Betrayal, Murder and Greed
The True Story of a Bounty Hunter and a Bail Bond Agent
by Pam Phree and Mike “Darkside" Beakley
She is a bail bond agent. He is a bounty hunter. When they met in the course of business, neither suspected that over the next decade they would form a unique partnership, one in which they rooted out shocking crimes of Betrayal, Murder and Greed.
It’s a match made in heaven, but not for criminals prowling the street. Bail bond agent Pam Phree and bounty hunter Mike “Darkside” Beakley have waged a war on crime. A modern day action movie brought to life, these two avengers of justice have successfully worked together to take down some of the nation’s most dangerous fugitives on the lam for everything from corruption to murder while, at the same time, fighting the corruption in their own business. They take you inside what really happens, as this bail bond agent and her bounty hunter go about catching their marks by any means necessary.
Here are their most shocking stories, including the shoot-out that injured Beakley and killed his partner-in-training, the downfall of a cocaine confederation and the infamous “Robin Hood” case, where a wanted fugitive sought to emulate the storybook hero, but committed dark, heinous crimes unbecoming to even the Sherriff of Nottingham. Are their friends really people they can trust, or is there really corruption embroiled in the bail bond process? Phree and Beakley also investigate potential “dirty” agents in search of the truth behind the whispers and innuendos taking place behind closed doors.
Betrayal, Murder and Greed: The True Story of a Bounty Hunter and a Bail Bond Agent reveals, for the first time, some of the brutal battles in the ongoing war against crime, told through the eyes of a bounty hunter on what goes down on the streets and the process of capturing the savage criminals Mike brings to justice.
