Publisher's Summary

Despite lacking any experience with motorcycle gangs, Charles Falco infiltrated three of America's deadliest biker gangs: the Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws. In separate investigations that spanned years and coasts, Falco risked his life, suffering a fractured neck and a severely torn shoulder, working deep under cover to bring violent sociopaths to justice. His dedication was profound; Falco spent almost three years infiltrating the Vagos gang and rose to second in command of the Victorville, California chapter. He even served time in San Bernardino's Murder Unit and endured solitary confinement to protect his cover and the investigations.

Falco recorded confessions of gangland-style killings and nearly became a target himself before he sought refuge in the Witness Protection Program. But discontent to remain on the sidelines and motivated by a strong sense of duty, Falco eventually left the program and volunteered his talents again to infiltrate the Mongols and Outlaws, rising in rank to vice president of the Petersburg, Virginia, Outlaws chapter. His efforts culminated in 62 arrests of members for various crimes, including assault and murder. Executing one of this country's most successful RICO prosecutions and effectively crippling the criminal enterprise, Falco's engrossing narrative of the dangers of the biker underworld harkens back to Hunter S. Thompson's classic Hell's Angels, vividly recounting a life undercover.

Critic Reviews

"This window into the criminal biker culture offers a tale as grimy and bloody as the world its writer moved through." ( Library Journal)

no good.

poorly written by a wanna be cop with delusions of grandeur. Overdramatized, filled with impossible situations that can't be true, and laced with self pity.....save your money.

Great fiction

Falco has done a great job painting 1%ers as a bunch of coked out drunks that have sex with anything that moves... This fiction works out great for the courts. His story's being turned into t.v. shorts has made it
easy for civilians to look down on who we are. Judging us before they even know the whole story. FTP Viva Los Vagos

mundane exageration

A fictional exageration of what life in these clubs is actually like. This guy describes his experience the same way anti gun advocates describe shooting an AR-15.

Terrible - not as good as other books like it

Over-dramatized and exaggerated stories about motorcycle clubs. You'll start sympathizing with these so called "gangs". You'll also feel embarrassed on how much man power and money our government spent on throwing just a handful of small time dead-beats into jail for short sentences. I feel sad for the undercover agents that had to endure the pain for these failed investigations, as well as the club members who were unjustly harassed.

Straight Up Fiction

I have read quite a few books about 1%er motorcycle clubs, mostly about 81 and I have to say this book is probably the worst I have read. IMO there is not that much that I believed and I think Falco has a big exaggeration, I think he was just trying to spin a story that would sell. Also in my opinion he is just a glorified rat. I like Jeffrey Kafer, I have listened to several of his books and I think he narrated this bs story pretty well. I read this on Kindle as well as listening on Audible.

GARBAGE

This has to be the WORST book ever, Over exaggerated and doesn't speak on anything about the Mongols. I completely wasted $18 on this crap. The narrator sucks also. If you're thinking about purchasing this, DO NOT DO IT. Fair warning.
