Would you go to the gates of Hell for your job?In 2001 Jay Dobyns infiltrated a Hells Angels chapter operating in Arizona, in a highly secretive investigation code-named Operation Black Biscuit. The aim was simple- to examine the criminal underbelly of the world's most famous biker group, and bring a major case against them. The reality, however, was much more complicated. In the twenty-one months that he spent inside the club, Dobyns became seduced by the outlaw lifestyle; seduced by the physical menace that comes with wearing the patch; seduced by riding his Harley down the highway at 100 miles an hour, eight bikes to a column, one bike's wheels 18 inches from the next; and seduced by the intense bonds he forms within the club, where friends lay down their lives for each other.This book is a wild ride through one of the world's most violent and unpredictable organisations. No Angelscreams along with the noise, power and force of the Hells Angels in full formation.
Jay Dobyns, alias Jaybird, joined the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) in 1988 and within ten days was held hostage and shot in the chest. Between 2001 and 2003 he infiltrated the Hells Angels motorcycle club as an undercover agent. He was offered membership into the gang after passing an initiation test involving the murder of a rival Mongols gangs member.
