As is the case with the 16 previous books in the Billy Boyle series, the action takes place against a backdrop of real-life operations and personnel. You'll travel to North Africa and Europe, while trying to weed out enemies from allies. There are vignettes of humanity and brutality, along with superb suspense plotting. Combat scenes feel real, even if you have never experienced them. You can learn more about WWII history from Benn's novels than with most textbooks, and it is much more enjoyable reading.

The continent of Africa is home to 1.4 billion people in 54 countries, and more than 2,000 languages are spoken there. It is a diverse, creative, and complicated place. Often presented as one big safari park, or treated as a buzzword for poverty, strife, corruption, and civil wars, the reality of Africa is far from these stereotypes. This books speaks of hope, change, and points out a younger generation of Africans who are educated and business savvy. It is a good read, and you might learn something while you're at it.
