No Angel: My Harrowing Undercover Journey to the inner Circle of Hells Angels by Jay Dobyns and Nils Johnson-Shelton

The writers of Sons of Anarchy directly used some of the characters from this book. The Hells Angels look like a bunch of bungling bandits in this memoir from an ATF agent who infiltrated the biker gang.

The agent puffs himself up to be awesome but you never feel like you are really inside of it all. It’s mostly a tale of how the agent lost himself in the world of undercover policing and Serpico was so much better for that kind of tale. The agent, Jay, is self-important and at the end of it, I had no empathy for his job or what he did. Just another glory hound living on tales from the past under the guise of a patriotic cop…blah.

Although they got a lot of guns and a few drugs and touched lightly on the seedy parts of that world, watch Sons of Anarchy if you want to feel like you are more in depth
