A song could unlock a secret.
A record could save the world.
The second half of the twentieth century gave us the Cold War, and it brought us to the brink of destruction.
It also gave us rock ‘n’ roll.
In this series of gripping adventures, young people caught in the crossfire of the Cold War discover the power of music to fight oppression and feed the human spirit. Tackling mysteries and unraveling conspiracies, they find the sources of our common humanity concealed in the most unexpected places.
Featuring unforgettable characters and a powerful sense of place, the Sing & Shout thrillers take you on a wild ride through a forgotten period of recent history.
