Praise for Evil for Evil

“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 brash young man trying to balance personal, family, and political loyalties while staying true to himself.”
The Boston Globe

“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.” Connecticut Post

“This outstanding series effectively blends historical fact—in this case, the Nazi effort to use the Anglo-Irish conflict to their own advantage—with a richly detailed fictional storyline, creating here a riveting mystery that will captivate readers.”
Mysterious Reviews

Praise for the Billy Boyle series

“Benn continues to create fascinating behind-the-scenes mysteries from little-known facets of World War II history . . . A fast-paced mix of action, adventure, and crime solving . . . A solid series that keeps getting better.”

“A triple dose of excitement with a murder mystery within a spy thriller within a World War Two adventure story. . . . A ‘rattling good read.’”
—Rhys Bowen

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

“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
