Peter Paradis, a former male stripper and cocaine addict, rose to become a boss in the Rock Machine biker gang, only to later turn police informant. In Nasty Business, Paradis exorcises his personal demons as he recounts his life as an outlaw biker fighting a bloody street battle that captivated a city and country. The 1990s biker war on the streets of Montreal pit the established Hells Angels against upstarts the Rock Machine in a battle for the drug trade. Bombs blew up buildings and cars, while bullets cut down members from both gangs as well as unlucky civilians. After being shot by a Hells hit squad, Paradis "dreamed of having a Hells killed, and then seeing 30 or 40 of his fellow bikers at a wake in one of their clubhouses. We'd set up bazookas nearby and just blast the building into little pieces." His anger quickly turns to fatigue as the police close in and the Hells begin winning the war, spurring a penniless and ostracized Paradis to turn informant. Nasty Business provides a humbled look at the oft-glorified world of biker gangs, while exposing its reality of crime and terror. " (170noto)
