From the Back Cover
We all know about the Hells Angels: toughs on Harleys terrorizing the law-abiding; wild brawls and wild sex; drugs and cruelty, beatings, and even murder. But nobody really knows what it's like to be an Angel except an Angel. In this classic of Hells Angels literature, to be read alongside the works of Hunter S. Thompson and Sonny Barger, GeorgeWethern - for many years the vice president of the Oakland Chapter-tells it like it is.Until he found himself in reluctant service to the courts, Wethern was the quintessential Angel. Oneof the West Coast's top drug dealers, he was a man who loved bikes, fights, women, and drugs; a man who knew the deepest secrets of Angel life. Arrested, strung out, in despair, he bought a precarious freedom by testifying in major trials against Angels members - and then disappeared into the witness protection program. A Wayward Angel is a powerful book, a not-for-the-squeamish portrait of the drug scene and the alienation of modern life in late-twentieth-century California. We witness killings, million-dollar drug deals, "picnics" that are nothing short of orgies, and the sometimes bizarre inner workings of the biker club. This is a story uniquely American. And it is a terrifying tale - because it's real.See all Product Description

It really is fascinating to read first hand about tye types of activities, criminal and otherwise, these men were involved in. The account provides a realistic rather than romanticised view of the Hells Angels. Everything from gun and drug running to the extreme bond of 'brotherhood' and codes of honour they live by. Fascinating and unput-downable!
Easy to follow and read, you will find yourself on the back of the motorbike hanging on for dear life as the narrator takes us through life as a HA.
For all you hard-core bikers. This book will not disappoint.
I gave this a five star review because it was an eye opener for anyone who was thinking of going down this road,
Do you , don't you ? And if your accepted .GOOD LUCK !!!
