About the Author

Liz Milliron is the author of The Laurel Highlands Mysteries series, set in the scenic Laurel Highlands of Southwestern Pennsylvania, and The Homefront Mysteries, set in Buffalo, NY during the early years of World War II. She is a member of Sisters in Crime, Pennwriters, and International Thriller Writers. A recent empty-nester, Liz lives outside Pittsburgh with her husband and a retired-racer greyhound.


"World War II on the home front comes alive in Milliron's new-series debut as Betty Ahern solves more than one mystery even while toiling in a Buffalo airplane factory with other young women. The story is riveting, Betty's courage and persistence are a delight, and her sidekicks provide perfect support and caution. The Homefront Mysteries promise to keep you on the edge of your seat...and smiling as you read."

-Edith Maxwell, author of the Agatha-nominated historical Quaker Midwife Mysteries

"Liz Milliron gives us a charming new series that I absolutely love and think you will too. Betty Ahern is feisty, loyal, and determined. Finding her way in a traditionally men's world, she not only helps the war effort by working at Bell Airplane, she's following her dream to become a private eye with a little help from her friends. If Sam Spade and Rosie the Riveter had a love child, she'd be Betty Ahern."

-Annette Dashofy, USA Today-bestselling author of the Zoe Chambers Mysteries

"A lively, richly atmospheric novel, set in the defense plants and ethnic neighborhoods of World War II Buffalo, NY, The Enemy You Don't Know is "Rosie the Riveter Meets Sam Spade." With fresh, idiosyncratic dialogue from a charismatic narrator, Liz Milliron delivers a compelling, crackerjack of a novel. Betty Ahern is the irrepressible heroine. Smart, stubborn, and--yes--reckless, she works in a defense factory building airplanes for the war effort. At least when she's not investigating disturbing acts of sabotage at the plant, snooping into the murder of a co-worker's brother, or keeping her eye on some suspicious Nazi sympathizers. And all this while doing her best to circumvent her parents' strict Irish-Catholic house rules. Readers will love this tale of derring-do on the home front."

--James W. Ziskin, author of the Anthony and Macavity award-winning Ellie Stone mysteries
