Why Judy Why at SleuthSayers

 At SleuthSayers I explain how I became a fan of Billy Joel's obscure first album, which led to me writing "Why Judy Why" for Only the Good Die Young.

Why Judy Why

 I am delighted to have a story in Only the Good Die Young, Josh Pachter's new anthology of crime stories inspired by the songs of Billy Joel. "Why Judy Why" appeared on the obscure first album, Cold Spring Harbor.
