BONNIE AND CLYDE - A LOVE STORY
“This man can write! This is a book that takes you into the hearts, minds, souls, and lives of people we've been accustomed to dismiss as losers or worse. With the sheer power of his prose, Bill Brooks takes you on a time trip you'll never forget."—Thomas Fleming
She preferred guys with an edge to them. Bad Boys, her mama called them. Then one night she met Clyde and knew her mama was right. If there was ever a bad boy, it was Clyde Chestnut Barrow. He had that look: those dark secretive eyes that never looked directly into yours. He had a pretty face and a smooth way of talking, and she liked his silk shirt and the way he fitted into it. He liked her, too. They were destined to be star-crossed lovers who blazed across the hot Southwest in a time of drought and trouble. She wanted to be an actress, and he wanted to rob banks. In an era that gave birth to the likes of Al Capone, John Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Baby Face Nelson, Bonnie and Clyde were to become Americas version of Romeo and Juliet—with guns!
Their love for each other was without rhyme or reason, their attraction and bond unbreakable. They vowed the only thing that would ever separate them was a bullet—a vow the Texas Rangers hoped to make come true. Bonnie, the beautiful petite blond poet, was Clyde's equal in every respect. She was his lover and partner, and was willing to die for her man. Clyde was tough and agile, a troubled soul of a man who loved only two things: bank robbing and Bonnie Parker. Whether behind the wheel of a fast-moving Ford V-8, or in the sultry bedroom of a Texas motel, their love and lives were unparalleled in the annals of history. Theirs is more than just a story of a fast and furious short and violent life—theirs is a story of an unshakable love and devotion few ever experience.
“Brooks is rapidly carving out a niche for himself as the pet laureate of iconic American outlaws with stylized historical novels…. A remarkably talented writer.”—Booklist
"The reader can almost smell the burning rubber as the pair fled newly robbed banks, eluding police and blazing guns."—THE DAILY OKLAHOMAN
