Description

THE REDEMPTION OF BONNIE AND CLYDE

Saving the working class from a river of greed.

The year is 1935 and the Great Depression has America in a death grip of poverty, unemployment and starvation. But the New Deal is rekindling hope, with federally funded infrastructure projects, like Hoover Dam, putting people back to work. Set to harness the mighty Colorado River for electricity and irrigation, the dam is an engineering marvel and symbol of American can-do spirit.

So, why is someone trying to blow it up?

When an informant on the construction site is murdered, Bonnie and Clyde spared--from their gruesome deaths and forced into a covert life working for the government, are given their second assignment: stop the bomb and protect the thousands of laborers and families in the company town. It is their most dangerous mission yet: working for a living.

Can the notorious lovers put aside their criminal ways long enough to find out who wants to extinguish the American dream, and hopefully reclaim a shred of redemption along the way?

The thrilling story cuts back and forth between the modern era where a reporter interviews the now-elderly Bonnie Parker, and the dangerous 1930s undercover exploits of Bonnie and Clyde, as they are thrust into a fight to defend the working class against corporate greed.

Dam Nation continues the explosive "what-if" series about two unlikely heroes fighting to defend the working class during the Great Depression, a historical thriller with unsettling contemporary parallels.

Resurrection Road is the first book in the Bonnie and Clyde series.

Review quote

"A crisply written, well-researched, and thoroughly entertaining romance/thriller/mystery. As in Resurrection Road, Hays and McFall evoke time and place well in this sequel. The story's politics are fresh and timely. Readers will find Bonnie and Clyde to be great company, and the novel's framing story (the 1984 recollections of the widowed Bonnie) gives their relationship an extra layer of poignancy." Kirkus Reviews

"A rollicking good read. The real history of the rise of unions and worker rights against the backdrop of a nation recovering from the Great Depression contributes an engrossing, realistic scenario to a vivid read that blends fiction with nonfiction elements in a way that makes the book hard to put down. Dam Nation is the second book in the speculative fiction series; but newcomers need no prior familiarity with the series, in order to find it accessible." Midwest Book Review
