Poppy Denby, Arts and Entertainment Editor at The Daily Globe, covers an exhibition of Russian art, hosted by White Russian refugees, including members of the surviving exiled Romanov royal family.
There is an armed robbery, a guard is shot, and the largest Faberge egg in the collection is stolen. The egg itself is valuable, but more so are the secrets it contains within - secrets that could threaten major political powers.
Suspects are aplenty, including the former keeper of the Faberge egg, a Russian Princess called Selena Romanova Yusopova. The interim Bolshevik Russian ambassador, Vasili Safin, inserts himself into the investigation, as he believes the egg - and the other treasures - should all be restored to the Russian people.
Poppy, her editor Rollo, press photographer Daniel and the other staff of the Globe are delighted to be once again in the middle of a sensational story. But soon the investigation takes a dark turn when another body is found and an employee of the newspaper becomes a suspect. The race is on to find both the key and the egg - can they be found before the killer strikes again?

I loved the first book, but this one is even better, if that is possible! I loved the Russian story line, couldn't wait to find out what had happened to Anya...
Poppy is brilliant as ever, and I was so glad to have all the old characters back, as well as a whole new set. Some of the characters were intriguing, and finding out the truth about them was such a surprise!
I had just started using virtualtrips, and their amazing guide at St Petersburg gave me extra information. How incredible to see the winter palace at the same time as this story, it gave it a wonderful extra dimension.
I loved the ending, so unexpected. I never thought it was going to end in that way, and it kept me gripped till the end.
Now, I wonder where Poppy will go next.
