5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mysteries with an innovative background
By Suzanne L. Barnum on May 26, 2021
"Only the Good Die Young" is a mystery anthology based on the songs of Billy Joel. I had the pleasure of watching an interview with most of the authors, explaining their reason for picking the song they chose as well as a synopsis of each chapter. Fascinating to have seen the book in the eyes of the authors. One chapter per album - what a great plan by the editor, Josh Pachter, to include almost 20 years of incredible music. I recommend this book to fans of Billy Joel and fans of crime mysteries!
