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 violenceA chilling crime story that strips away the Hell s Angels s image to reveal a powerful and deadly organized crime syndicateThe author s acceptance into the highest ranks of the gang led to an unprecedented FBI sting operation andarrests Hell s Angels Into the Abyss documents the years in the life of Hell s Angel motorcycle club member Anthony Tait when he went from being a member of the club to being an FBI informant He joined the club as a prospect in 1982 and over the next few years worked his way up the ranks to be one of the top 4 members on the west coast of the USA For years he worked within the club and as an FBI informant, the only informant to ever penetrate the club fully With his help in 1987 the FBI did simultan Hell s Angels Into the Abyss documents the years in the life of Hell s Angel motorcycle club member Anthony Tait when he went from being a member of the club to being an FBI informant He joined the club as a prospect in 1982 and over the next few years worked his way up the ranks to be one of the top 4 members on the west coast of the USA For years he worked within the club and as an FBI informant, the only informant to ever penetrate the club fully With his help in 1987 the FBI did simultaneous raids through the west coast and made over 40 arrests for charges ranging from drug trafficking to conspiracy to commit murder Through this raid they were able to remove hundred of weapons, millions of dollars of drugs and cash and many criminals off the streets.While I didn t find Tait to be a very trustworthy character the FBI obviously saw something in him that made him their perfect informant It s not often that you can find an informant in a motorcycle club that doesn t already have a criminal records or a history of drug use.Although this book was a little difficult to get in to at first, the beginning was slow while explaining police procedures, it ended up being a very interesting topic It s amazing to realize the amount of drugs and weapons available to criminals and how hard it is for police to actually get them off the streets The violence in this book amazed me, the way the HA could take someone s life without a thought just because they needed to pay back a rival club for a murder they committed Even worse is the knowledge that the crimes they committed in the 80 s are still being committed today, and they have become evensophisticated in hiding them Rivalries have become worse and the war between clubs has strengthened until things like the Bandido Massacre happen Worth a read if you have any interested in true crime.l Interesting story Poorly written Redundant Too much detail in irreverent places Too little in important places.

Interesting story about an F.B.I informant that made it into the higher echelons of this motorcycle club. I didn t think much of this book.
