Jay "Jaybird" Dobyns
Jay Dobyns is retired federal agent who spent his career working undercover. He is also a New York Times best-selling author behind his book No Angel, My Harrowing Undercover Journey to the InnerCircle of the Hells Angels. His story and book are currently being adapted for a Hollywood film.
Jay has achieved worldwide notoriety as one of history's most daring undercover operators during high-octane covert operations targeting the world’s most deadly criminals and organizations.
Jay successfully infiltrated scores of the most brutal and violent criminals and illegal enterprises in existence. He operated amongst vicious street and prison gangs, gun running groups, drug trafficking organizations, bomb makers and home invasion crews.
Jay routinely played the role of a shrewdly calculating professional hit man during federal murder-for- hire investigations. Jay is best known for his landmark infiltration of the notorious Hells Angels biker gang. He was the first ever law enforcement officer to successfully defeat the gang’s multilayered security measures to become a full patched member (of the legendary Skull Valley charter), a fact that club’s leadership vociferously denies to this day.
A defense attorney once described Dobyns as:
"...a government-trained ‘Predator’ repeatedly sent on seek and destroy missions in search of drugs, guns and violence, with instructions to succeed at any cost and without regard for the agent himself or those he crosses paths with.”
Jay’s 2009 memoir, "No Angel" is now published in twelve different languages and available in over twenty different countries.
