Publisher Comments:

As seen on Americas Most Wanted and Anderson Cooper 360°
 
“We cant be infiltrated, no cops can get inside on us, they dont have the resources, the manpower, or the time to wait. Were unbeatable and untouchable.”

—Sonny Barger

 
From Running with the Devil

 

It wasnt uncommon for outlaw biker gang members to put out contract hits on federal prosecutors and agents alike, eliminate material witnesses, and murder informants before trials. Much like a terrorist organization, the gangs ruled by fear, orchestrating a network of criminal masterminds whose mission it was to disrupt and chill investigators into club objectives. They were organized killers. . . .

 
He motioned to the others to stop talking. Their faces froze in panic.

Something had gone terribly wrong. Bird reached for the phone, his nerves

shattered, his fingers thick and awkward on the keypad as he dialed Beef.

A thousand scenarios raced through his mind.

 
“Whats happened?” Birds voice was tight, urgent.
 
“Get out,” Beef ordered.
 
“Whats going on?” Bird pressed.
 
“Dont ask questions, just get out now!” Beef yelled.  “Theyre coming over to kill you.”

Book News Annotation:

Droban brings unique experience as both a criminal defense attorney and a writer of fiction suspense novels to this true story of the ATF's infiltration of the Hells Angels in the early 2000s, leading to a 2003 bust in which ATF agents arrested 50 people and seized 650 guns, 30,000 rounds of ammunition, and more than 100 explosive items including grenades and napalm. The writing is tense, taut, and filled with intensity; the book is intended for the general public. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The inside story of the ATF's infiltration of the Hell's Angels, one of the most notorious and violent outlaw motorcycle gangs in history.

Synopsis:

The infamous Sonny Barger once declared that the Hells Angels would never be infiltrated. Running with the Devil chronicles the story of the ATF sting and the two undercover agents who risked their lives to prove him wrong. For two years, they posed as members of a Mexican renegade motorcycle club, earning the trust and respect of the vicious Arizona Hells Angels.  Their work led to the shocking 2003 bust in which ATF agents arrested fifty people and seized 650 guns, 30,000 rounds of ammunition, and more than 100 explosive items--including grenades and napalm! Following the steps of the ATF agents who remain undercover today, the author recounts their perilous mission up through the ensuing court case and jail sentences.  Along the way, Droban provides a startling--and unprecedented--expose on the treacherous inner workings of the Hells Angels brotherhood.
