On the Run With Bonnie & Clyde is a fast moving, highly original exploration into the personalities of these so-called "public enemies,” Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. A thoroughly researched, in-depth study of the true natures of these icons of infamy, by an acclaimed author well-versed in the dark fields of violence. On the Run With Bonnie & Clyde breaks away from the usual crime literature by delving deeply into the character of these infamous lovers. In his unique and uncompromising style, Gilmore places the reader behind the windshields of hundreds of stolen cars, running with the young outlaws on a two-year spree of robberies and shoot-outs, to its dead-end in a torrent of bullets and blood. On the Run With Bonnie & Clyde offers a controversially critical view of the unlawful ambush murder of Bonnie Parker by a posse of six lawmen with heavy-duty rifles. 167 high-caliber rounds were fired into the unsuspecting bodies of Clyde and Bonnie (who was never officially accused of a violent crime). Heavily illustrated with rare photos from the author's collection.
