What disappointed you about Dead Man Running?
This book was extremely boring and in my opinion very poorly written. There were a few ok points but for the most part, it was a total waste of time. It seemed to keep switching from an AUTO-biography to a text book about random crime facts and statistics that had little to do with the book, to a biography. This book seemed to be all over the place with the writing and very hard to follow. The only thing good about the audiobook was the narrator, who did a good job of reading the text and being very articulate. The narrator was the only thing about the book that was worth anything. Don't waste you time or money. Skip this one, you'll be much better off for it.

The authors have had a decent stab at tackling the life of the bikey gangs of Australia, principally through a Bandido 'turncoat' who had had enough.
This does not make for easy listening but hopefully has performed a public service in Australia where is seems that at that time at least 2005-7 law enforcement against these murderous gangs was hamstrung by interstate police rivalry ,an ineffective federal serious crime organisation, corruption and rival gang cooperation.
They note when they think that their source , Steven Utah, is telling the truth and clearly state when they have reservations about his testimony.
I think that they have done a very commendable job and anyone who harbours romantic views of biker gangs on the open road will surely be disabused.

Very good story, although a little factual, but to be expected. recommend it though
The narrator is great- well done to him. Clearly very well resarched but a bit repetitive with a timeline that seemed to jump around a little- struggled to finish this one. I was hoping for more of a thrilling/ suspensful first-person account of the story but it was not this.

Gee this book has some serious information that this guy claims is true. It is very informative yet troubling to know that people can show such disloyalty and lack of regard for others if they choose to associate and be part of to any degree a lifestyle or way of life that the general populous do not live by
