Monroe is an impetuous teenager who seems to have lost her way after the death of her mother a couple of years before. She has been getting into trouble ever since, and at the beginning of this story, she is on probation for an act of vandalism. Her family has a shared passion for gangster lore, which they indulge in by watching movies and collecting memorabilia. Her father owns a supper club that has Jazz Age entertainment and has the opportunity to display his collection of gangster memorabilia. The story begins on the night that her father has acquired some rare Bonnie and Clyde items. Fascinated by their legend, Monroe impulsively starts to handle the items -- and that's when the trouble starts to snowball. It's a fun read that captures the sometime rashness of a teenage mind, worrying about consequences but going ahead anyway. (It's an interesting contrast between Monroe and Jack who appears to be overly cautious.) The story is filled with local color and references, Bonnie and Clyde facts, and some Half-Dead peripheral characters.

A most satisfying read!! The experienced team of unscrupulous Bonnie and Clyde are trying to outsmart the young and untried duo of Monroe and Jack. Both teams are racing for the possession of one set of bodies. Who will win this shoot-out? The satisfying answer to that question is found at the finish line of the race at the conclusion of this book. All problems are resolved. Or are they? This fast paced book was hard to put down.
