When I read and am WOW’d by a first book in a series, I am always nervous about the second book. What if that first one was just a fluke and the next one is a fail? What if the author(s) take it in a different direction? What if I am disappointed? And for a series that’s all about WHAT IF, waiting for the publication of Bonnie and Clyde: Dam Nation, the anxiety level was even higher. I guess I have book series trust issues. In my gut, I knew that in Dam Nation, good ol’ Bonnie and Clyde would ki ...more

Bonnie and Clyde: Dam Nation is book two in a series from Kathleen McFall and Clark Hays that explores a what-if scenario where Bonnie and Clyde didn't die in 1934. Instead, the famous duo's death was staged, and they were forced into helping a secret part of the government with stopping an assassination attempt on the President Roosevelt's life. Book two picks up after the events of the first book. Sal, their boss, appears again in their lives to send them on another dangerous mission. This tim ...more

Y'all, I have been waiting for this book since I turned the last page in Resurrection Road, which was the first book in their Bonnie and Clyde series. The story was just that good.

Thankfully, Dam Nation does NOT disappoint. Authors Hays and McFall have brought even more twists and turns than an old mountain road, and it contains the same quick and clever dialogue, brilliant imagery, interesting characters and good laughs as the first.

Dam Nation picks up right where Resurrection Road left off in

Imagine that Bonnie and Clyde didn’t die in 1934. Imagine that another couple had been ambushed in Sailes and that the real Bonnie and Clyde were recruited – well, maybe blackmailed is a better word – to do bad things in order to protect the good things in America. Book 1 of the Bonnie and Clyde series, Resurrection Road, kicked off that very premise and posed the questions: (1) who are Bonnie and Clyde working for and (2) who is the couple that got killed?

Dam Nation, the sequel, continues the p

Like other Hays and McFall books I've enjoyed, the second book of this creative trilogy left me intellectually stimulated, emotionally excited and wanting more at the end! The authors' writing sucked me immediately into the story--effortlessly. Let the "Resurrection" journey resume... fast moving action and colorful characters integrate humor with Depression Era culture while juxtaposing our American past with our present. Hays and McFall deftly inform and educate (subtly) via rich storytelling. ...more

This is book 2 in a “what if” series about Bonnie and Clyde and is even better than the first, which I thought was excellent.
What if Bonnie and Clyde didn’t die in the shoot out and instead went on to work for a secret organization to solve crimes.
In this book, they are sent to find out who is trying to slow down or stop construction of Hoover Dam - is it the mob, the union, the anarchists or someone else? In the current day story that is woven throughout, Bonnie and the reporter are trying to
