Decades in the making, On the Run with Bonnie & Clyde is a fast moving, gut-wrenching, highly original exploration by author Gilmore into the lives and death of the “star-crossed lovers,” Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, undying icons of American crime. Breaking away from the usual police-blotter procedurals, this new work delves into the personalities and nature of these notorious outlaws. In his unique and uncompromising style, 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. In this relentless narrative, Gilmore presents a controversial, critical view of the unlawful ambush murder of Bonnie Parker, that left 41 bullet holes in her small body and crippled leg. She was never officially accused of a violent crime.
