Críticas: Praise for "A Blind Goddess," the previous Billy Boyle WWII Mystery
"James Benn has written a gripping and entertaining mystery, but also . . . realistically and sensitively explores the rarely discussed race relations and power struggles in the U.S. Armed Forces in World War II Britain."
--Susan Elia MacNeal, author of the Maggie Hope mystery series
"A double-edged sword of a novel. A ripping murder mystery and a meditation on the terrible costs of war--hidden and otherwise."
--Reed Farrel Coleman
"One of Mr. Benn's best books of the series . . . A pleasure to read."
"--Seattle Post-Intelligencer"
"[Benn] achieves an impressive authenticity of time and place . . . without sacrificing a sense of underlying urgency, and it's his engaging characters, complex whodunit(s), and subtle humor that will sustain the more traditional mystery reader. Those who are first initiated to Billy Boyle with "A Blind Goddess" will find it hard to resist the desire to revisit the author's earlier offerings."
"--"Examiner.com
"[An] excellent eighth Billy Boyle whodunit . . . The superior plot and thoughtful presentation of institutional racism directed against American soldiers about to risk their lives for their country make this one of Benn's best."
--"Publishers Weekly," Starred Review
"Benn's thoroughly researched exploration of segregation in the wartime armed services is revealing and sensitively handled. Another nice mix of human drama and WWII history."
"--Booklist"
""A Blind Goddess" is a gripping, exciting entry in this outstanding series . . . The disparate storylines are clever and credible in their setup and execution, resulting in a superior mystery that fans of the series will thoroughly enjoy."
"--"Mysterious Reviews
"James R. Benn is getting even better . . . ["A Blind Goddess"] is all a big bag of delicious intrigue if you love World War II-era stories. Definitely a series you should look into

Praise for "The Rest Is Silence"

"[W]ill be savored by any fan of historical mysteries... don't miss "The Rest is Silence"! Highly recommended."
"--I Love a Mystery"
"Everything about this particular entry in the Billy Boyle series and the series in general makes for great reading. Benn does his research, and it shows in the quality of his writing. The scenes are intense, the dialogue powerful and genuine. Spend some time with Billy Boyle. You'll be glad you did."
"--The Weirs Times"
"With its very smooth mix of mystery and historical references (with a dash of" Downton Abbey"), just about everybody will find something of interest in this fizzy retro cocktail."
"--Library Journal "
"This series continues to grow, with the characters adding depth in each episode, and the ever-fascinating historical material dexterously tucked into the plot."
--Bill Ott, "Booklist"
"Benn offers a thrilling mix of fact and fiction in his ninth whodunit featuring Boston cop-turned-army investigator Billy Boyle. The affable and capable Boyle continues to grow as a character, and Benn effectively uses the impending Allied invasion of Europe as the background for the whodunit plot."
"--Publishers Weekly "
"[W]hiz-bang first-person narrative keeps the story afloat, and its Greatest Generation plot gives it an appealing sense of nostalgia."
"--Kirkus Reviews"
