The Go-Go’s made music on their own terms and, in the process, gave voice to a generation. Their songs are an indelible part of our collective soundtrack, speaking to the power and possibility of youth.

With a foreword by Jane Wiedlin and stories by twenty-five kick-ass authors, MURDER-A-GO-GO’S is an all-star crime fiction anthology inspired by one of the most iconic bands of the eighties.

Praise for MURDER-A-GO-GO’S:

“I always suspected that twinkle in the Go-Gos’ eyes was a coded invitation to a darker world. In the hands of these 25 stellar crime fiction writers, ‘We Got the Beat’ and ‘Our Lips Are Sealed’ become evil little gems. A totally rad read.” —ALAN HUNTER, Original MTV VJ, SiriusXM Host

“Shock and awe, that sums up my reaction to Murder-A-Go-Go’s. Shock to live in times when ‘The Whole World Lost Its Head’ and awe at the response of these gifted writers. Buckle up for a ride that will leave ‘Skidmarks on Your Heart.’” —SARA PARETSKY, best selling author of the V.I. Warshawski crime series

“Who knew those happy songs by one of all-time favorite bands, the Go-Go’s could inspire such dark, noir, spine tingling stories?!! It’s a collection of tales of distinctly female rage—the murderous kind and other wise—to keep you up at night!” —ALISON ARNGRIM, TV’s Nellie Oleson and New York Times best selling author of Confessions of a Prairie Bitch
