace describes meeting two very dangerous men on the same day - the devastatingly charming and wickedly handsome Persian gangster, Hassan Adeeni, and the young, good looking, blue-eyed prohibition agent, Eliot Ness. She is soon thrust into a world for which she is hopelessly unprepared and finds herself up against two very different men, each of whom vow to protect her, with different ideas in mind for her welfare. Who can she trust?

This is Eliot Ness as never seen before. A man determined to do the job he has been paid to do and clean up the corruption of Chicago during the Capone era. But also a man with inner demons. A married man who cannot seem to keep away from a beautiful woman who doesn't know what she wants or to which world she belongs. The fictional Ness becomes part of a romantic love triangle as he does everything within the law to possess the woman he wants and get her away from the gangster she grows to love.

This book is also available in Kindle edition.

Michelle Regan is a professional writer and has had several short stories published. Chasing Eliot Ness is her first novel. She self published it because she wanted something in print. Next to the birth of her two children, the day the book came to the door was the happiest day of her life.

She got bored with the romance books that were out there. Too many rules to follow. She has never been one for rules, they have no place in art of any form. She looks at writing, any writing, as an art form. And she likes breaking rules. Especially those she had no hand in setting up in the first place.

She writes non fiction for money, mostly ghostwriting. She has been doing this for several years, writing cheap articles for cheap people at a rate of about 10,000 words a day. She still had time to write a 574 page book. And the sequel to the book, still in progress.
