Publisher's Summary

The world’s most successful criminal empire is now being operated on a massive scale by outlaw motorcycle gangs - an empire that is growing in power, reach, and ruthlessness by the day. Their international empire is both sophisticated and brutal. It is also both strategic and opportunistic - where they cannot dominate, they broker alliances. Above the Law investigates how it all started: the turf wars that were fought, the deals that were done, and how the sea of cash that was earned is now being legitimised.

It also reveals how law enforcement at an international level is losing the battle against the gangs. Using exclusive insider sources on four continents, this is the first contemporary account of one of the biggest criminal stories of our time. Listen to it and be afraid. A companion and follow-up to the internationally-lauded Dead Man Running.

Critic Reviews

"Timely.... A good read, full of accounts of murder, mayhem and dirty dealing. The book is a fascinating look at an important, growing part of Australia’s underworld." (Sydney Morning Herald)

Insightful

Nice to see such a comprehensive world wide view of some of the criminal cases involving members of some motorcycle cubs. Even if it does focus a little on a certain club.

Good sound history

For those interested in a more broader perspective on how and why bike clubs were started, grew and continue this is definitely a must listen
There are many ingrained consistencies that Ring true here and although we do not all agree on many of the associated activities it gives you a much broader perspective into the lives and ways of many men
