Annotation:
Billy Boyle is a long way from home. The Irish-American Boston cop is serving time with the army in James R. Benn's World War II mystery series. As he is wont to do, in RAG AND BONE, Benn effortlessly integrates nuanced descriptions of historical events and evocative settings with an intriguing plotline. Here Billy's assignment sends him to London to investigate the death of a Soviet officer who is suspected of spying. In the wake of the Luftwaffe bombing, this officer's murder could be connected to another of the war's great tragedies: the mass murder of Polish soldiers in the Katyn Forest.

Praise

"Benn excels at depicting the impact of war on London--the bricks from bombed buildings piled neatly on the streets, families living in Tube stations, 'the odor of the Blitz.' Destruction aside, Billy never forgets that 'Even in the midst of war, murder is unacceptable.'" 07/19/2010

"[T]he novel's scenes of London under siege are stark and poignant." - Marilyn Stasio 09/19/2010
