This is the explosive true story of the only man ever to infiltrate the Hells Angels organization as an FBI informant, uncovering the truth about the notorious biker gang's netherworld of evil, lust, and violence.

  • A chilling crime story that strips away the Hell's Angels's image to reveal a powerful and deadly organized crime syndicate.
  • The author's acceptance into the highest ranks of the gang led to an unprecedented FBI sting operation and 42 arrests.

    From the Back Cover:

    By becoming the right-hand man of legendary Hells Angels leader Sonny Barger, Anthony Tait learned all of the club’s dirtiest secrets. As the eyes and ears of an elaborate FBI undercover sting, he exposed some of the club’s “brothers” for what they really are—ruthless businessmen who will commit any crime for money, vicious thugs who:

    • Take murder contracts out on informers
    •  Run a multimillion-dollar international drug ring that peddles speed and cocaine
    • Use fear, intimidation, and severe beatings to keep other members in line
    • Manipulate the legal system with high-priced lawyers when charges are brought against them
    • Steal from each other, spy on each other—and sometimes even kill each other

    Hells Angels: Into the Abyss strips away the romantic myth of the lovable bad boys and takes you inside the organization’s netherworld of evil, lust, and violence. Both a chilling true-crime story and a warning about a growing threat to our cities, it will forever change the way you look at this dangerous biker club.
