    1. I would like to thank Netgalley and Lion Hudson IP Ltd for a review copy of The Death Beat, the third novel to feature journalist, Poppy Denby in 1920s London.Due to some ill advised actions The Daily Globe s owner and editor Rollo Rolandson is forced to work in New York for three months He decides to take Poppy with him and together with her friend, actress Delilah Marconi, they set sail for New York Trouble is never far from Poppy so it s not long before she and Rollo are investigating a coupl [...]

    2. 3.75 starsIntrepid reporter Poppy Denby is back, and this time she has exported her unique blend of sassy strength and persistence to America It s the 1920s and she is on a 3 month assignment to the New York Times There are a few historical characters who make an appearance, and snippets of actual events that add interest.It s not long before Poppy is caught up in a double mystery a sordid tale of the plights of immigrants, sweatshop labor, and forced prostitution as well as a tycoon s mysteriou [...]

    3. All good historical novels mix their storytelling with interesting insights into a past time and way of life The third in this series gives us a chance to see New York in the 1920 s and the view may be surprising We may be aware of the energy and innovation, we might have heard of prohibition and the Speakeasy s, and many people will know about Ellis Island and the flood of immigrants that entered the USA through it s gates But how many knew about the attitudes that many had towards immigration [...]

    4. This is the third book in the Poppy Denby investigative reporter series It s hard not to compare books in a series, especially when I liked the second book as much as I did This one just didn t have the same level of mystery and fun whodunnit feel from the second It wasn t until half way through the story the mystery even showed up The first half was spent describing the style, setting, and social life of the main characters It made it feel a little trivial I also felt Poppy s character was not [...]

    5. Just like the second part of the series, The Death Beat is an enjoyable read with a lot of fun characters and wonderful world building.Unfortunately, I just didn t think that the mystery this time was quite as well done as in the last installment of the series The plot is still interesting but just didn t seem as complex and involved as the last part.I still have to read the first part but I m definitely looking forward to it and forthcoming novels in the series.

    6. A strong 3rd book in the Poppy Denby series I had trouble with the tons of characters in book 2, but this roster was much manageable Book 3 is set in NYC, which is a nice change of scenery.
