CRIME + MUSIC: The Sounds of Noir, collects twenty darkly intense, music-related noir stories by world-renowned mystery authors including David Corbett, Tyler Dilts, Brendan DuBois, Bill Fitzhugh, Alison Gaylin, A.J. Hartley, Craig Johnson, David Liss, Val McDermid, Gary Phillips, Peter Robinson, and Zo#65533; Sharp, and, from the music world, Galadrielle Allman, author of Please Be With Me: A Song for My Father, Duane Allman and award-winning songwriter-novelist Willy Vlautin. Edited by novelist and Wall Street Journal rock and pop music critic Jim Fusilli.

The lively anthology's chilling, sinister tales tap into the span of rock and pop history, ranging from Peter Blauner's heart-wrenching "The Last Temptation of Frankie Lymon" to Fusilli's "Boy Wonder," set in the world of contemporary electronic dance music; from Naomi Rand's "The Misfits," a punk-rock revenge saga to Mark Haskell Smith's menacingly comedic "1968 Pelham Blue SG Jr."; from Reed Farrel Coleman's study of a one-hit wonder, "Look at Me/Don't Look at Me" to Erica Wright's account of betrayal among minor talents in "A Place You're Likely to Find"--and many more.

CRIME + MUSIC exposes the nasty side of the world of popular music, revealing it to be the perfect setting for noir tales.
