Detail from 'Under and Alone'

From 1998 to 2000 William Queen went undercover for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and rode with the Mongols, a southern California motorcycle gang. His new book is Under and Alone.

Queen so immersed himself in the culture that his own sense of self became blurry. He left after 28 months, testifying against the gang.
