Overview

The infamous Sonny Barger once declared that the Hells Angels would never be infiltrated. Running with the Devil chronicles the story of the ATF sting that proved him wrong and the two undercover agents who risked their lives in the process. For two years, the agents posed as members of a Mexican renegade motorcycle club, earning the trust and respect of the vicious Arizona Hells Angels.

Their work led to the shocking 2003 bust in which ATF agents arrested fifty people and seized 650 guns, 30,000 rounds of ammunition, and more than 100 explosive items-including grenades and napalm.

Writing in cooperation with ATF agents, most of whom remain undercover today, Kerrie Droban follows the perilous mission up through the ensuing court case and jail sentences. Along the way, she provides a startling-and unprecedented-expose on the treacherous inner workings of the Hells Angels brotherhood.

If you want to read what he did read it first hand not this version. It shows why so many people have a strong hatred of this man, how he betrayed and more to people who took him in. This is just a bad version cause it cuts out to much since he was still undercover when this was written.

The story of a group of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms officers who were the first federal agents to infiltrate the biker gang, Hell's Angels. Prepare to be shocked and appalled that people like this exist in the real world. Reads like a movie. Not as well-written as I'd like but still fascinating.

One of the worst books ever written about the Hells Angels. The author is a criminal defense attorney, but she's married to a Phoenix policeman. And that's where it appears she got all her information for this book. This book is full of the same old lies the cops have been telling for years. Nothing new at all. And the book is poorly written as well. It reads like a 6th grader wrote it. Don't waste your money.
