The fifth Billy Boyle investigation American Lieutenant Billy Boyle is assigned to London by his uncle, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, to investigate the murder of a Russian security officer in the buildup to D-Day. Billy recognizes that this is a politically charged case, pitting Allies against one another, and that he must proceed with caution. The Polish contingent is incensed over evidence that implicates the Russians in the murder of hundreds of Polish prisoners in the so-called Katyn Forest Massacre, and Scotland Yard thinks this murder of a Soviet officer may be a revenge killing—perhaps perpetrated by Billy’s friend Kaz, a Polish baron in exile. But Billy doesn’t buy it. Can he find the real murderer, exonerate his friend, and prevent Allied relations from falling to pieces at this critical moment of the war? From the Trade Paperback edition.

What’s a twenty-two-year-old Irish American cop who’s never been out of Massachusetts before doing at Beardsley Hall, an English country house, having lunch with King Haakon of Norway? Billy Boyle himself wonders. Back home in Southie, he’d barely made detective when war was declared. Unwilling to fight—and perhaps die—for England, he was relieved when his mother wangled a job for him on the staff of a general married to her distant cousin. But the general turns out to be Dwight D. Eisenhower, whose headquarters are in London, which is undergoing the Blitz. And Uncle Ike wants Billy to be his personal investigator. Billy is dispatched to the seat of the Norwegian government in exile. Operation Jupiter, the impending invasion of Norway, is being planned, but it is feared that there is a German spy amongst the Norwegians. Billy doubts his own abilities, with good reason. A theft and two murders test his investigative powers, but Billy proves to be a better detective than he or anyone else expected. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Praise for the Billy Boyle series: “The brash kid from Southie is still open, direct and fearless in his manner (and in his wonderfully loose-jointed use of the English language) and in no danger of losing his cover as a ‘happy-go-lucky Yank.’ But even amid the excitement of the spirited wartime storytelling, Benn allows Boyle’s experiences to change him in ways both subtle and dramatic.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review “Thoroughly enjoyable.”—The Seattle Times “This series brings WWII alive.”—Deadly Pleasures “Great fun. Benn knows his war history.”—The Globe and Mail “Kudos to author Benn . . . and here’s hoping that Billy will continue to make his way through his Uncle Ike’s world for many titles to come.”—Bookslut.com Billy Boyle awakens in a field hospital in Sicily with amnesia. In his pocket is a yellow silk handkerchief embroidered with the initial L. Gradually he remembers: he has been sent ashore in advance of the troops with this token from Lucky Luciano to contact the head of the Sicilian Mafia. But he must also thwart a murderous band of counterfeiters of Army scrip led by Vito Genovese. James R. Benn is the author of Billy Boyle: A World War II Mystery, selected by Book Sense as one of the top five mysteries of 2006 and nominated for a Dilys Award. The First Wave was a Book Sense Notable title. Benn is a librarian and lives in Hadlyme, Connecticut. From the Hardcover edition.

Gerry Fegan galt als der harte Mann der IRA. Wegen zahlreicher Morde hat er zwölf Jahre im Gefängnis gesessen. Als er wieder herauskommt, hat die Welt sich verändert. In Nordirland ist der Frieden verkündet worden. Seine einstigen Weggefährten haben sich mit der neuen Zeit arrangiert. Nur Gerry Fegan gelingt das nicht – er wird verfolgt, Tag und Nacht. Die Geister seiner zwölf Opfer scheinen ihm nachzustellen – unschuldige Männer, Frauen und Kinder. Und sie erteilen ihm Befehle. „Wenn du willst, dass ich verschwinde, musst du die töten, die dir die Befehle zum Töten gegeben haben.“ Sein erstes Opfer ist Michael McKenna, ein alter Freund, der nun Politiker geworden ist und die Strippen zieht. In Belfast bricht Unruhe aus. Wer könnte einen alten verdienten IRA-Mann getötet haben? Sind gewisse Kräfte dabei, die alten Konflikte wieder aufleben zu lassen? Fegan macht weiter – noch elf Geister verfolgen ihn. Atmosphärisch dicht erzählt Stuart Neville von einem zerrissenen Land. Ausgezeichnet als bester Thriller des Jahres. »Ein Buch, das mehr ist als ein Krimi und doch so spannend wie die besten Beispiele für dieses Genre.« NDR

In this seventh installment of James R. Benn’s hit WWII-era mystery series, Lieutenant Billy Boyle goes undercover in the Vatican. Lieutenant Billy Boyle could have used a rest after his last case, but when his girlfriend, Diana Seaton, a British spy, goes missing in the Vatican, where she was working undercover, he insists on being assigned to a murder investigation there so he can try to help her. An American monsignor is found murdered at the foot of Death's Door, one of the five entrances to Saint Peter's Basilica. Wild Bill Donovan, head of the OSS, wants the killing investigated. The fact that the Vatican is neutral territory in German-occupied Rome is only one of the obstacles Billy must overcome. First is a harrowing journey, smuggled into Rome while avoiding the Gestapo and Allied bombs. Then he must navigate Vatican politics and personalities—some are pro-Allied, others pro-Nazi, and the rest steadfastly neutral—to learn the truth about the murdered monsignor. But that's not his only concern; just a short walk from the Vatican border is the infamous Regina Coeli prison, where Diana is being held. Can he dare a rescue, or will a failed attempt alert the Germans to his mission and risk an open violation of Vatican neutrality?

In his time investigating crimes for both the Boston cops and General Ike's European forces, Lieutenant Billy Boyle hasn't encountered a serial killer. But now it looks like he may--a serial killer with a particularly frightening agenda. Two officers from the American troops stationed in Caserta, Italy, not far from Naples, have been found murdered. Lieutenant Norman Landry was found behind a supply tent with his neck snapped. Captain Max Galante, MD, was strangled on the same night, and his body left in a garden outside HQ. The MOs are completely different, and it seems like the officers had no connection to each other, but one frightening fact links the murders: each body was discovered with a single playing card: the Lieutenant, the ten of hearts; the Captain, the jack of hearts. The message seems to be clear--if the murderer isn't apprehended, the higher ranks will be next. Billy is sent to Italy for the investigation, which grows increasingly sinister. But he has other things on his mind, too. His girlfriend, Diana, is on a very dangerous spy mission, and Billy doesn't know when--or if--he'll see her again. To make matters worse, Billy's just learned that his baby brother, Danny, is being sent over to Europe as an infantry replacement, an incredibly dangerous assignment. And all around him, he sees GIs suffering from combat fatigue preparing for another battle. As the invasion at Anzio begins, Billy needs to keep a cool head amidst fear and terror as the killer calculates his next moves.

Als Boyles "Wassermusik" 1981 erschien und noch niemand den merkwürdigen Namen Coraghessan aussprechen konnte, war trotzdem sofort klar, dass dieser Roman das Zeug zum Kultbuch hatte. Boyle erzählt darin die weitgehend wahre Geschichte des schottischen Forschers Mungo Park, der im 18. Jahrhundert als erster Weißer den Verlauf des Niger erkundete. Zur Seite stellt er ihm die frei erfundene Figur des Ned Rise, einen englischen Grabräuber und Galgenstrick, der mit dem Entdecker im tiefsten Afrika die wildesten Abenteuer besteht. Außerdem dabei: ein phantastisches Panoptikum von Hexen und Schlägern, Kannibalen, Huren, Glücksrittern. Sein legendärer Erstlingsroman nun in einer fulminanten Neuübersetzung.
