A legend in the biker community, Peter “Big Pete” James was the most revered gangster in the Outlaw Nation. He first perfected his skills with the Hells Angels, the Outlaws’ chief rival, before persuading thousands of disgruntled members from splintered Outlaws chapters to unite. Together, they formed a powerful criminal syndicate involved in extortion, contract murders, drugs,and arms trafficking, money laundering, and assassinations. Then a shocking medical diagnosis knocked James sideways, forcing him to face a new life on the outside of the organization he built, dodging snitches, federal law enforcement, and contract hits.
In The Last Chicago Boss, James provides a startling and unprecedented expose into the inner workings of the Outlaw Nation from the unique perspective of its renowned leader, all brought to life through never-before-revealed interviews, police files, wiretaps, recordings, and trial transcripts.
|A book written about Peter James or “Big Pete” the boss of the Outlaws. James with the help of the author takes you through his life starting out as a kid in school and how an uncle had a real profound effect on him which changed him for the future. This would lead him to eventually into life with the Outlaws. He would be a boss after “Taco Bowman” was in prison who was said to still be the big boss. Big Pete goes into a lot of different activities some he started some he took over. He also wants each chapter to go separate. As much as I found this to be a good read, I don’t know how much of the total is true, true MC usually doesn’t give out business, but maybe times have changed. Overall well written and entertaining. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 3 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com (less)|
