Product description

Review

Praise for the Billy Boyle series

"This book has got it all--an instant classic."
--Lee Child

"Spirited wartime storytelling."
--The New York Times Book Review

"A meaty, old-fashioned, and thoroughly enjoyable tale of WWII-era murder and espionage."
--The Seattle Times

"A fascinating mystery with the sensibility of a World War II movie."
--Sacramento News & Review

"It is a pleasure marching off to war with the spirited Billy Boyle. He is a charmer, richly imagined and vividly rendered, and he tells a finely suspenseful yarn."
--Dan Fesperman

"One of the best books I've read this year."
--Mystery Scene

"The sense of place is sensational, a wonderful backdrop to this complex and intriguing story."
--Mystery News
