Dave Spiteri took almost seven years to write his insider’s account of life with an outlaw bikie club, yet he was one of the very first club presidents in Australia.
The longtime Rosebank local finally launched his book, called The Prez, this month and held several book-signing functions around the region. Initial reports suggest locals are lapping up the tales, a work of non-fiction but based on real events in Dave’s colourful life.
Tales abound of crooked cops, sex, drugs and violence in a story tracing the rise and influence of bikie clubs in Australia. He says his book has soul, unlike other ‘sensationalist’ books on bikie culture. The paperback, published by HarperCollins, is available at all leading bookstores and some local stores.
