An intriguing look into the bail bond and bounty hunting industries, highly recommended

The life of a bounty hunter isn't as simple as television would lead you to believe. "Betrayal, Murder, and Greed: The True Story of a Bounty Hunter and a Bail Bond Agent" tells the tale of Pam Phree, a woman who has entered the bail bond industry and has vowed to turn the typically shady industry into a more respectable when her peers often exploit it out of greed. It is also the story of Mike Beakley, a former cop who has taken to become a licensed bounty hunter. These two tell the story of trying to keep their moral ground when their competitors really burn the line between the law and crime. "Betrayal, Murder, and Greed" is an intriguing look into the bail bond and bounty hunting industries, highly recommended.


I thought Mr.Beakley (Darkside) book brought a real human feel to the plight of the bail bonds trade. As a private citizen I never really had an insight to the bail bond world. I appreciate the bounty hunter for returning those who should be back to court and jail ...furthering the safety of us the public. So thanks for doing your job Darkside. To top it off taking the time to write an entertaining book of how this system works!! Good to see that one can retain humor pursuing those who are looking not to get caught!!

Eye Opening Read

I just loved this book. I had no idea what bail bond agents and bounty hunters actually did and how dangerous it can be. I like how the authors each told their own story of how they ended up in their crazy but rewarding profession. The books moves at a fast pace and is an easy and fun read. You will definitely learn a few things that you didn't know before!

Great cover to cover -- Left me wanting more!

Rick Silcox December 21, 2009 at 5:43pm To be fair, I know Mike and Pam, and they asked me to comment on their book. The first thing I thought of is how can I possibly do this and be objective. I'm most certainly not a book reviewer, but here it is as honestly as I can give it. Everytime I picked the book up, I had to make myself put it down. It's possible that it's because I know them and I was learning so much I hadn't known before, but I will guarantee that I was both interested and entertained throughout the entire book. There were some surprises and a great ending. If you are a person that enjoys "True Crime" or just true life, wants to learn about the history and tribulations of bond agents and bounty hunters, wants to find out things you probably don't know about the justice system, wants to know more about the crime and corruption surrounding our everday lives (not always from the bad guys), likes the exitement of the hunt and the thrill of the win, wants to see where two people CAN make a difference, wants to read about two people who CARE about doing the right thing and fighting the odds, or wants to read about people that will stand by each other and watch each other's back, then this book is for you. Enjoy!

All that can be said is... Wow !!

From the opening page to the closing comments, this book took me on a wide, scary, funny and educationial ride. The best part ??.. it is apparently true. I actually found news reports online from the Tacoma area that were the same stories as those in the book. The book is well written and an easy read. The chapters were perfect for a quick read or a long airline trip. Some of the more exciting chapters HAD to be re-read. So well written and so powerful that I felt myself reading faster, faster, faster until my heart was racing and brow was sweating. I had to immediately re-read them to be sure I had not missed anything. Many of the stories both horrified me that there could be real people, so evil, living among us and gave me hope that desipte the evil, good seems to win out. Even if this win comes at a terrible cost, it comes. A great read.
