Abstract:

A pair of disaffected Midwestern youths meet, fall in love, and light out on a cross-country killing spree Jimmie John Hall wasn & rsquo;t anything until he was a killer, and Betty Dienhardt wasn & rsquo;t anything until she met Jimmie John Hall. When they get together, sparks fly and bullets follow. The first to go are Betty & rsquo;s parents, but Betty isn & rsquo;t bothered. She only wants to be with her man & mdash;the first person to ever make her feel special. They set off on a cross-country spree, killing for gas money and food, killing to swap their car for one the police aren & rsquo;t looking for. As the dragnet draws tighter they only grow closer, riding a road that leads to death because death has surrounded them all the time. Taking inspiration from the true story of Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate & mdash;the murderous teenage couple whose rampage inspired the film Badlands & mdash;Lawrence Block has crafted a pulsating narrative, as enthralling and terrifying as only young love can be. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lawrence Block, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from his personal collection, and a new afterword written by the author.
