The Outlaws Motorcycle Club's story is told here for the first time in paperback, by the #1 national bestselling criminal underworld author and former infiltrator Alex Caine. They are the original biker gang, and their 60 years of war with the Hells Angels is the stuff of legend.
Right down to their signature logo (a skull known as "Charlie"), the McCook Outlaws Motorcycle Club, formed in 1935, defined the look and sensibility of the twentieth-century biker. In the 1950s, a rising gang of toughs in California threatened to steal their thunder. But, recognizing an opportunity for expansion, the Outlaws reached out. The nascent Hells Angels sent them home to Chicago, beaten, humiliated and forever bent on the Angels' destruction.
60 years and thousands of maimed and murdered later, the Hells Angels are a dominant criminal empire. The Outlaws, loosely allied with the #2 club in the biker universe, the Bandidos, sit at #3, though they rule in places like the UK, the Great Lakes, Florida and the US Midwest. The Outlaws continue to define the vicious biker character like few of their peers.
Working undercover, Alex Caine witnessed a Bandidos-mediated truce between the Outlaws and Angels in the 1980s. But like every deal between bikers it soured, and a storm of unimaginable violence is brewing. The Outlaws are expanding and determined to unseat the Angels once and for all.
