The refusal camp : stories

Benn, James R. (author.).

Summary: "This dazzling collection of short stories by award-winning author James R. Benn shows a crime fiction legend at the height of his career. In his first ever published anthology, James R. Benn, author of the ever-so-popular Billy Boyle World War II Mysteries, presents an eclectic mix of new and previously published mystery stories. In this collection, betrayal, murder, revenge, greed, and the powers of and connection to spirituality are explored. In "The Horse Chestnut Tree," Benn tells a story of betrayal and murder during the American Revolutionary period. In the speculative work "Glass," an atomic supercollider and the breakdown of the time-space continuum that involves the works of one "Steven Koenig," a Stephen King-like author, change the lives of two cousins devoured by greed. How far someone will go to gain revenge is pondered in "Vengeance Weapon," a historical thriller about a Jewish slave laborer working at the Dora concentration camp. And for all the Billy Boyle aficionados, Benn delivers "Irish Tommy," a police procedural set in 1944 Boston and featuring Billy Boyle's father and uncle. Full of terror, action, amusement, and bliss, The Refusal Camp is a delightful collection from one of historical crime fiction's most prolific authors"--
