Blood Country: A Nashville Sideman Mystery
by Dan Jewell
In Nashville, it’s conventional wisdom that if you’re looking for work in the music business, you’d better have a steady day job. Session guitarist and sideman Joe Rose has a day job. He’s a private detective. Rose is hired by strung out country superstar Vern Hamlin who is distraught because he recently received an anonymous letter indicating that the man accused of killing his father twenty years ago was innocent. The case was closed when that man lost his life in an escape attempt. Investigating the old murder, Rose interviews Hamlin’s sexy ex-wife whose publicist claims she’s country music’s answer to Lady Gaga. He also encounters a lovelorn professor who writes mystery novels, a crazed songwriter with a big gun, and Hamlin’s promiscuous stepmother who’s now married to the pastor of a Nashville megachurch. As he delves deeper into the case and the Hamlin family history, Rose soon realizes he’s in "Blood Country," a place not listed on the Nashville celebrity tour maps.
