Summary In 1996, the Aryan Nations was the most dangerous white supremacist group in the United States. This brutally violent neo-Nazi organization dreamed of carving a homeland out of the American Northwest--a dream financed by robbery, intimidation, and murder. The FBI had sought to infiltrate them for years. Enter Dave Hall, a tattooed, 350-pound, six-foot-four former biker. A thoughtful, articulate man with a photographic memory and an unshakeable core of decency, Hall was looking for a new direction in life when FBI agent Tym Burkey found him. But a short-term assignment grew to something much bigger as Hall became the Ohio Aryan Nations leader's right-hand man, and suspected that a significant terrorist action was being planned--but with the ever-present threat of discovery and death hanging over his head, he began to break down psychologically. But it was too late to back out: together, Hall and Burkey would have to finish their dance with the devil.--From publisher description.
