Hell's Angels: Taking Care of Businessis the ground-breaking book that launched Yves Lavigne's investigative series into theHell's Angels. This book traces the growth of the Hell's Angels organization from the early, rowdy "club" to the insidious, far-reaching superstructure that now exists. Today's Angels still value the grinning death's head, but they keep it for funerals, runs, initiations, and laying heavies. Angels, like the undercover policemen who tail them, prefer street clothes to blend with their surroudings. In a world of drugs, prostitution and pornography, the shadow the Angels' wings falls on all of us.Hell's Angels: Taking care of Businessis a fascinating and startling read.
