description

"We are the people our parents warned us about" is the motto of the Bandidos, one of the world’s most feared outlaw motorcycle gangs. For ten years, Steve Utah was a Bandidos insider. He arranged the security of their clubhouses. He "cooked" ecstasy and ice for them. He was at meetings where interstate and overseas drug and weapons smuggling was planned. He saw stolen military weapons being sold. He witnessed vicious beatings, helped dump corpses. He saw men executed in front of him.

It all became too much and, in an attempt to regain control of his life, Utah resorted to the unthinkable: he rolled over to the Federal police and told them all he knew about the Bandidos.

This shocking, unflinching, tragic story is Steve Utah’s confession. He knows he is a dead man running—that inevitably the Bandido code will be honoured and he will be silenced. But not before Utah gets his chance to wake Australians to the looming threat in their midst—the relentless rise of sophisticated organised crime networks inside outlaw motorcycle gangs and the apparent inability of the police and legal system to deal with it.
