This second book in Maureen Jennings' terrific new mystery series brings England during World War II vividly alive: a must for fans of the author's own beloved Murdoch Mysteries and of Foyle's War.
     The summer of 1940 had been a dark one for England, and even darker for DI Tom Tyler's personal life. When several young women doing dangerous war work are killed in an explosion in a Birmingham munitions factory, Tyler is quick to help out. But as he talks to the remaining employees, the owner, and others connected with the factory, divisions begin to appear, and Tyler fears that what first seemed a tragic accident may be the result of something much more sinister, organized, and far-reaching.
     The rich sense of England during the era of the Blitz, pitch-perfect dialogue, and vivid characters -- not least the rough-around-the-edges charmer Tom Tyler -- make Beware This Boy another classic page-turner from master storyteller Maureen Jennings.

About the Author:

Born in England, MAUREEN JENNINGS emigrated to Canada as a teenager. The first Detective Murdoch mystery was published in 1997. Six more followed, all to enthusiastic reviews. In 2003, Shaftesbury Films adapted three of the novels into movies of the week, and four years later the Murdoch Mysteries TV series was created; it is now shown around the world, including in the UK, the United States (as The Artful Detective), and much of Europe, as well as on Canada's national broadcast network, CBC TV. The Detective Inspector Tom Tyler series, set in World War II-era England, got off to a spectacular start with 2011's Season of Darkness, followed by Beware This Boy in 2012. Maureen lives in Toronto with her husband, their two dogs, Varley and Murdoch, and their cat, Willie. Visit www.maureenjennings.com.

Review:

 · "Amazingly vivid and terribly real. . . . When [Jennings] takes the story underground during an air raid . . . readers might want to duck their heads and take cover." -- New York Times Book Review
 · "Great historical detail, solid characters and a really good plot . . . another winner for Jennings. Fans of the Foyle's War TV series should rejoice." -- Globe and Mail
 · "As fine a piece of historical mystery writing as [you are] likely to come across. An extraordinary piece of storytelling." -- Hamilton Spectator
 · "It's among Jennings' gifts that all her people are painted in full colours, each comprehensibly human, [and] Tom Tyler is the most complete and human of them all -- smart, empathetic, yearning, mournful and fair. . . . Verges on classic war-fiction status." -- London Free Press
