From Publishers Weekly
In 1996, Dave corridor, an unemployed ex-biker, came upon himself dealing with a jail sentence for a minor marijuana cost. With biker neighbors who linked to the Ohio department of the Aryan Nations—then thought of the FBI's most threatening household terrorist group—and its charismatic, bloodthirsty pastor, Harold Ray Redfeairn, corridor agreed to aid the FBI infiltrate the AN. corridor encounters this quasi-Christian cult that translates the Bible as a weird and wonderful racist, anti-Semitic tract and advocates violent revolution to break non-Aryan races. Swallowing his disgust, he patiently wins Redfeairn's self belief, finally turning into his right-hand guy and detailed successor. As offered the following, the realm of gun-obsessed, antigovernment fringe teams, whose weapon-worship turns into their final undoing, horrifies and entertains. Hall's paintings ended in a number of arrests and at last crippled the AN, which has no longer recovered. Neither has corridor, who claims, if you happen to dance with the satan, the satan doesn't switch, the satan alterations you. The publication shifts among Hall's and FBI agent Burkey's views, however the major voice belongs to crime author Ramsland who knits those tales right into a seamless drama choked with suspense, shiny characters and colourful occasions.
