Award-winning crime-writer Mark Billingham and leading country duo My Darling Clementine come together to present a dark and glorious mix of song and story.

A rundown Memphis bar. Lust, murder and domestic horror. That long and difficult search for…The Other Half.

Mark Billingham has come to the fore with his crime fiction and, particularly, a series of crime novels featuring London-based detective Tom Thorne. The latter led to an acclaimed television series based on the Thorne novels being screened on Sky One starring David Morrissey as Tom Thorne. As a big fan of music, Mark fell naturally into ‘The Other Half’ with My Darling Clementine whose Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish are a modern day classic duo in the mould of George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and Porter Waggoner, Johnny Cash and June Carter and many more.

A unique collaboration between leading lights of crime fiction and country music… a show to die for.
