James Benn, author of the WWII Billy Boyle mystery series.

The Essex Library is honored to welcome back James Benn in celebration of the release of his 12th Billy Boyle mystery. The Devouring has earned a starred review from Publishers Weekly and Booklist wrote of the book: ​”Benn​ ​molds an entertaining story out of Billy and his cohorts’ encounters with odious Swiss bankers and a cadre​ of ​Gestapo agents stationed in Bern to protect the loot. Great history here.” Benn’s series is very popular with historical fiction fans, mystery readers, and military buffs.

A free, illustrated author talk by James Benn on his 12th Billy Boyle WWII mystery novel at 7 p.m. Oct. 3 at the Essex Library, 33 West Ave. Benn will focus on the U.S. government’s concerns in 1944 that looted Nazi gold might be successfully laundered through Swiss banks and used to begin a new German Reich.
