Buster Midnight's Cafe

Sandra Dallas

St. Martin's Griffin



May Anna Kovacks was discovered on the dustry streets of Butte, Montana and went on to become a Hollywood star. War, fame, marriage, love, and heartbreak came and went. What never changed was the bond she shared with her two best friends, Effa Commander and Whippy Bird. When scandal, murder, and betrayal made a legend of May Anna, only Effa and Whippy Bird could set the record straight.


Praise for Buster Midnight's Cafe

“Country music between covers...Style, tone, and lesson in one succinct package.” —The Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Sometimes, sad, sometimes funny, but always right on the mark, this is a book about heritage, about friendships you will envy, about people doing their best, as well as their worst. Sandra Dallas has worked magic.” —Cathie Pelletier

“Entertaining...memorable characters bring Prohibition-era Montana to life...Ms. Dallas has a good feeling for story, character, and dialogue.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Undoubtedly one of the zippiest and most pleasant reads to come out this year... I read it the second time with equal pleasure just to make sure the magic was there. It is. It surely is.” —The Denver Post
