Product Details


Praise for Solemn Graves

“Enthralling . . . A complex and somber look at life in the midst of war where betrayals can come from your neighbor, who may be a Nazi spy, and gunfire is constantly in the background. Benn’s hallmark of meticulous research shines . . . In a series known for excellence, Solemn Graves stands out.”
—Oline Cogdill, South Florida Sun-Sentinel

“A highly entertaining murder mystery, as well as eloquently reflecting on the horrors of war.” 
—The Lancashire Post

“The ending was a jaw dropper.”
—Deadly Pleasures Magazine

“The stories are riveting, the cast of characters is incredible, and historical accuracy can be found on every page.”
—Suspense Magazine

“Exceptional . . . Benn has never been better at integrating a whodunit plot line with a realistic depiction of life on or near the battlefield.”
—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Once again, Benn has unearthed a fascinating piece of relatively unknown WWII history and built an engaging mystery around it, combining the Ghost Army with a chilling view of the ugly reparations exacted by Resistance fighters on assumed Nazi collaborators. Liberation, Billy is shocked to learn, has its own dark side.”​
—Booklist ​

“Benn’s plotting and his first-person narrative both acquire more gravitas as they continue to chart the course of World War II. His latest outing is a complex tale that hinges on a particular moment in world history he captures incisively.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“The front lines of Normandy in the weeks after the invasion are the setting for this thrilling battle of wits between a dogged US investigator and cunning killer. Deft, gritty, and real as a howitzer blast.”
—Andrew Gross, bestselling author of The One Man

Praise for the Billy Boyle WWII mysteries

“Spirited wartime storytelling.”
—The New York Times Book Review

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

“Cleverly told . . . the book weaves fascinating military facts with obscure historical details about the islands and native life.” 
The Arizona Republic

“One of Mr. Benn’s best books of the series . . . A pleasure to read.”
—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“Full of action, humor and heart.”
—Louise Penny
