Y'all, I have been waiting for this book since I turned the last page in Resurrection Road, which was the first book in their Bonnie and Clyde series. The story was just that good.

Thankfully, Dam Nation does NOT disappoint. Authors Hays and McFall have brought even more twists and turns than an old mountain road, and it contains the same quick and clever dialogue, brilliant imagery, interesting characters and good laughs as the first.

Dam Nation picks up right where Resurrection Road left off in a dual timeline format. The book opens in 1984 where reporter Royce is investigating the elderly (but still feisty Bonnie's) story, which in the last book she contacted him about writing. As Royce gets closer to the truth, pressure is placed on him to back off. Part of his research involves helping Bonnie uncover the mystery of who was shot and killed, and buried in their place back in 1934 in rural Louisiana.

Alternating with Bonnie's present day situation is the story of how Bonnie and Clyde are called to Nevada to investigate who is trying to destroy Hoover Dam. The possible suspects range from the mob, the anarchists, the union organizers - or could it even be big business itself? The authors successfully mix danger and treachery with humor. Neither Bonnie nor Clyde are used to regular work (let alone housework, or even grocery shopping) so their undercover work is both tense and highly entertaining.
I'll never look at the old wind-up alarm clock in my guest room again without laughing, either.

This series continues to delight, and as the situation in the present day grows more dangerous as mysterious men in cowboy hats appear to be after Royce, we're left wanting more. McFall and Hays do an amazing job of weaving the two timelines, and it wasn't until I turned the last page that it hit me - they didn't disclose how Clyde ended up in a wheelchair, or how he died. I think their reimagined history is possibly even more outrageous and wild than stories of their life before their death.

I guess I will need to bide my time until the next book comes out. Authors, please don't keep me waiting long.

I was provided with a copy of the book for review purposes.
