Among members of the outlaw motorcycle clubs, Caesar Campbell is a legend. Former sergeant-at-arms and chief enforcer for the Comancheros, Caesar became the founding member and sergeant-at-arms of the Australian chapter of the Bandidos. He epitomised bikie culture - unbeatable in a fight, brutal in the extreme, fearing no one and nothing, and loyal until death. This is Caesar's story, from his recruitment into the Comancheros, to the savage split within the club that led to the foundation of the Bandidos and the bloody massacre at Milperra that resulted from it. Enforcer is a unique and captivating true-crime story that will shock you with its raw violence, its brutality and its insights into an outlaw world.

I liked it. shows how things have changed among todays wanna be bike people. buying a bike and wearing the leather does not make a biker. every town has a bully or guy who thinks he a bad ass. listen to this and you will hear a story of a man. not a bully, not a tuff guy. but a man who's beliefs and his word are what the world is missing today. This book hits a spot with me. I grew up around this life. family members being in one of the big 4. if people in the world lived by a code of honor it would be a better place. give it a read.

I like the idea of an australian modern history being brought to attention. I also like to hear about the change in the australian bikie culture
yes, it is simple and very australian. It matched the subject perfectly
Yes, I would like to hear what has happened to the bikie culture and to the key players of the time. But I suspect it will never happen due to the culture of 'silence'
I am reluctant to say this for fear of being punished :-) But I found the whole so called 'family value' of the club scene which the author talks about, so hypocritical and self-serving that it makes it very hard to believe anything the author says!
His self-awareness is evry self serving, so much so it is disturbing! It is no wonder we have so many problems within Australian culture with gangs and if the author's attitudes are a an example of the typical members then things will only get worse.
However in saying all of that, the Qld governments new laws cracking down on the club's is no way to go about reform!
The book seemed to be a dry re accounting of circumstances leading up to fights and fights (which I guess in Australia is called a "blue"), there's not as much "soul" to this book as other MC books that I have read, in my opinion choose another, although this one isn't horrible...it's just mediocre in a great genre.
Work in the tech industry. I like nonfiction.
Fascinating and fast moving story
Dead Biker, but with less fluff.
I loved the accent and getting to know the Aussies idioms. Hearing it made it possible to understand what they meant.
Yeah, but it was too long. I did listen to it pretty fast!
Now I want to find the mini-series that tells the story!
Expert of the UnDead
Absolutely. I've read a number of autobiographies and a few of them by true 1% bikers and this was different. I'm not sure if it was because it took place in Australia or because he had such a close family but this book was great. I really enjoyed listening to the stories of his life. I'm looking forward to hearing more, as it looks like he has a second book coming out.
The "collection" that Caesar had in a jar.
All of it.
Yes and I can't wait for his second book to come out.
Check out this book it's great!
Profesionl, hard working woman who travels weekly, enjoys life. My best Friends are Michael and Scooter. Nonfiction books are the best!
There really wasn't any point to the book
No Way, I loved others I have read this one just didn't have a real story. Its about his life, boaring.
Narrator was not the issue, there was no story except for his gang.
I wanted to get tothe end to see if anything happened, it didn't
Have it be a little more realistic.
None that I can think of.
So many of the things the author says happened simply could not have happened. I think the author/s are into embellishing and BS'ing.
"Best biker book I have read so far"
Gripping story. Interesting to see a tough biker point of view.
I enjoyed the whole story. Only negative comment I can make is the voices of the different characters. So many of them sounded whiny and irritating.
If I had had the time, I would have done it all in one go. I think I did extends some of my cars journeys so I could hear a bit more.
"Repetitive and abrupt ending"
Yes- good background story No- Repetitive narration and abrupt ending (Book Two?)
Story content and context
Lot's of phrase repetition- down to the text, however inflection made it difficult to follow characters
Would need to be book One & Two not a series
Enjoyed it but wouldn't invest in book Two
