An explosive alt-history book reimagines the life of Bonnie and Clyde
In Resurrection Road, Bonnie and Clyde are given a chance at redemption, living out a different timeline as working class heroes, fighting to protect the forgotten man from capitalist greed.
Can true love, a fast car and a Browning Automatic Rifle save America from itself?
The story begins in 1984 when a reporter gets a tip to meet an old woman at a Texas cemetery. Cradling an antique rifle and standing over a freshly dug grave, the woman claims to be Bonnie Parker, there to bury the love of her life, Clyde Barrow. She insists that back in 1934, the photos of their bloodied, bullet-riddled corpses and the funerals were faked.
Instead, just before the ambush, the outlaw lovers were kidnapped by a secret organization dedicated to defending American democracy and the working class from capitalist greed. They are given a dangerous and desperate assignment—save President Roosevelt from an assassination plot.
Who wants to kill the president?
Rooted in historical fact, the novel builds on the real-life assassination attempt on president-elect Roosevelt by Giuseppe Zangara in 1933. Zangara claimed to be motivated by anti-capitalist sentiments but a hasty conviction and subsequent death-by-electrocution left unanswered questions about who may have actually been behind the deadly plot.
Bonnie and Clyde. Saving democracy, one bank robbery at a time.
