If you’re a fan of the classic film Bonnie and Clyde – <spoiler alert> -- you know the outlaw couple didn’t make it out alive. At least in real life. But an Oregon writing couple have revived the infamous lovers in a trilogy of historical fiction, that asks the question: What if Bonnie and Clyde lived through that barrage of bullets, and were offered a chance at redemption? Working as spies for a secret organization, on a mission to save American democracy?
The first book in the Bonnie and Clyde trilogy, Resurrection Road, was published in May 2017; the second book, Dam Nation, in early 2018; and the most recent title, Radioactive, was released just a few weeks ago.
We welcome authors Clark Hays and Kathleen McFall, live in the KBOO studios, to talk about the new book and the Bonnie and Clyde series.
