Description

Bonnie and Clyde. Saving democracy, one bank robbery at a time.

As the country limps out of the Great Depression, America needs new heroes.

Like Bonnie and Clyde.

Turns out, they never died that fateful day in 1934. The photos of their bloodied bullet-riddled corpses and the funerals were faked. Instead, the outlaw lovers were kidnapped by a secret organization defending American democracy and the working class from capitalist greed. Forced into a covert life, they are given a dangerous and desperate mission--stop a cabal of wealthy industrialists from assassinating President Roosevelt and sinking his progressive New Deal policies.

Can true love, a fast car and a Browning Automatic Rifle save America from itself?

Bonnie and Clyde: Resurrection Road tells a fascinating "what-if" story of the return of two unlikely heroes thrust into a fight against inequality during America's Great Depression--a historical thriller with surprising contemporary relevance.

Review quote

"Hays and McFall make their Depression-era tale timely with reflections on wealthy fat cats and a rigged economic system that still ring true. More than that, the story is an exciting ride, with tight corners, narrow escapes, and real romantic heat between Bonnie and Clyde. Outlaws become patriots in this imaginative, suspenseful what-if story." Kirkus Reviews

"Centered on an intriguing question: What if Bonnie and Clyde weren't gunned down in 1934, but were instead kidnapped by a secret organization that wanted to ensure the New Deal overcame bitter opposition from the 1 percent? Bonnie and Clyde: Resurrection Road is a taut, fast-paced, fun read that cuts agilely back and forth between the anti-heroes' Depression-era escapades and a modern-day reporter trying to revive his career with a big scoop, all while addressing serious topics such as income inequality." The Oregonian

"A fantastic story of actions, consequences, and the driving forces that turn the chaos of youth into a measured effort to achieve redemption in adulthood. Readers seeking an engrossing read that continually twists history to provide thought-provoking new outcomes will relish the blend of action and psychology that make Bonnie and Clyde: Resurrection Road exceptional." Midwest Book Review

"Bonnie and Clyde: Resurrection Road posits that the murderous duo didn't perish, but instead are given a choice: Embark on a secret life to save American democracy, or pay the ultimate price. Will America's favorite bad seeds save the day, and their own skins in the process? As the rich get richer and the middle class becomes more desperate in present-day America, Resurrection Road is a timely reminder that sometimes the solution to a problem comes from the least likely source. Sex, danger and intrigue, coupled with just the right dose of cheeky humor." East Oregonian
