The Poison Factory: Operation Kamera is the debut novel form foemer CIA operations officer Lucy Kirk. She takes her expertise and personal knowledge to craft a thriller that will feel very real for her readers. This fiction work will immerse you immediately in the story of Decktora Raines and the international espionage she finds herself involved in.

Decktora is on leave from the CIA and trying to cope with the memories of the agent she lost and her disappeared life partner, Alex. Though she is not actively working as an agent, she is contacted, by a Russian defector she had previously worked with and she finds herself heading to London. Once she arrives she learns another defector has been murdered and that there are just two odd clues, claw marks and a strange white powder. With bodies continuing to appear the London police think that they might be dealing with a serial killer. Decky, the fun nickname for our main character, will have to push aside the memories plaguing her and try to stop whoever is killing her London contacts and just why they are committing these crimes.

Kirk takes her knowledge and crafts a story that is so captivating and creative. With her own knowledge of the CIA and the USSR, now Russia, she is able to create a thriller that feels so true. You will think this is something that actually happened and you will find yourself digging into the mystery with her main character. I was pulled in right away and completely engaged until the very end. If you are looking for a great read that will keep your brain buzzing this is the perfect read for you.

The story focuses on Pepito, a young boy who lives with his grandmother. For a long time he has only had one friend, a doll named Lola. When he meets a young boy named Miguel he now has a new friend to have adventures with. When the story starts we see that Pepito is afraid the children he goes to school with will make fun of him, but at home he is free to play freely with Lola. When he meets Miguel the two have a completely trusting friendship and he introduces him to Lola. We see the two grow closer and eventually have to confront bullies when Lola falls out of Pepito’s bag.

This story is so cute and the art truly highlights the story. We see vibrant images of Pepito and Miguel playing with Pepito’s abuela. The friendship that we see grow in the story is just so well written and shows that you should not feel ashamed to like toys that you want to like. It also shows the evolution of a friendship between Miguel and Pepito, who are wonderful together. If you are interested in Pepito Has a Doll you can find out more on the official website for the book.
