Overview

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow's crime spree and grisly deaths have become the stuff of legend. And like all legends, much of the reality of the events has been glossed over with the passage of time. Author John Gilmore's mission, to tell the real story of Bonnie and Clyde, has unseated the popular misconceptions that have held the public's imagination. Gilmore places the reader squarely inside a succession of stolen cars on a dusty, two-year, devil-take-the-high-road spree of robberies, shoot-outs and murder—all the way to its infamous end in a torrent of bullets and blood. Gilmore delivers a captivating and factual tale of betrayal, demonization and bloodthirsty revenge. He exposes the demise of Bonnie and Clyde as an outright assassination—no due process, just a secretly mandated murder of Barrow and anyone unlucky enough to be with him.

"If you're going to read one book on Bonnie & Clyde, this is it! - Marshall Terrill, best-selling author

"This book is a masterpiece of care, lyricism, joy and sadness in the midst of grief. Gilmore made me want to meet these people, to experience their personas, the auras that people put out. I was swept away... I couldn't put it down!" - Lois Banner, author and professor of History and Gender studies at the University of Southern California

"The most exciting, peeling-away of the human layers of two of the most infamous crime figures in American history . . . For the first time, we are truly taken inside these notorious characters.” - Lawrence Grobel, biographer

Heavily illustrated with rare photos from the author's collection.

    This book is a joke!

    I read and collect books concerning the late twenties and thirties about the lawless decade. Many writers have done excellent research about their subjects but this isn't one of those times. Cute conversation and an attempt to justify anything these two outlaws did is an insult to readers.
