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

"A smart, fast-paced, action-packed historical mystery series replete with liberal dashes of humor and romance providing broad appeal to readers of military history, thrillers and mysteries. He deftly combines a mélange of edge-of-your seat suspenseful situations with historical accuracy and engaging literary references."

"The series as a whole is the best set of wartime novels since those of the legendary Nevil Shute."

"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
