Ladies and Gentlemen, this is a Robbery!
The story of Bonnie & Clyde
The biography of the infamous outlaw couple.
The USA during the 1930s, the era of the Great Depression. In order to escape poverty and unemployment, Bonnie & Clyde come up with an unusual business plan: They begin robbing banks for a living. Admired by the losers of the American Dream, they keep a nation in suspense for two years. Then FBI-director Hoover declares war on the two outlaws…
How could a young couple from Texas responsible for the cold-blooded killing of innocent people become popular heroes?
Michaela Karl tells the fascinating story of Bonnie & Clyde in her newest book. It is the story of a relentless struggle against state and law – and the story of a great love.
