Editorial Reviews


Toro magazine

“Read it at your peril and you won’t put out the light before going to sleep.”

<em>Owen Sound Sun-Times</em>

“Riveting, compelling, exciting reading. Peter Edwards is not only one of the finest journalists in Canada, but also a terrific storyteller. A must read.”

Antonio Nicaso, organized crime expert and author

“A gripping and eye-opening account of the rise and fall of the Bandidos in Canada . . . Peter Edwards’s account is personal, spellbinding, and eye-opening.”

“Peter Edwards knows how real bad guys eat, sleep, and breathe, and on the page brings them to life—even the dead ones—better than any other true crime writer.”

Linwood Barclay, internationally bestselling author

“A fascinating glimpse into a ragtag group of misfits . . . This hard-to-put-down, must-read book provides a fascinating glimpse into the biker culture and how one sad-sack gang crashed and burned so spectacularly.”

<em>London Free Press</em>

“Peter Edwards is one of the best crime writers in Canada and our most reliable reporter on organized crime. He is a strong storyteller who has followed outlaw bikers for the last two decades with a lively and direct style.”

Michel Auger, author of <em>The Biker Who Shot Me: Reflections of a Crime Reporter</em>
