A great study of a unique American subculture. There is always a comparison to the American cowboys.
Hell of a read...I salute all the men and woman of the ATF, FBI and police departments...Dobyns is the man
The violence of the Hells Angels is incredible and unknown to most of us. The stories of agent Dobyns and the other agents who volenteered to enter that world show that they are modern day gladiators. Sher and Mardsen do a wonderful job of telling thier story.
