From author Mark Bowers comes a story following a couple of bank robbers as they tear a path of mayhem and passion across America, shades of Bonnie and Clyde. "Until Death Do Us" promises to treat romance aficionados and fans of crime fiction alike with its hardboiled narrative and unpredictable twists and turns, where protagonists are just as likely to die from heartbreak as they are from a bullet to the head.

Lisa is the female lead, a woman who has been in and out of trouble ever since her teens. After twelve years in prison, her life in the outside world would never be the same. She falls in with Trigger, whose bad boy image and lifestyle attracted her immediately. Together, they aspired to live the American dream, loving it with a vengeance. From Jersey City to Miami, they left a trail of blood, engaging in everything from contract killings to bank robberies. They were untouchable, and Lisa had everything a material girl could want.

She only dreamed of two more things in life: to feel true love and to marry the man of her dreams. Instead, she got arrested by the FBI and issued an ultimatum, which gave her two other things: a wire and a setup.

As Trigger made plans for their last bank heist, readers will see if Lisa will find the true love she longs for and go out guns blazing with her lover, or send him to death row in order to avoid her own jail sentence. Whatever she chooses, the outcome will be the same as always, culminating in gunfire, sirens and screams.

A trail of broken hearts and spent shell casings awaits readers in the pages of "Until Death Do Us."
