Lost Treasures

American treasure hunters are convinced that there are missing fortunes just waiting to be discovered all around the country. But is it a harmless hobby, or do treasure hunters find themselves locked in a battle with other searchers--or even the government? We'll investigate the deepest mysteries of missing millions. From secret stashes of Confederate gold bullion, to silver coins and antique weapons, treasure hunters are scouring the country for hidden clues that might lead them to untold riches. How do they decode encrypted treasure maps? In 1971, $200,000 went missing in America's only unsolved airplane hijacking. Can following the money help to uncover the true identity of mysterious hijacker D.B. Cooper? Could secret agreements with criminal art dealers help the FBI to solve America's biggest art heist? Is it possible that even our country's history is under threat from thieves and crooks?

Hell's Angels

No club in America is more secretive than the Hells Angels. Members are forbidden to publically discuss their biker brotherhood and others who have "insider" information are too afraid to talk... until now. Get the real story about the Hells Angels from all sides--from motorcycle world insiders to club infiltrators to law enforcement officials. Special Agent, Jay Dobyns, exposes the shocking reasons why he feels the U.S. government is failing in the war against motorcycle clubs. Charles Falco, a government informant now in the Witness Protection Program, divulges the secrets he learned about the Hells Angels during the time he spent as an undercover outlaw motorcycle gang member. How were the Hells Angels able to transform themselves from a small crew of California bikers, dedicated to booze and babes, to an international criminal syndicate--one the FBI says poses a threat to six continents and a corporation worth millions of dollars?
