The egg itself is valuable, but more so are the secrets it contains within – secrets that could threaten major political powers. Suspects are aplenty and Poppy is delighted to be once again in the middle of a sensational story. But, soon the investigation takes a dark turn when someone connected with the exhibition is murdered and an employee of the newspaper becomes a suspect.

Fiona Vetch Smith has worked both as a journalist and university lecturer. Her debut novel in the Poppy Denby Investigates series, The Jazz Files, has been shortlisted for the Crime Writer’s Association’s Endeavor Historical Dagger Award.
My Thoughts: In the past I read another one of Fiona Vetch Smith’s books, The Jazz Files and was super interested in reading The Kill Fee. It’s just as great as the previous book. I love Poppy Denby, and the whole way I feel like I’m in the book with her. There’s so much going on and all of it is a ride, that Smith does a great job creating. I’d for sure recommend The Kill Fee either for yourself or as a gift for someone else.
