Undercover and risking his life, Charles Falco infiltrated three of America's deadliest biker gangs: the Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws. His dedication was profound; Falco spent almost three years infiltrating the Vagos gang and served time in San Bernardino's Murder Unit to protect his cover and the investigations. His efforts culminated in sixty two arrests of members for various crimes, including assault and murder. Falco's engrossing narrative of the dangers of the biker underworld is a must-read for fans of true crime and motorcycle culture.
