The author said this was a hard book to write. I have to say it was hard to listen to. That being said it was necessary and while its fictional... its only fictional to a certain part because it hasn’t happened here in the USA yet.

I recommend this book.

Very interesting book about a legendary Texas lawman. But it’s a bit long winded. Still I enjoyed it and do recommend it.

This is an amazing story about one of the most infamous criminal bands in American history. So much fiction and romanticism has been written about Bonnie & Clyde that this is truly refreshing to listen to.

I read this book twice in the late 1980’s. Since then I received a degree in Russian & Soviet Studies and have been to Russia dozens of times. This book is just simply awesome. Mr Clancy left us before his time. The level of research that went into this book is amazing.
Truly an amazing book.

This is an excellent book. Clearly the author has experience Counceling people who were children of adult alcoholics and or abused. I really took to heart why I’ve been successful... no, I didn’t do it on my own... yes I’ve failed, and I’ve embraced failure and learned from it each and every time. I’m trying to be a supportive team member, spouse, and friend. Often I even fail at that, but I learn each and every time from that.
Thank you for writing this book.
