Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde by Jeff Guinn
Go Down Together by Jeff Guinn is sold as the True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde. Unlike the glamorous take on their lives done by Hollywood, Go Down Together is an exhaustive analysis of their lives and the grim reality of their short time together. They weren't very talented robbers (the local police were even more incompetent), they were brutal murderers, they often slept in their cars or on the ground, and they expected to die one day in a hail of gunfire. A Texas Ranger decided they must be stopped and brought about their expected manner of death. Go Down Together has received mostly positive reviews with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel saying, "Seventy-five years after the outlaws' deaths, author Jeff Guinn delivers an intense but fascinating new look at Bonnie and Clyde that rubs the gloss from the mythos and replaces it with a patina of true grit."
