Praise

Praise for A Mortal Terror

“A fast-paced saga set in a period when the fate of civilization still hangs in the balance.”
The Wall Street Journal

“Captivating . . . Benn does a superb job of simultaneously capturing the personal anguish of war and creating a splendid adventure novel.”
Library Journal, Starred Review

“Solid wartime adventure, well grounded in historical detail, and boasting a challenging mystery to boot.”
Booklist

“A thrilling, fast-paced book, a great yarn wonderfully told. The mystery ploy is top notch with the ‘who,’ ‘why,’ and ‘how’ aspects of the murders as puzzling and suspenseful as anyone could wish . . . Author Benn skillfully blends the mystery of the murders and the violence of the war into one fantastic, satisfying whole. If you haven’t already been hooked by this series, this book will do it and have you reaching back for the previous five.”
