Poppy Redfern is back on the case when two female fighter pilots take a fatal dive in an all-new Woman of World War II Mystery by Tessa Arlen.
It is the late autumn of 1942. Our indomitable heroine Poppy Redfern is thoroughly immersed in her new job as a scriptwriter at the London Crown Film Unit, which produces short films featuring British civilians who perform acts of valor and heroism in wartime. After weeks of typing copy and sharpening pencils, Poppy is thrilled to receive her first solo script project: a fifteen-minute film about the Air Transport Auxiliary, known as Attagirls, a group of female civilians who have been trained to pilot planes from factories to military airfields all over Britain.
Poppy could not be more excited to spend time with these amazing ladies, but she never expects to see one of the best pilots die in what is being labeled an accident. When another Attagirl meets a similar fate, Poppy and her American fighter-pilot boyfriend, Griff, believe foul play may be at work. They soon realize that a murderer with a desire for revenge is dead set on grounding the Attagirls for good. . . .

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The author does an excellent job of evoking a realistic atmosphere of England at war. The new roles for women, the love-hate relationship towards Americans, the ghastly food, the Corgi....all very well done.
Being from an aviation family, I loved everything about flying and planes, and WWII aviation. The attention to detail and the understanding of the aircraft is spot-on. I have to confess: it is one of my goals in life to fly in a Spitfire!
"Poppy Redfern And The Fatal Flyers" is definitely worth a read.
She is a careful compiler of clues and does tend to over think.
However, she has an intuitive ability to understand when her thoughts are inconclusive.
It is her sense of the British class system that keeps her grounded and aware when things are off.
Cannot wait for her next adventure chronicaling the Women of WWII roles in the war effort.
