Product Description

The Kill Fee #2, in the Poppy Denby Investigations Series, by Fiona Veitch Smith

Poppy Denby’s star is on the rise. Now the Arts and Entertainment Editor at The Daily Globe, she covers a glamorous exhibition of Russian Art at the Crystal Palace. During the exhibition a shot rings out, leaving an injured guard and an empty pedestal in the place of the largest Fabergé Egg in the collection. The egg itself is valuable, but more so are the secrets contained within – secrets that could destroy the royal families of Europe. Suspects are aplenty and Poppy, her editor Rollo, and the other staff of the Globe are delighted to be once again in the middle of a sensational story. When they are offered a ‘kill fee’ to drop the story, they know they are onto something explosive. But soon the investigation takes a dark turn when someone connected to the exhibition is murdered and an employee of the newspaper becomes a suspect. The race is on to find the egg before the killer strikes again.

Publisher's Description

Poppy Denby, arts and entertainment editor at the Daily Globe, covers an exhibition of Russian art, hosted by White Russian refugees, including members of the surviving exiled Romanov royal family. There is an armed robbery, a guard is shot, and the largest Faberge egg in the collection is stolen. While the egg itself is valuable, the secrets it contains within are priceless--secrets that could threaten major political powers.

Suspects are aplenty, including the former keeper of the Faberge egg, a Russian princess named Selena Romanova Yusopova. The interim Bolshevik Russian ambassador, Vasili Safin, inserts himself into the investigation, as he believes the egg--and the other treasures--should all be restored to the Russian people.

Poppy, her editor, Rollo, press photographer Daniel, and the other staff of the Globe are delighted to be once again in the middle of a sensational story. But soon the investigation takes a dark turn when another body is found and an employee of the newspaper becomes a suspect. The race is on to find both the key and the egg--can they be found before the killer strikes again?

Fiona Veitch Smith offers up another rollicking mystery set in 1920s London, when women's emancipation, the jazz age, the consequences of the First World War, and the aftermath of the Bolshevik revolution were rearranging the cultural landscape.

    This review was written for The Kill Fee - eBook.
    What an intelligently put together story. It is seriously dramatic and yet it is practical in that the Poppy was systematic in finding out who stole the Faberge Egg. She ends up being disturbed by Corrupt factions of the White Russians and the Red Russians - who knew there were so many colored Russian mafias? The author goes into detail about them - which is good because you would have no idea - With all of this going on you have her being a feminist in a time when that did not happen - women were not allowed rights per se. It was the 1920 - women stayed home - clean it - cook for their husbands etc. not Poppy. So - did she figure it out before the police? Did she get into trouble - bad trouble with the mafia? was she taken by the mafia? what happens to Poppy? In the end what happens to give you the goosebumps? all this and more will be revealed when you open the book and read.....I received a copy of this book to give an honest review.
