BLURB

He’d been driving all night to get the heavy stuff over the Alps and across the border before the police could catch them. Just a couple of kids, Clyde and Bonnie had been fortuitously named twenty years before they first laid eyes on each other in that greasy dive in Bern. She was the brains of the operation, the one with all the grit. She cut the goods and worked the sales. He liked the way the gun felt in his hands and the way she looked at him when he ran his hands over the barrel. The perfect pair. When the blockade stopped their nimble blue baby for the last time, he knew he could count on her. Hell broke loose and he reveled in it, unloading bullets into every black vest that was determined to bring them down. He was cherishing those last moments with her, his girl, and his eyes rolled back in to his head with the ecstasy and the irony of it all. As bullets rained from his hand he looked over to share it with her. There she was, his feisty gun moll, slouched over on the slick grey leather of the backseat. The snow-white powder was sprinkled around her head like a halo. She never could stay out of the stash anyway, the greedy bitch. [Kathleen McCampbell]
