Sometimes I need to take a break from theology and read historical non-fictions or account of law enforcement.  Here’s one such book with a Christian reflection below.No Angel Jay Dobyns

Jay Dobyns. No Angel: My Harrowing Undercover Journey to the Inner Circle of the Hells Angels.  New York, NY: Crown Publishers, February 10th, 2009. 328 pp.

The story of an undercover ATF federal agent who worked to infiltrate the Hells Angels Motorbike gang in Arizona.  It is a spellbinding account of Jay Dobyns’ work and how it affected him as a result of this undercover operation.  The background story that the book provides of Dobyns life is just as interesting as Operation Black Biscuit (the operation against the Hells Angels).  Dobyns was a college football star turned federal agent.  On his first day with the ATF he was shot in the chest while pursuing a fugitve and while most people’s brush with death would make them think twice of their career for Dobyns the adrenaline rush of surviving death made him want to stay around for more.  Not only did he stay with the ATF but Dobyns also decided to go undercover.  He was quite an experienced undercover agent when he went on assignment with the Hells Angels case.  It’s quite a read especially for the general readers since it provide a window into the world of outlaw motor bicycle gangs.   Equally interesting was the window the book provides to the world of undercover cops and how they tried to enter into the bikers scene.  These guys are incredibly smart and quick witted.
