The gripping account from an ex-con who infiltrated three of America's most violent biker gangs.Working undercover for the ATF in separate investigations that spanned years, and crossed the US continent, Charles Falco penetrated three of America's toughest and most lawless motorcycle gangs: the Vagos, Mongols and Outlaws.Falco spent almost three years in the Vagos, rising to second in command of the notorious Victorville, California chapter. He even served time in San Bernardino's Murder Unit to protect his cover and the investigation. When the operation against the Vagos drew to its dramatic conclusion, Falco was forced to seek refuge in the Witness Protection Program, but found he could not stay on the sidelines for long. Again using his talents and hard-won experience he infiltrated the Mongols and Outlaws, rising in rank to Vice President of the Petersburg, Virginia Outlaws chapter.Falco's years of undercover work culminated in the arrests of sixty-two bikers, and was the key to one of America's most successful RICO prosecutions against motorcycle gang crime. Charles Falco's story, told with Kerrie Droban, delves into the brutal realities of the biker underworld, in an explosive narrative laced with danger, violence and Falco's incredible courage.
