A story of love, loss and murder - told in words and music.
“With her best years seemingly behind her, a former Las Vegas showgirl works double shifts in a rundown Memphis bar. Alone and estranged from her daughter, Marcia lives life vicariously through her customers and the everyday tragedies of people falling in and out of love. These are moving tales of grief and heartbreak, lust, murder and domestic horror. Serving beer and burgers as these very different stories unfold, Marcia reflects on her single doomed shot at happiness. Then one day she receives a phone call that changes everything…”
“A convincing world of barflies, peeling paint and characters on bar stools with very dark secrets.”
BBC Radio 4 Front Row
“Country romanticism and hard-boiled crime come together in a story that perfectly emphasizes the drama contained in the music.”
"Although the songs and the stories deal with marital discord and life’s little up and downs, the end result, like all good country music, raises the spirits and is, ultimately, life affirming."
“Where literature and music collide is a perfect wrap for this latest project by top selling crime fiction writer Mark Billingham and the UK’s premier act for keeping the flame of classic country alive My Darling Clementine”.
