this romance of riding a motorbike on the open road with a bunch of freedom loving brothers is demystified in this account. Hells Angels are the lords of the underworld and a violent world it is.

Another of those "you should read this" books given to me after a conversation. The writer can write a lead line and that's about it. Tedious litany of previously hashed over stuff. And much of it not about the guy in the title.
It is a very complete profile of the characters involved in the Quebec biker wars of the early 90s. However, the character profiles almost come at a fault as there is such a big supporting cast that we lose track of who's who between cops, Rockers, and Hells Angels. Plus, there are long lapses where we lose all sense of what our Fallen Angel, Walter Stadnick, is doing, or role is in the narrative.
so far so good, but depending on how many books you've read on the subject, you may not find the content as surprising as if this is the first you've read on the topic....yeah that kind of held true til the end.
