Reading Recommendations: The Lives and Times of Bonnie and Clyde, E.R. Milner
In his prologue, Milner introduces Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, showing them as they drive along a rural Louisiana lane toward the ambush that would put an end to their turbulent lives of crime. Milner then traces their backgrounds, noting the events that bring the two outlaws together. The ensuing adventures of Bonnie and Clyde featured gun battles, narrow escapes and captures, frequent moves, and out of necessity several shifts in personnel over a short period of time. It was a life of wild action, and betrayal, and sometimes even gallantry. In the abstract, an aura of romance surrounded this violent pair.
Although the mythology surrrounding Bonnie and Clyde is charged with drama and fascination, Milner reveals the truth behind the bloody legend, carefully gleaned material from obscure locally published accounts, previously untapped court records, and archived but unpublished oral history accounts from some sixty victims, neighbors, relatives,and police who were involved in the exploits of the infamous duo. Romance aside, the Barrow Gang carved a grisly swath through Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri.
The string of death was long, and real: Akota, Oklahoma, Sheriff severly wounded, deputy killed: Sherman, Texas, grocery clerk killed; Temple, Texas, man killed as gang attempts to steal his car; Jop-lin, Missouri, two officers killed; Alma, Arkansas, police officer killed; Crockette, Texas, prison guard killed; Miami, Oklahoma, police officer killed.
Milner traces this violent path until May 23, 1934, when Bonnie and Clyde die in an ambush. Even dead, they draw crouds and are buried in a circus like atmosphere. In death they continue to intrigue us in ways few crimals had before or have since.
From Texas Bookshelves And, The Jefferson Key, a novel, Steve Berry
Four presidents of the United Stated have been assassinated, in 1865, 1881, 1901, and 1936, each murder seemingly unrelated.
But what if those presidents were all killed for the same reason; a clause in the United States Constitution, contained within Article I, Section 8, that would shock most Americans?
This question is what faces former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone in his latest adventure. When a bold assassination attempt is made against President Danny Daniels in the heart of Manhattan, Malone risks his life to foil the killing only to find himself at dangerous odds with the Common wealth, a secret organization of pirates, first assembled during the American Revolution. In their most perilous exploit yet, Malone and Cassiopeia Vitt race across the nation and take to the high seas. Along the way they break a secret ciphor originally possessed by Thomas Jefferson unravel a mystery concocted by Andrew Jackson, and unearth a centuries old document forged by the Founding Fathers themselves, one powerful enough, thanks to that clause in the Constitution, to make the Commonwealth unstoppable.
