Peace, Love, and Crime: Crime Fiction Inspired by the Songs of the '60s 

by Sandra J Murphy, C A Fehmel, Catina Williams, Claire A Murray, Dawn Dixon, Earl Staggs, Heidi Hunter, Jack Bates, James A Hearn, Jeanne DuBois, John M Floyd, Joseph S Walker, Josh Pachter, Karen Keely, Linda Kay Hardie, Maddi Davidson, Mary Keliikoa, Maxim Jakubowski, Merrilee Robson, Michael Bracken, Paul D Marks, Terrie Farley Moran and Wendy Harrison

Rebellion, revolution, and rock and roll defined the ‘60s. As music moved from country to folk protest songs, rock became the voice of the “turn on, tune in, drop out,” generation. Peace, love, and harmony were the goals. Meditation, mysticism, and psychedelic drugs were the way to enlightenment. Peace, love, and crime were often the result, sometimes humorous, sometimes deadly.

And the music played on. As Harold says in The Big Chill, “There is no other music, not in my house.”

Each story is based on a popular song from the 60’s. Every one is a little gem of a mystery. Eapecially loved Breaking Up is Hard to Do by Mary Keliikoa!
