|Summary, etc.:||"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. . . "--Provided by publisher.|

This follows Poppy Redfern and the Midnight Murders (2019), moving us forward to late autumn, 1942. The ever forthright and clever Poppy has diverted some of her creative skills into a job as a scriptwriter at the London Crown Film Unit, which issues shorts portraying heroic wartime civilians. Her first solo script project is to feature the "Attagirls," women who pilot planes to military airfields, and she is delighted at the prospect of picking up enough detail to put Ilona, her fictional character, into the cockpit of a Spitfire in a new mystery, as part of this band of sisters. When one of the best pilots, and then another, dies in what is deemed an accident, Poppy and her American fighter-pilot boyfriend, Griff, suspect something worse. Arlen conveys so strong a sense of time and place that the reader will feel as though they have stepped into an episode of Foyle's War. A must-read for fans of an era that still holds us in its thrall, a desperate time met head-on with dignity and courage. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
