"We're tougher than a lot of things,
but we might not be tougher than atomic energy."

Five stars! Wait, make that a double. Yes, Bonnie and Clyde: Radioactive deserves ten stars. Actually, the trilogy (Resurrection Road, Dam Nation, and Radioactive) deserves an entire constellation. You definitely do not want to miss a single word from start to finish.

What if Bonnie and Clyde slipped through the law's fingers and were not the ones getting shot up in that car on that fateful day in 1934? This basic

After the exhilarating ride in the last book, Dam Nation, I was anxious to get my hands on this third and final book of the Bonnie & Clyde saga. Fifteen years have lapsed since the original ride or die couple was working the Hoover Dam assignment, but we pick up where we left off with Bonnie and Royce the journalist, sometime in the ‘80s.

Time hasn’t taken anything away from Bonnie and Clyde. Their smarts and toughness haven’t dulled after over a decade of living covertly, and their passion for e

FYI: This review contains some spoilers of previous books in the series.

We all have those authors we follow and anxiously await the next release of a new book and can’t wait to devour it. The team of Kathleen McFall and Clark Hays are in that category for me. I fell in love with their Cowboy and Vampire book series, and I have managed to read every single one of their books in the Bonnie and Clyde series. Radioactive, is the newest and third book in this series featuring Bonnie and Clyde, and I

I borrowed a friend's copy and loved it so much I downloaded a copy to read again.
Radioactive doesn't disappoint. The rich and raucous adventures of Bonnie and Clyde continue and I was glued to the pages nightly, until I finished the book. One of the things I love about this whole series is that the importance of the working class, the people on the front lines of each of Bonnie and Clyde's challenging assignments, are pivotal in completing the assignments. Big business, politics, and large ins

4.5 STARS. From the beginning of the Bonnie and Clyde series, the hook for me has been “what if”? What if the notorious outlaws hadn’t died in a rain of bullets? What if they were whisked away and forced to use their unique skills to work for the US government, fighting for the good of the working class? And of course, the question persists about whether people who do so much bad can be redeemed.

Through the first two books in the series, RESURRECTION ROAD and DAM NATION, readers are taken into

Bonnie and Clyde Radioactive is the third installment in Clark Hays’ and Kathleen McFall’s unique and wildly imaginative alternate history of Bonnie and Clyde. This book will be best enjoyed if you have read the first two books in the series (and you should, because they will both take you on a wild ride.)

As with the previous books, the story is told in a dual-timeline format. Chapters switch between Bonnie and Clyde’s next assignment and that of Royce and Bonnie as they race to answer more ques

“They’ll stop at nothing to keep this story from coming out.”

Since I read the opening words of the first book in this series, I was immediately hooked on this phenomenal, alternative history fiction story. What if history was changed by someone not dying? What if you could be given a second chance to make up for all the wrong you’ve done in your life? Powerful questions. Authors Clark Hays and Kathleen McFall took a story surrounding those two basic questions and made it a commanding, unforgetta

This was one amazing “what if” scenario. Could you imagine Bonnie & Clyde not dying in a hail of bullets in 1934? What if they were working for the government of all organizations? I believe we all know their story so I won’t mention it here. However, what I will do is focus on this reimagining of their lives together created by authors Hayes & McFall.

The authors seamlessly moved between the duo’s past and Bonnie’s present. A present that included a reporter who was tasked with telling the widow
Jul 21, 2020 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
In scale, this trilogy easily lives up to the notoriety of the Bonnie and Clyde legend. Critics argue that the ruthless, murdering duo should not be favorably characterized. However, it doesn't appear to be the authors' intent to trivialize or romanticize the truth about Bonnie and Clyde. The numerous missions created throughout the trilogy demand the mercenary traits exhibited by the heinous couple as they were known in their day. Layers of story within story are intriguing; cultural, political ...more
