On the night of October 18, 1978, small-town biker Bill Matiyek was having a drink in a Port Hope bar. A gunman suddenly walked up and fired 3 bullets into his head. Members of the rival bike club Satan''s Choice, who were in the bar, quickly vanished. Was it a cold-blooded gangland-style execution, as the Crown Attorney and police would argue, or the compulsive act of a single gunman? Was the trial that followed driven by persistent police work or a police frame-up? Did the bikers conspire to murder or did the law conspire to convict them? Guilt by association, unreliable eyewitness testimony, suppression of evidence, botched police procedures--call the results justice or call them revenge, the question remains: Who really killed Bill Matiyek, and why?
