Drum rolls and trumpet toots … ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the new Poppy Denby! The Cairo Brief, fourth in the series, will be published 21 September. If you haven’t read the first three books yet, I suggest you get started! They are great holiday reads (if I may say so myself).
Poppy Denby is on top form solving the mystery surrounding the ancient Egyptian mask of Queen Nefertiti. Highly recommended!
Dolores Gordon-Smith, author of the Jack Haldean murder mysteries
Intrepid Poppy Denby visits a country estate not unlike Downton Abbey in this caper. It’s great fun following Fiona’s crew of early 20th-century reporters as they seek scoops and solve murders on the side
Deb Richardson-Moore, author of The Cantaloupe Thief, The Cover Story and Death of a Jester
Thoroughly enjoyable mystery. Murders, sinister figures, a cursed Egyptian mask…and a seance! All the ingredients for another superlative Poppy Denby investigation.
A. J. Wright, award-winning author of the Lancashire Detective Series.
Fiona Veitch Smith, where have you been all my life? Poppy Denby is delightful, the plot rocks, and the 1920s era is perfectly evoked. British mystery fans, you want to read this. You really, really do.
Cassandra Chan, Author of the Bethancourt & Gibbons mysteries
Reading The Jazz Files after seeing it at the Lit and Phil here in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Just the tonic I need at the moment and can’t put the book down! Looking forward to reading the rest in the Poppy Denby series. Thank you Fiona.
