Book Description

Sometimes, you make bad choices.

Sometimes, bad choices are made for you.

Ned "Crash" Aiken thought he had made a clean break. He had turned on his biker brothers in the Sons of Satan and entered the FBI's witness protection program, only to end up in a different kind of prison, one of mediocre work and cheap apartments. He then fell in with the Russian mob, learning their brutal code first-hand and fleeing their organization when the stakes got too high. Between the FBI, the Sons and the Russians, there are a lot of people who want to get their hands on the innocent-looking ex-drug trafficker.

Now he's in Mexico, trying to go straight and stay alive. But Mexico isn't like the United States. It isn't even like it used to be in its heyday as a playground for wealthy gringos to vacation or college kids to party on the cheap. Ned is no stranger to drugs, violence and brutality, and what he sees in Mexico he can only try to ignore.

But even while Ned tries his best to mind his own business, he is forced back into the underworld against his will. He finds himself at the mercy of a cartel and its notorious leader, and now the game is just about survival. But how can you play the game when there are no rules?

From the author of the best-selling Gangland, a searing read about the Mexican cartels, Dead Biker is a disturbing story about immense power and indiscriminate brutality, and lives held hostage in more ways than one.

3.0 out of 5 stars an entertaining read Aug. 18 2013
By Bordeaux Dogue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for something along the lines of Winslow's Power of the Dog, this is not it.

Gets significantly better at the last third, however.

Gives you a quick overview of how the Mexican drug cartels act and move the drugs into the States.

All in all, one reads this book like one watches an action moovie. Entertaining couple of hours, not badly written, but nothing to write home about.
5.0 out of 5 stars thoroughly enjoyable fiction for those interested in bikers and/or mexican drug industry Dec 1 2013
By Trogdor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If you watch the Sons of Anarchy or have a passing interest in 1%er biker clubs and modern Mexican drug cartels, you will probably enjoy this book. Aside from the interesting plot, it is well written, obviously professionally edited, and the audio book is well read.

Book was hard to follow some places. As a book junkie I would rate it as a so-so read. It had some entertaining moments and like movies some dull ones. I would still recommend if you want a light read.
