This book, set in World War II Switzerland is an amazing continuation of the Billy Boyle series. Fast paced and full of intrigue and action, there is no down time. The story is in retrospect, a very accurate portrayal of the "neutral Swiss government" during the war. Few at the time knew or at least acknowledged that Switzerland was very involved, from a banking and manufacturing stance, in supporting the Nazi regime and victimizing Jews. It is true Switzerland was neutral, but it was just more neutral to some than others. This is that story of active and passive assistance some Swiss provided to Nazi Germany. This is a fast and easy, fully engaging, World War II story.
The Devouring explores and exposes the complicity of the Swiss government in aiding and abetting the Nazi's during WW2. It is generally an unknown aspect of the conflict and one that has not been talked about enough. Benn does a great job of weaving in the complex government relationships in dealing with corporate interests and the lack of morals that play into profiteering. Peter Berkrot does a great job as usual with narration and drives the pace of the book nicely.In all a highly recommended listen.
