Tuesday, October 17th at 11:00 am. James Benn, author and creator of SOHO Crime’s Billy Boyle. Bookstore1Sarasota, 12 South Palm Avenue.

James Benn is launching his newest Billy Boyle mystery right here at Bookstore1.

The Devouring is the 12th book in James R. Benn’s Billy Boyle WWII mystery series. A murder in wartime Switzerland reveals the complicity of Swiss bankers and officials with the Nazis.

Billy and Kaz are sent to neutral Switzerland to investigate the murder of a Swiss banking official with ties to the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). The US and Swiss governments are about to embark on diplomatic discussions, and the OSS wants the murder cleared up. The plans go wrong from the beginning when Billy and Kaz crash-land in France. Once they make it across the border, they find that Swiss banks are openly laundering gold harvested from concentration camps, and those who are profiting will do everything they can to protect their wealth and hide their dark secrets.

A Blind Goddess was long-listed for the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, and The Rest Is Silence was a Barry Award nominee. Benn, a former librarian, splits his time between the Gulf Coast of Florida and Connecticut with his wife Deborah Mandel.
