Angels of Death: Inside the Biker Gangs' Crime Empire Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A woman named Cynthia Garcia is beheaded in an Angels' Clubhouse in Arizona; three bullet-ridden bodies turn up in a river in Holland; a policeman is killed when his car is bombed in Australia. Meanwhile, Hells Angels world leader Sonny Barger is feted by the world media on his global book tour. Angels of Death takes readers to Arizona, inside the biggest American police undercover operation to infiltrate the bikers; to British Columbia where wealthy bikers dominate the organized crime pyramid; to Australia where the bikies shoot-it-out with police; to Curagao where terrorist organizations funnel drugs to Dutch bikers; and to the streets of Oslo, Copenhagen and Helsinki where a murderous biker war saw rocket attacks and bombs turn Scandinavia into a war zone.

While the media has continued to toast the Hells Angels California leader, Sonny Barger, as an American legend, the facts tell another story they are America's major crime export. With an estimated 2,500 full-patch members in 25 countries, the Hells Angels have inspired a global subculture of biker gangs that are among the most feared and violent underworld players.

Synopsis:

Two of today's top investigative journalists discovered the reality of the world's most foremost biker gang — The Hells Angels. With an estimated 2,500 members in 25 countries, the Hells Angels have inspired a global subculture of violence and fear. Sher and Marsden unflinching look at how law enforcement agencies worldwide are trying to stop — with little success — the biker gangs from spreading their violent outlaw creed around the world.

Synopsis:

While the media has continued to toast the Hells Angels California leader, Sonny Barger, as an American legend, the facts presented in this book tell another story: they are America's major crime export.
