The book is very well composed and entertaining,switching from a law enfocement standpoint and the criminal element it seeks to eliminate. What I found the most amazing is that many of the places and events described in the book---I have actually been to--or watched! Its amazing what goes on around you in -plain sight- that you never actually "see"--or want to see. Provided great information regarding the Hells Angels organization!
I can not believe that Pat Matter refuses to feel bad for alk the lives he help to ruin by selling illegal drugs! He should still be in jail!!!!
Awesome book! Well written from both Mr. Matters' and Mr. Omodts' perspectives. I like the fact that you put personal pictures in the book . Makes it easier to wrap your head around the stories.I was fortunate to meet these 2 gentlemen at the book signing in Badger, Iowa Thanks! Linda from the 70s..
