Decades in the making, On the Run With Bonnie & Clyde is a fast moving and gut-wrenching, highly original exploration into the personalities of the star-crossed lovers and “public enemies” Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. A thoroughly researched, in-depth study of the true natures of these notorious outlaws, by an acclaimed author well versed in the dark fields of violence, On the Run With Bonnie & Clyde breaks away from the usual police-blotter procedurals on these outlaw lovers. Delving deep into their character in his unique and uncompromising style, Gilmore places the reader squarely inside a stolen 1932 V-8 with the desperadoes on a dusty, two-year, devil-take-the-high-road spree of robberies, shoot-outs and murder. Through the dark windshield of legend, the short lives of these outlaw desperadoes on a relentless ride to an infamous end—in a torrent of blood and bullets—emerges as an essential and compelling narrative of these undying icons of American crime lore. On the Run With Bonnie & Clyde includes a controversial critical perspective of the unlawful ambush murder of Bonnie Parker, who was never officially accused of a violent crime. Heavily illustrated with rare photos from the author’s collection.

If you're going to read one book on Bonnie & Clyde, this is it—the most definitive work that brings the reader to the gritty reality of the era."
— Marshall Terrill
John Gilmore is one of America's natural-born gifts to literature. His books aren't just wicked and inspiring by-products of genius: they're miracles. I don't know how he keeps telling the truth of things when so much of our mental landscape is shrouded in darkness and stupidity. I adore him. He's the best ever.
