Full of charm and sly humor, SIDE BY SIDE tells the story of Bonnie and Clyde's slide from lovebirds to jailbirds - and what an action-packed story it is! Vivid storytelling and a few shots of humanity breathe new life into this notorious duo. This book should be on everyone's "most wanted" list this summer." - Elise Hooper, author of The Other Alcott

Texas: 1931. It's the height of the Great Depression, and Bonnie is miles from Clyde. He's locked up, and she's left waiting, their dreams of a life together dwindling every day.
When Clyde returns from prison damaged and distant, unable to keep a job, and dogged by the cops, Bonnie knows the law will soon come for him. But there's only one road forward for her.
If the world won't give them their American Dream, they'll just have to take it.
"Compulsively readable, Walsh's prose hooks you from the beginning as Bonnie and Clyde come alive for the reader, their exploits leaping off the page. Atmospheric, action-packed, and richly detailed, Side by Side will delight historical fiction fans." - Chanel Cleeton, author of Next Year in Havana
