The Kill Fee

Issue 18

by Fiona Veitch Smith

Local novelist, Fiona Veitch Smith returns with her second work of detective fiction after the runaway success of her delightful debut, The Jazz Files. Following on from the events of the first novel, Poppy Denby’s star is on the rise. Now the arts & entertainment editor at The Daily Globe, Poppy covers an exhibition of Russian art at the Crystal Palace. A shot rings out, leaving a guard injured and an empty pedestal in place of the largest faberg√© egg in the collection. Once more, Poppy is plunged into the murky waters of political intrigue. Steeped in flapper girls, scandal and jazz age glitterati, The Kill Fee is a potent mix of history, mystery and sharp observation. A great thriller for the festive period and every bit as good as her initial offering.
