Undercover : het ware verhaal van de undercover agent die infiltreerde in Amerika's meest beruchte motorbende by William Queen( Book )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in Dutch and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Undercover brengt je rechtstreeks in contact met de meest criminele kant van de Amerikaanse samenleving. Deze infiltratie-actie is een van de meest besproken undercover operaties binnen een criminele motorbende ooit. Vietnam-veteraan, politieman en motor-enthousiast William Queen infiltreerde het San Fernando Chapter van de meest beruchte Amerikaanse motorgang: The Mongols. Om hun achterdocht weg te nemen en zijn trouw aan de bende te bewijzen voert Queen vele gevaarlijke opdrachten uit. Zo bestuurt hij de vluchtwagen tijdens overvallen. Ook werkt hij mee aan geheime wapentransporten en grote drugsdeals. Steeds meer raakt William Queen geïsoleerd van zijn eigen familie en vrienden. Hij levert zijn eigen identiteit in en wordt een echte Mongol. Ondanks het voortdurend misdadige karakter van de motorgang maakt Queen dan kennis met hun onderlinge kameraadschap en trouw. Lezers schreven: - 'Dit is by far het beste motorgangboek ooit geschreven!' - 'Voor alle true crime lezers: LEES DIT BOEK!' - 'Een avontuur van de bovenste plak. Geweldig.' Na zijn 28 maanden bij de Mongols schreef William Queen Undercover. Zijn boek werd een enorme bestseller. De filmrechten zijn gekocht door Icon, de productiemaatschappij van Mel Gibson.

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

7 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

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

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries 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 kicking-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 Queen 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. During his initial "prospecting" phase, Queen was at the mercy of crank-fueled criminal psychopaths who sought to have him test his mettle and prove his fealty by any means necessary, from selling (and doing) drugs, to arms trafficking, stealing motorcycles, driving getaway cars, and, in one shocking instance, stitching up the face of a Mongol "ol' lady" after a particularly brutal beating at the hands of her boyfriend. Yet despite the constant criminality of the gang, for whom planning cop killings and gang rapes were business as usual, Queen also came to see the genuine camaraderie they shared. When his lengthy undercover work totally isolated Queen from family, his friends, and ATF colleagues, the Mongols felt like the only family he had left. "I had no doubt these guys genuinely loved Billy St. John and would have laid down their lives for him. But they wouldn't hesitate to murder Billy Queen." From Queen's first sleight of hand with a line of methamphetamine in front of him and a knife at his throat, to the fearsome face-off with their decades-old enemy, the Hell's Angels (a brawl that left three bikers dead), to the heartbreaking scene of a father ostracized at Parents' Night because his deranged-outlaw appearance precluded any interaction with regular citizens, Under and Alone is a breathless, adrenaline-charged read that puts you on the street with some of the most dangerous men in America and with the law enforcement agents who risk everything to bring them in.
