James Benn will be talking about his latest World War II mystery “Solemn Graves” at Mohegan Sun.
The longtime coastal Connecticut resident, who now lives in Florida, has built a large readership for his series of novels about Billy Boyle, a young Boston cop turned World War II military investigator, whose assignments have resulted in the character crossing paths with such real-life figures as John F. Kennedy.
Boyle’s family connection to Dwight D. Eisenhower — the general is Billy’s cousin’s husband — gives him more clout than the average military cop.
In the new book, Boyle is sent to Normandy in the time right after D-Day to solve the murder of an American officer in a heavily guarded military outpost near the front.
