In a rundown Memphis bar, Marcia – a washed-up Vegas showgirl – works double shifts and reflects on her single doomed shot at happiness, while her customers tell the stories of their own troubled lives. Tales of lust, loss…and murder.

A unique collaboration between the leading lights of crime fiction and country music, an original story by bestselling crime writer Mark Billingham is sound tracked by the powerful and poignant songs of internationally acclaimed Americana duo My Darling Clementine.

“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.”What’s On

“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.” Lonesome Highway

“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”. threechordsandthetruthuk
