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.
