In a biography so intimate it feels like an act of ventriloquism, Paul Schneider uses a wealth of primary sources--oral and written testimony from relatives, lawmen, victims, and partners in crime--to go deep inot the hearts of two spectacular Texas criminals and the Depression-era America that engendered them. Bonnie and Clyde: The Lives Behind the Legend (Holt) ignites like a combustion engine, driving the narrative toward its gruesome climax. A cross between ballad and pulp fiction (plenty of BLAM! and POW!), this book is a close encounter with killers at play.
