Queen risked his life when he joined the Mongols as bearded biker Billy St. John. His adventures with one of America?s most notorious bike gangs, where he explains "murder and mayhem have become simply a lifestyle choice," resulted in the convictions of more than 50 Mongols and earned him an impressive cache of awards. More important, after harrowing trials that included selling drugs to driving getaway cars, Queen lived to tell all about it. Queen recounts these two years with a straightforward gruffness that captivated critics. His story is tight, suspenseful, and unstoppable?you know he?s going to bust the men who became like brothers to him, but it?s just a matter of when and how

As an agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, William Queen has tackled a number of challenging cases, including going undercover to investigate a group of violent skinheads and infiltrating and busting a ring trafficking in high-powered explosives, drugs, and firearms. In the winter of 1985, he faces his toughest mission to date: he must apprehend Mark Stephens, a notorious narcotics trafficker who has been terrorizing Southern California with frequent rampages involving machine guns and hand grenades. Living in the backwoods, Stephens is a cunning survivalist, but he has finally met his match in Queen, who, as a kid, would go hunting and trapping and living for weeks in the wild. Queen will use these skills--along with surveillance, confidential informants, and intelligence gathering--as he doggedly tracks his dangerous quarry, a chase that culminates in a showdown high in the San Bernardino Mountains.--From publisher description

Under and alone : [the true story of the undercover agent who infiltrated America's most violent outlaw motorcycle gang] by William Queen( Recording )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 1998, William Queen was a veteran law enforcement agent with a lifelong love of motorcycles and a lack of patience with paperwork. When a "confidential informant" made contact with his boss at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, offering to take an agent inside the San Fernando chapter of the Mongols (the scourge of Southern California, and one of the most dangerous gangs in America), Queen jumped at the chance, not realizing that he was kick-starting the most extensive undercover operation inside an outlaw motorcycle gang in the history of American law enforcement. Nor did Queen suspect that he would penetrate the gang so successfully that he would become a fully "patched-in" member, eventually rising through their ranks to the office of treasurer, where he had unprecedented access to evidence of their criminal activity. After he spent twenty-eight months as "Billy St. John," the bearded, beer-swilling, Harley-riding gang-banger, the truth of his identity became blurry, even to himself
