Walter Stadnick is not an imposing man. At five-foot-four, his face and arms scarred by fire in a motorcycle accident, he would not spring to mind as a leader of Canada's most notorious biker gang, the Hells Angels. yet through sheer guts and determination, intelligence and luck, this Hamilton-born youth who had the nickname of "Nurget" rose in the Hells Angels ranks to be ...more

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.
