World at War: Rag and Bone

Rag and Bone (Billy Boyle World War II #5) James R. Benn. 2010. 320 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: Everyone was happy.

Premise/plot: Billy Boyle returns to England in the fifth historical mystery series set during the Second World War. In this one he is investigating several Russian murders. Because of the political tensions between Poland and Russia, Kaz, one of the series regulars, becomes a prime suspect. In some instances, just a matter of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Plus it looks like he is being set up—framed. Can Billy prove his friend’s innocence and find the actual murderer?!

My thoughts: I really love this series. I do. This is a strong title in the series though probably not my absolute favorite.

Never underestimate the power of peaches in syrup when an island has been at war for four years. (120)

Every actor has his choice. To speak the lines or have no lines to speak. (248)
