Hell's Angels: Taking Care of Business is the ground-breaking book that launched Yves Lavigne's investigative series into the Hell'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 Business is a fascinating and startling read.

Review: Hell's Angels: Three Can Keep a Secret If Two Are Dead'

User Review  - David - Goodreads

Hell's Angels: Three Can Keep a Secret If Two Are Dead by Yves Lavigne (Lyle Stuart 1987)(364). This is a combination expose and puff piece that fails to cover any new ground and fails to add anything new to the legacy of stories. My rating: 6/10, finished 7/14/14. Read full review
