Early reviews are in for BLOOD ALONE, the third in the Billy Boyle mystery series. See what Kirkus and PW have had to say, along with a great blurb from Joe Finder:
Another bracing cocktail of period action with a whodunit chaser from the increasingly authoritative Benn.
Characterization and atmosphere carry Benn's third WWII mystery, a convincing blend of fact and fiction...a fine job of depicting a dusty, poverty-stricken Sicily, where warm loyalty is the reverse side of pitiless vendetta.
James Benn is a wonderful writer, and Blood Alone is terrific. The premise is irresistible, the pacing nonstop, the prose razor-sharp. Any fan of Ken Follett or Alan Furst, or anyone who enjoys reading about World War II — or just a great story — will love this book.
—Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Power Play and Paranoia
