Heavy Duty People (Brethren Trilogy #1) by Iain Parke & Martin Robertson


Damage’s club has had an offer it can’t refuse, to patch over to join The Brethren.

But what does this mean for Damage and his brothers?

What choices will they have to make?

What history might it reawaken?

And why is The Brethren making this offer?

Loyalty to his club and his brothers has been Damage’s life and route to wealth, but what happens when business becomes serious and brother starts killing brother?

Told from a club member’s viewpoint it looks at what happens when ‘business’ runs up against friendship. When your club and your ‘brothers’ are your life, how far will you go for your brothers? And when does loyalty and freedom become exploitation?

My Review

The story is fiction but feels and reads very much like a biography it is so well written.

It is a story of a British biker and the inside world of outlaw Motorcycle Clubs, think Sons of Anarchy but in the UK!
It’s nice to finally get a biker gang set in the UK, most things written or shown on tv are mostly set in the US.

It is a world where loyalty is number one. Written in the first person, outlaw biker gang member Martin “Damage” Robertson takes us into the fascinating and secretive world of the biker gangs. His story takes us from his early beginnings as a young biker taken under the wing of the local bike gang, The Reivers, threw The Legion and onto one of the big 6 world-renowned outlaw biker gangs, The Brethren.

From the rights of passage, gang member structure and brotherhood. How loyalty and honour are the tools of survival. And how by managing your reputation, your reputation will manage your business for you.

This was not like any other MC book out there, that I have seen.

I didn’t realise when i started reading this book that it was in a series of books, but i am so glad that it is as this one leaves you with a massive cliffhanger!!!

Now I am off to find the next book, and i would advise you do too, probably before you finish this one so you can crack on straight away and not have to wait to find out what happens next!! (I wish I had!)

The Kindle edition is at an amazing price of £0.99 from Amazon and can be found here
