In his previous title, "Hells Angels: Taking Care of Business", Yves Lavigne blew the lid off an organization that few knew anything about beyond the romanticized image of tough guys, their Harleys and their women. In "Hells Angels: Into the Abyss", Lavigne got up close and personal with the Angels on an exclusive ride with an FBI informant inside the gang. In this third book in the trilogy, Lavigne exposes the slick, technologically-savvy new breed of Hells Angels and looks at how they are becoming a very real threat to society in Canada, the US and throughout the world. He reveals just how powerless law enforcement agencies are to stop what is equivalent to a multi-million dollar corporation that just happens to have the number-one market share in the illegal drugs industry. In 1998, the Hells Angels turned 50. Yet most politicians, police officers and the public still haven't repsonded to the fact that the gang has evolved into a major organized crime force, capable of manipulating the legal system and the media with professional ease.With his insider's knowledge, Lavigne reports on the latest from the Angels' frontline: the purchase of hotels, real estate and business for the express use of laundering money.
