In 2013, Australia achieved a unique place in the history of outlaw motorcycle gangs, boasting the highest per capita membership in the world. So just what are these gangs, and who makes up their membership? Drawing on insights from his experience as a former Sydney detective, Duncan McNab gives the inside history of outlaw biker gangs in Australia. From the bad old days of the 1960s when the first outlaw biker clubs entered into amphetamine manufacture, through to the 1984 Milperra Massacre that made world headlines, to the Sydney airport brawl between the Hell's Angels and Comancheros culminating in the brutal death of Anthony Zervas, Outlaw Bikers in Australia sheds light on how the "one per cent deviants" have gained a stranglehold on the recreational drug market and are becoming major players in the international outlaw scene. This is the dramatic story of the rise and rise of Australia's outlaw motorcycle clubs by the bestselling author of Killing Mr Rent-a-Kill, The Usual Suspect - The Life of Abe Saffron and The Dodger.
