Overview

Set in the a rust-belt city called Springfield, USA, Biker traces the career trajectory of Ned "Crash" Aiken, a small-time high-school drug dealer who rises quickly through the ranks of a major biker gang. He sees the wisdom in migrating to the ranks of the Sons of Satan, a powerful OMG that is busy expanding their territory, either by patch-over or by killing the competition. Aiken proves himself a natural leader and in a few years is overseeing business involving millions of dollars and life-and-death decisions.

Through Aiken's rise to power, the inner sanctum of the outlaw motorcycle gang is revealed. The power structure; the operations; strategic decisions made around rival gangs; dealing with the weak and traitorous; colluding with native Americans and Canadians to smuggle guns, drugs, prostitutes and contraband into Canada. As the reader discovers, the OMG is not the romantic free-wheeling beer-fest world as portrayed by bikers, but a scummy existence that draws social outcasts like moths to a flame.

Biker is frank and realistic, conveying a brutal reality but one that continues to be sought after and idolized, and read about, because it is a world that continues to fascinate those on the outside looking in.

    Not that great

    The story jumps to much, very far fetched, fictious mc names are lame. Not very accurate of how a mc operates.

    Thoroughly enjoyed!

    Great insight into a foreign world. It was a quick read, but the storyline was in no way simple. Great characters, especially Ned. I was surprised it ended the way it did. I'm looking forward to the sequel.
