Bonnie and Clyde: Resurrection Road
“We must beware of that small group of selfish men who would clip the wings on the American eagle in order to feather their own nests.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt
As the country limps out of the Great Depression, American needs new heroes.
Like Bonnie and Clyde.
Turns out they never died that fateful day in 1934. The photos of their bloodied bullet-riddled corpses and funerals were faked. Instead, the outlaw lovers were kidnapped by a secret organization defending American democracy and the working class from capitalist greed. Forced into a covert life, they are given a dangerous and desperate mission—stop a cabal of wealthy industrialists from assassinating President Roosevelt and sinking his progressive New Deal policies.
Rooted in historical fact, the novel builds on the real 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.
During the Great Depression, a moment in America's history dominated by bread lines, Hoovervilles and foreclosed farms, when the economy had spectacularly failed the working class, will Bonnie and Clyde overcome their pasts to protect the "forgotten man?"
Can true love, a fast car and a Browning Automatic Rive save America from itself?
