Publisher's Summary

Despite lacking any experience with motorcycle gangs, Charles Falco infiltrated three of America's deadliest biker gangs: the Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws. In separate investigations that spanned years and coasts, Falco risked his life, suffering a fractured neck and a severely torn shoulder, working deep under cover to bring violent sociopaths to justice. His dedication was profound; Falco spent almost three years infiltrating the Vagos gang and rose to second in command of the Victorville, California chapter. He even served time in San Bernardino's Murder Unit and endured solitary confinement to protect his cover and the investigations.

Falco recorded confessions of gangland-style killings and nearly became a target himself before he sought refuge in the Witness Protection Program. But discontent to remain on the sidelines and motivated by a strong sense of duty, Falco eventually left the program and volunteered his talents again to infiltrate the Mongols and Outlaws, rising in rank to vice president of the Petersburg, Virginia, Outlaws chapter. His efforts culminated in 62 arrests of members for various crimes, including assault and murder. Executing one of this country's most successful RICO prosecutions and effectively crippling the criminal enterprise, Falco's engrossing narrative of the dangers of the biker underworld harkens back to Hunter S. Thompson's classic Hell's Angels, vividly recounting a life undercover.

What the Critics Say

"This window into the criminal biker culture offers a tale as grimy and bloody as the world its writer moved through." (Library Journal)

    "no good."

    poorly written by a wanna be cop with delusions of grandeur. Overdramatized, filled with impossible situations that can't be true, and laced with self pity.....save your money.

    "Don't"

    Garbage. Narrator is annoying and borderline unable to listen to. Story is overly dramatic and exaggerated. Sensationalized trash

    Story
    "Into an Abyss of Bad Actors"
    Where does Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's one of the best of it's kind. Falco was there, he chewed the dirt as it were and everything is from his perspective.


    What other book might you compare Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws to and why?

    Under and Alone comes to mind


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The treatment of women is appalling.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't believe how badly Falco is treated by the good guys at times. This book really takes you there and exposes the underside of OMG's.

    Story
    "Terrible - not as good as other books like it"

    Over-dramatized and exaggerated stories about motorcycle clubs. You'll start sympathizing with these so called "gangs". You'll also feel embarrassed on how much man power and money our government spent on throwing just a handful of small time dead-beats into jail for short sentences. I feel sad for the undercover agents that had to endure the pain for these failed investigations, as well as the club members who were unjustly harassed.
