Beschreibung

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 undercover to
bring violent sociopaths to justice<

CHARLES FALCO spent three years infiltrating the Vagos, becoming second-in-charge of the Victorville, California chapter, another two years infiltrating the Mongols and Outlaws and became vice president of a Virginia chapter of the Outlaws. KERRIE DROBAN is the co-author of "Prodigal Father, Pagan Son "and author of "Running with the Devil," winner of the USA Book News National Book Award for Best Memoir/Autobiography and two-time winner for their True Crime award. She is an attorney in Arizona.

Praise for "Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws" "Falco rose to "officer" status in three biker gangs, and his book - "Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws: My Infiltration of America's Deadliest Biker Gangs" - is the more polished, measured and authoritative of the two." --"Los Angeles Times "comparing to George Rowe's "Gods of Mischief ""Absorb "Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws" as one part juicy scoop, one part machismo on parade, and Falco can take some sad and beautiful snapshots."--"Boston Globe ""Falco was facing a minimum sentence of 22 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute and manufacture hundreds of pounds of methamphetamine when the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department made him an offer he couldn't refuse--become an undercover informant instead of going to jail. The bulk of this fascinating autobiography describes in detail Falco's work infiltrating the Vagos Motorcycle Club, an outlaw biker gang considered in 2003 to be the 'largest urban terrorist' organization in the U.S. Falco's main assignment reads like a synopsis of the book: 'Get inside, gather intelligence on the gang, identify the club's leaders, purchase drugs from them, and collect as many illegal firearms as you can.' Falco describes in almost excruciating detail how he rose in the Vagos ranks from a go-fer to a full-fledged member, a three-year descent into a violent world of drug abuse, Neanderthal treatment of women, and constant fighting that left Falco living constantly 'in a state of veiled paranoia, ' even after the Vagos gang was brought down by the law. It is Falco's unrelenting depiction of the stupidity and brutality in the Vagos biker world that makes his story powerful."--"Publishers Weekly ""Facing more than 20 years behind bars for manufacturing and distributing methamphetamine, Falco quickly accepted the government's offer: in return for certain considerations, he would infiltrate the Vagos, a particularly nasty Southern California biker gang.
