Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A] lively (and surprisingly thoughtful) adventure series.--The New York Times Book Review

Fans of historical mysteries and World War II buffs will savor Evil for Evil. . . . Rich in its exploration of Irish history and politics, this is also a character study of a brash young man trying to balance personal, family, and political loyalties while staying true to himself.--Boston Globe

In the course of the first four books, Benn has done a fine job of juggling the pleasures of a whodunit with the much deeper drama of what it was like for young American men to be exposed to the butchery of war. . . . The author shows us the existential hell of the average soldier's experience waiting to see if he will survive his next exposure to combat.--Connecticut Post

A twisting, turning plot drives Benn's gripping fourth WWII mystery to feature Lt. Billy Boyle. . . . Benn offers no easy answers in this rich mix of Irish history and wartime intrigue.--Publishers Weekly

Fifty rifles have been stolen from a US army base in Northern Ireland. Billy's uncle, Ike Eisenhower, sends him to recover the weapons, which he fears will be used in a German-sponsored IRA uprising. Bodies begin to accumulate as Billy finds unexpected challenges to his Boston-Irish upbringing and IRA sympathies.

James R. Benn is the author of three previous books in the Billy Boyle series: Billy Boyle, Blood Alone, and The First Wave. He was a librarian for many years and lives in Hadlyme, Connecticut.
