Praise

Praise for The First Wave

“Another rousing adventure . . . Once again the period details are spot-on and Billy, who doesn’t pretend to be anything but what he is, continues to make a thoroughly engaging detective.”
—The Denver Post

“What a great read, full of action, humor and heart . . . Equal parts spy thriller, war story and murder mystery, with a dollop of romance that’s never sweet, this is just a terrific book. More please!”
—Louise Penny

“A rattling good read.”
—Rhys Bowen


“A solid follow up to Benn’s first novel . . . [I] look forward to his next.”
—Robert B. Parker

“Benn follows up his first World War II mystery (Billy Boyle) with another danger-filled episode and delivers a cross-genre tale that is at once spy story, soldier story, and hard-Boyled detective.”
Library Journal, Starred Review

“Certain to appeal to WWII fiction fans.”
Booklist

“Part Indiana Jones derring-do and part grown-up adventure novel with spies, black marketers, loyal and dastardly French, and the reliably evil Nazis. If you like World War II historical crime novels, you’ll love this one.”
