Yokche is the story of Chase Larson, a man who has spent most of his life on the back of a bike. He and his biker buddies vow revenge on one of their own kind when someone takes away his only sister. That is how it works with the bikers; they take care of their own. None of this going to the courts-and-lawyers stuff, just biker justice or vengeance or whatever you want to call it. So on and on it goes throughout Florida, Chase and his buddies fighting their way to find the truth through crooked lawyers, mad scientists, destruction and death. And just when everybody thinks it's over, the chase keeps on going. But Chase is relentless: he has to have justice for his baby sister.

This book works to dispel the stock stereotypes of bikers. The guys described here are good people who just want to see that justice is served for Chase’s little sister, and they are willing to go the ends of the earth to see that done. The story lags a bit in places, but on the whole is solid. The characters could be fleshed out more to make the reader care more about what happens to them.

If you want to kill a few hours in an agreeable manner, by all means read this book. But it is not earthshaking enough for me to urge you to run right out and buy it this minute.
