Poppy’s job as the new Arts and Entertainment Editor at The Daily Globe is going well. There is an exhibition of Russian art at the Crystal Palace. While she is there a guard is injured and a Faberge Egg is missing. Soon after the exhibition several people are murdered. People Poppy knows are some of the suspects.
Will her job help her solve the murders, or will it put her in danger?
About the Author-
Fiona Veitch Smith currently teaches at Newcastle University. She was formerly a journalist in South Africa and the United Kingdom.
This book was filled with just as much excitement as the first one. Poppy, Daniel, and Rollo were busy trying to get the news stories and solve the murders. It certainly helped that they were in the newspaper business, so they knew how to ask the right questions and were inquisitive. Poppy really enjoys getting all the details and solving the mystery. I like the way she thinks.
There were extras that I appreciate. I like the 1920s map of London, the list of characters, a historical note, and the list of books and links to more information about this time period. I was glad that Smith told what she changed, so I wouldn’t assume what wasn’t true.
There was the continuing romance with Daniel, the photographer from The Daily Globe, so I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I want to know if their relationship will grow or not.
I recommend The Kill Fee to you. I hope you enjoy it. You don’t really need to read first book in the series first, but I do suggest you do read it at some point.
