Famous Texas bluesman Coyote Jack has agreed to join British band The Bluebirds for a one night gig at their home venue. Freshly dumped by his fiancee, singer Charlie French is hoping that this will be the start of something big for him and his friends. Alas, Charlie’s blues have only just begun. A series of misfortunes threatens to clip the Bluebirds’ wings, and as Coyote Jack staggers from one calamity to the next the bluesman’s credibility is swiftly called into question.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always been a massive blues fan, and have played in various bands since I was a teenager. I’ve also had the pleasure of supporting a variety of great visiting blues musicians…and some not so great ones. This novel takes one of those experiences as its nucleus. I’ve also used the novel to explore the various dynamics that go on underneath the surface of a group of people united by their love of music, if little else.
