Books 6 and 7: Billy Boyle and Zombie Haiku

I finished Billy Boyle: A World War II Mystery by James Benn on Sunday. A nice, complicated plot with a couple unexpected twists. I already got the 2nd one in the series from OPL. Billy is a Irish Cop from Boston, when the draft hits right after Pearl Harbor, his family pulls strings to get him a non-combat post. Just as they pulled strings to get him through the detective's exam back in Boston. Billy is reporting to his shirt-tail relative-- Ike, and performing 'discrete investigations'. His story is one of coming of age later than he should have.

Last night I read Zombie Haiku. Twice as much book as humor. Meh.
