How the Outlaw Biker Gang Became A Criminal EmpireBook - 2014
"A follow-up to Befriend and Betray, this book continues the author's investigation of big biker gangs, this time focusing on the Hells Angels. The Angels have built an empire, starting from their days as saddle tramps riding Harleys to becoming multi-millionaires driving high-end SUVs. The organization has moved deeper and deeper into legitimate business, particularly in the entertainment industry, real estate, currency exchange, and online gambling and pornography. Though much has been previously written about the Hells Angels, no author to date has had Caine's combination of experience as an undercover agent and his extensive contacts within gangs and law enforcement. Caine delves into this meteoric ascent and the consequences it has had for the Angels as they transform themselves from outlaw bikers into a new mafia. Using his contacts in domestic and international police forces and Interpol, Caine exposes the inner workings of the club, shows what it's become, and what is on the gang's horizon. Alex Caine has more than three decades of experience working as a freelance undercover agent for law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and the RCMP. During his career, he has infiltrated a huge range of criminal enterprises, including Asian drug gangs, biker gangs and the Russian mafia. He is the author of Befriend and Betray: infiltrating the Hells Angels, Bandidos and other criminal brotherhoods, The Fat Mexican: the bloody rise of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, and Charlie and the Angels." --Provided by publisher.
