Seated upon a hard driving motorcycle, eighteen inches off the wheel in front of him, Jay “Bird” Dobyns was working undercover for the ATF infilitrating one of the most notorious OMG's (Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs) — they were simply known as the Hells Angels.
In No Angel: My Harrowing Undercover Journey to the Inner Circle of the Hells Angels, Jay Dobyns details the deep undercover experience he and several other ATF agents embarked on getting inside the closely knit group of outlaws.
Each page is riveting. Each conversation, each drug or gun deal outlined for the reader to experience right along with “Bird” as he was known to the HA crew, is written with vivid memory. He recounts how on early assignments he traveled back and forth to an UC (undercover) assignment and would come back and coach is son's T-Ball team. As he dove deeper into the Hells Angels lifestyle, he had a more difficult time switching between devoted husband and father, and the illegal gun purchasing Hells Angel.
You can feel the pressure that Dobyns was under with each carefully chosen word or phrase. The blow ups between the boss & him. The cons that led to other cons, that led to other cons, that came back to the first con, and having to keep them all straight as to not give away his true identity. His relationships with ATF brass, his teammates, his family (real & Hells Angels) all had a significant impact on who he was & who he was becoming.
