There's plenty here to chew on for fans of rock-and-roll and crime fiction.' -The Washington Post Anyone who likes to read short stories will enjoy reading how the music is blended into a mysterious plot." - Working Mother 'Crime and music seem so deeply intertwined in American culture, such natural thematic counterparts, that it is surprising that no one has had the idea of publishing an anthology like "Crime Plus Music" before. . . .
