"While the title Bonnie & Clyde: Resurrection Road would seem to indicate some kind of supernatural forces at work, in reality it's a reinvention of a classic perception that slowly and successfully turns the reader's mind about who are friends, who are enemies, and how loyalties can switch sides under social and political pressure." Donovan Literary Reviews
"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 Roadis 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 Roadposits 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

The story begins with a fantastic twist: what if Bonnie and Clyde never died in the notorious, bullet-riddled car? Fast-forwarding into Bonnie’s AARP years, Mrs. Parker retells her story of romance and havoc with none other than Clyde Barrow to a reporter, Royce, in the hopes of discovering who they were really working for over the last few decades—a secret organization in need of talent and skills to save President Roosevelt from an imminent assassination. Boss lady, Sal, sees the right mix of potential in Bonnie and Clyde, steals them away from the ambush in Louisiana, and the adventure burns rubber from there.
Forced to do the job Sal demands, or be killed, Bonnie and Clyde go undercover and take on the assassination plot. But who are they really working for? And are the assassinators, a group of Wall Street thugs referred to as the ‘barons’ really the bad guys? Teams get crossed, jobs get jumbled, and Bonnie and Clyde no longer know if they themselves are good or bad.
Throw into the mix a political movement that parallels today’s issues, and Resurrection Road becomes one fantastical and entertaining read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The writing is exceptional, witty, steamy at times, comical, and a fast-paced blend of great fiction. Join in the smack-talking, gun slinging, bank-robbing journey and pick up Resurrection Road today! It’s truly another gem in the McFalls – Hays dyad.
After reading the Cowboy and Vampire series I thought there is no way on this green earth would Clark and Kathleen be able to write another book that would make me laugh and shed a few tears in the process. The only bad thing I have to say about the whole story is that I have to wait to read book 2.
I won't spoil the whole plot but I will say that if you loved their other series, you will not be sorry to add this to your reading list. The way the story is told draws you in from several viewpoints. It starts off with a reporter being called to a graveyard to meet an old lady about a potential story. No way the reporter sees what is coming and he quickly goes from being a skeptic to someone wanting to believe the story he is hearing and following up on verifying facts. What he learns is that Bonnie and Clyde lived and were forced to seek redemption by force, initially, but then understood the gravity of what their past misdeeds caused.
It's a true masterpiece in that it non-stop action, quirkiness that I love about the writers, dry humor, but most of all, shows the commitment that two people in love can have for one another. I am not sappy so saying that made me choke. LOL
If I were you, I'd order and count on missing a few hours of sleep because you won't want to put it down.
As the novel begins, Royce Jenkins - a newspaper reporter- meets an old lady at a graveside. She has called and told him that she has a real story for him but he must not publish anything at all until she has told him the entire story. She begins by telling him that she is really Bonnie Parker and the person that was being buried was Clyde Barrow. He is skeptical and finds lots of holes in her story when he tries to research it. According to Bonnie - now known to the world as Brenda Prentiss - she and Clyde woke up in a room being told that Bonnie and Clyde had been killed the day before in a gunfight with government agents. The story of their demise and pictures of their bullet riddled bodies were all over the newspapers so it wasn't difficult for them to believe that someone had been killed. They were offered a chance to make up for all the harm they had caused if they would help rid the country of several very bad bankers who were trying to keep the New Deal from becoming a reality which would help America thrive. Their exploits in trying the make this happen make this an entertaining read. If you are a reader who can suspend reality to get into a good story, this book is for you.
Thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book to read and review. All opinions are my own.
