Satan’s Choice

LORNE Campbell was an enforcer for outlaw biker’s club Satan’s Choice for more than 30 years before patching over to the Hells Angels.

The product of a violent childhood, he just wanted a place to belong.

He found brotherhood with his fellow one per centers, and a code he has lived his life by. He killed a rival biker to save his brothers and has gone to extreme lengths to protect his honour and his club.

Written with dark humour and raw honesty, and filled with unforgettable characters living life on their own terms, Satan’s Choice is a unique insight into an outlaw world seen through the eyes of one proud and unrepentant biker.

To win a copy, send this week’s masthead to Satan’s Choice competition.
