wanted to like this book. It was written by family of Clyde, so I thought that it might have some interesting insight into the minds of the two notorious criminals. But the book skipped from event to event without going deeper into the whys AT ALL. I did not enjoy this book one tiny little bit. I thought the writing was stilted. I thought the story lacked emotion and didn't get us involved with the characters at all. There are MUCH better books on the subject out there!

This book is superbly written and photo released info of the barrow gang is uncanny. I was always hoping there would be a FACTional book published about the gang. Phillip Steel and Mrs. Barrow made an awesome team in giving us the REAL TRUTH about Bonnie/Clyde/Buck and the rest of the gang. Thankyou Phillip Steele for giving this reader and shamelessly facinated fan of Bonnie and Clyde, a chance to see who they really were.
