    The Sangres Motorcycle Club are outlaws, notorious for drug-running, illegal weapons sales, and possibly even murder. But what they don’t know is that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives has a man on the inside....

    Can Darrin “Koz” Kozlowski survive long enough to bring them down from within? 

    KOZ tells the tale of how ATF agent Darrin “Koz” Kozlowski pulled off one of the largest organized crime busts in a generation. This gritty, LA-after-dark story dives deep into the world of one of the most dangerous motorcycle clubs in Los Angeles, bringing these unbelievable true events to life.

    “Koz” works his way up the club ranks. But the more entrenched he becomes, the more the stakes grow and spiral. Either he proves he’s as ruthless as his Sangres brothers, or he risks his and his family’s lives. As the story speeds toward its conclusion, the question becomes: Will Koz unearth the Sangres’ dark secret? Or will he blow his cover and be run down before getting the chance?

    Taylor Kitsch (Waco) and Kate Mara (House of Cards) star in this fast-paced, immersive Audible Original based on a true story. Its format features scripted storytelling from an all-star cast, and includes interview excerpts from the real Darrin “Koz” Kozlowski, allowing listeners to dive deeper into his psyche for the first time

Many remember him first as the foster father in Terminator 2, head of PR in Apollo 13, Captain Whitaker in A Few Good Men, and the turncoat Secret Service Man Agent Gibbs, who went down with the plane, in Air Force One, the evil Sheriff Nathan Van Cleef in Shanghai Noon and the King of Sodom in Harold Ramis’ Year One being just a few of his many memorable roles in Studio hits. And as for Indies, he did three other Films with Alex Cox and four with Mike Figgis as well as leads in Candyman, Safe, Gattaca, and the titular role in The Maestro.
TV fans know him as George Mason (who also went down with the plane...) on Fox’s 24, Percy on Nikita for the CW, Magistrate Hale on WGN’s Salem, Red John on The Mentalist for CBS, and Gregory on The Walking Dead for AMC. Also starring as The Man in The Booth at the End for Hulu.
Xander has won best actor awards in many different domestic and international film festivals and The Streamies, as well as the coveted Art Carney Award for lifetime excellence as a film character actor, a Lifetime Achievement in film from The Garden State Film Festival and a Screen Actor’s Guild Award for best ensemble cast.
Xander will next be seen in the western Butcher’s Crossing opposite Nicholas Cage, and appearing in a globally known confidential Disney+ series. Look for him to start directing soon in his new home state of Maine where he lives with his wife, actress Sarah Clarke, and their two daughters.

Featured Article: Best of the Year—The 15 Best Mysteries and Thrillers of 2022


This year was an amazingly fruitful one for mysteries and thrillers. As we tried to narrow this list down, a popular refrain among editors was: "Don’t forget this, don’t forget that, and what about this?" Some of us liked when the twists and turns began within the first few minutes, while others were happy to go on the rocky, thrilling rides the genre provides with a little guessing along the way. But we’re sure about one thing—this list is simply the best.

Taylor Kitsch was awesome, as usual

Gritty crime thriller where an ATF agent goes deep undercover to infiltrate a notorious motorcycle club. The voice acting was spot on, I didn't feel like I was just listening, I could actually imagine it play out like a movie.

Holy Crow!!!!

Now I’m not a big true crime listener. That is more my wife’s avenue, but saw an blog post about this podcast and thought it looked interesting motorcycles and a skull sounds interesting let’s see what we have.

The whole story had my stomach tied up in knots. I was holding on to this story at every episode. What was going to happen was his cover gonna get blown? What was it like to be in a club? So on and so on. Great story great set up the audio engineering was one of amazement. It kept you on the edge of your seat and disoriented.

Amazing show!

No way would i ever buy a pro ATF agent audiobook. These guys violate the 2A every chance they get. Id rather hear a story about how they disbanded the atf.

I was hooked. I love the back and forth between his training and his thoughts vs what's going on in present. I'm 7 episodes in and I dread listening to the final 2 simply because it'll be over and imma miss it.

Love these kind of stories

These always blow my mind. People who go undercover and risk their lives for the good of others are heroes. These gangs are vile. People who want to live of misery of others and get ahead in life by taking what they didn't earn are trash. These agents prove time and time again what it's like to remind them that someone out there cares.
