Outlaw Biker is the sequel to the bestselling Biker by Jerry Langton.
In Outlaw Biker, Langton explores the world of Russian and eastern European organized crime syndicates and how they have established an unshakeable grip on crime in North America through the use of overwhelming violence and fear tactics.
Biker ended with protagonist Ned Aiken in a witness protection program, but tempted by the lure of easy money. In Outlaw Biker, he succumbs to it. First as a drug and weapon runner for the Russian Mafia, then as a respected and vital part of a Midwestern gang, Aiken again becomes deeply involved in organized crime. In it, he must avoid the dangers posed by law enforcement, the bikers he ratted on in the previous book as well as ambitious members of his own gang. Through his experiences, the reader is not only engrossed by the exciting storyline, but also informed of how these gangs work and the threat they represent. From its violent beginning to its shocking conclusion, Outlaw Biker is a thrilling and revealing look at a subject many are interested in, but few know much about.
Langton is in contact with a number of members of law enforcement in North America and Eastern Europe who have dealt with these gangs. And he has even convinced three former members of Eastern European crime organizations - two Russian and one Ukrainian - to share their experiences with him.
With the success of portrayals of Eastern European crime organizations in films like Eastern Promises, Ronin and The Dark Knight, television shows like The Sopranos, books such as McMafia and even video games like Grand Theft Auto, interest in these groups is spreading.
