Publisher's Summary

The 10th book in James R. Benn's Billy Boyle WWII mystery series, normally set against a backdrop of WWII Europe, moves us to a flashback in the Pacific.

It's 1943: Amid the bitter, violent Solomon Islands campaign, Billy is assigned the murder investigation of a native coastwatcher whom future president Jack Kennedy discovered on a nearby island with his head bashed in. As the body count climbs, Billy must figure out whether Jack is a cold-blooded killer, even as war rages around him.

A fan-favorite series with built-in readership of historical fiction fans and military history buffs, by one of Soho Crime's best-selling authors.

    "Another Great Billy Boyle Mystery"

    James R. Benn just seems to be getting better with this character. The change in setting to the Pacific theater of operations was a brilliant and well developed idea. The narration of Peter Berkrot was exceptional. Overall, the only disappointment is that I now must wait for the next installment of Billy Boyle.

    "Another Great Billy Boyle Mystery"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The White Ghost to be better than the print version?

    Always. Love hearing the accents. Definite keeper.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The White Ghost?

    The interaction with Lt Kennedy was a high point, though the cameo of Dick Nixon was great too. The battle of the Solomons gets little attention in war novels.


    What about Peter Berkrot’s performance did you like?

    He does wonderful accents. South boston vs Haaavad.

    "As always"

    Pretty much every book in the series is excellent, and this was actually a step up. Going to the South Pacific was a great choice. I can't wait for the next installment.
    Thank you, Mr. Benn.
