Publisher's Summary

In 1998, William Queen was a veteran law enforcement agent with a lifelong love of motorcycles and a lack of patience with paperwork. When a "confidential informant" made contact with his boss at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, offering to take an agent inside the San Fernando chapter of the Mongols (the scourge of Southern California, and one of the most dangerous gangs in America), Queen jumped at the chance, not realizing that he was kick-starting the most extensive undercover operation inside an outlaw motorcycle gang in the history of American law enforcement.

Nor did Queen suspect that he would penetrate the gang so successfully that he would become a fully "patched-in" member, eventually rising through their ranks to the office of treasurer, where he had unprecedented access to evidence of their criminal activity. After Queen spent 28 months as "Billy St. John", the bearded, beer-swilling, Harley-riding gang-banger, the truth of his identity became blurry, even to himself.

What the Critics Say

"This harrowing, turbocharged account of undercover life is reminiscent of Joseph D. Pistone's Donnie Brasco." (Publishers Weekly)
"Remarkable not only for its cliff-hanging moments but also for the perceptive observations of gangster culture." (Booklist)

    "Hard to stop listening"

    Outstanding book. I first heard of William Queen when he was interviewed on the G. Gordon Liddy show. I was intrigued by the sacrifice he made and what it cost him. I had to read the book. I did and enjoyed it. It is well written, well read, and makes you feel like you were there.

    "Engrossing book"

    I found this autobiographical account very engrossing and finished it in a couple of listens.

    The book is narrated by its author who adds an extra layer of realism to this fascinating story.

    I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys the History or Discovery channels.

    Worthwhile.

    "Brave, brave man!"

    This was absolutlely awesome in the way it was delivered. You felt at times that you were there. William Queen's choice to voice this audio himself was the right one, and I can't say that about everybody. You feel close to the character and, even though it was harrowing at times, I was sad when it ended. Cracking good listen if you ask me!

    "Disapppointed"

    Expected much more drama. This is a detailed analysis of a motor cycle gang. There was no suspense or intrigue. Very boring.
