Angels of Death: Inside the Biker Gangs' Crime Empire
A woman named Cynthia Garcia is stabbed to death and dumped in the Arizona desert after partying at a Hells Angels clubhouse in Arizona; three
bullet-ridden bodies of bikers turn up in a river in... Oh, wrong book.
Hold on.
The Biker Trials: Bringing Down the Hells Angels
No stars for this worthless "book". It appears that this author conducted her entire investigation via the internet and did a poor job at that. Nothing new, nothing of any real substance, save your... oh shoot, wrong book again.
Hold on.
Okay, got it.
Bloody Justice: The Truth Behind the Bandido Massacre at Shedden

I wouldn't read this before bed because it's quite disturbing just by the very nature of the murders. Probably more disturbing is the way this author made me understand the very humanity behind these events. She certainly doesn't make anyone out to be a boy scout, but she makes a very compelling argument that justice really wasn't served when all of the accused basically got the same sentences despite their varying levels of involvement.

I'd read the other two books out on the Shedden Massacre. Alex Caine is a bad writer and just was into rewriting how important he is and what his own theory was about Hells Angels involvement.. It read like his last book. Peter Edwards did a good job as a researcher and clearly knows his gang crimes. But he didn't question anything. Arvast questioned a lot and makes a pretty compelling case.
Arvast wrote the best book by far because she wasn't just telling the story as the cops told it (something I felt the media and Edwards did). She actually makes a case that the informant was a killer and that most of them men who were convicted are actually innocent. Her case is compelling. But more than anything, it was the best read because she wrote it as literature and if you look for the clues in her allusions to King Lear, she doesn't just glimpse over Shakespeare with quotes. She alludes to the specific characters in the play. Interesting native spirituality infusion too. So... at the end of the day she is an author as opposed to a simple writer... but you have to want to read something literate instead of just get a simple story told by a journalist. She is pushing for appeals for 3 of the convicted. I watched the whole story unfold but I never learned that there were likely 3 guys doing big time only because they had to clean up or be done themselves. Cool that this author gave us this sense of justice gone wrong.

I really feel for the families, Anita lives on perfect and pristine 32 Granville Street in Barrie, but despite falling in love with Brett, and even getting kicked out during the trial for illegally passing him explicit love notes detailing her sexual fantasies, writing little stories in a college and calling herself a ph.d, lots of reviews online demonstrating how she got kicked out of court when security in the actual murder trial saw her passing love notes to the defendant. please stop trying to make money off the affair, it's over and justice was served. Leave the biker families alone please! you keep trying to destroy them but they are innocent until proven guilty!! Please, I am telling the truth as you yourself have told it.
