Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: When the slain body of a White House police officer is discovered outside the President's bedroom door, our favorite First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, must comb Washington D.C.'s underworld to expose the President's would-be assassin before he strikes again. . . It is 1933 and the President and the First Lady have just settled into the White House to face a nation in the depths of the Depression and world on the brink of war. But chaos erupts right in their own home when the body of a White House police officer is discovered at the foot of the President's bedroom door. Eleanor Roosevelt smells a rat and knows that the crime must be solved internally without attracting the attention of the press or the FBI's J. Edgar Hoover. Firmly committed to her husband's safety, Eleanor enlists the confidential assistance of D.C. Lieutenant Edward Kennelly and faithful Secret Service agent Stanislaw Sxcygiel to help her investigate. With their aid, Eleanor is able to keep up appearances at her many social engagements while managing the secret investigation and examining clues. Faced with a trail of evidence leading to stolen nights of passion in the White House, underground tunnels, insider trading, mob connections, and speakeasies, Eleanor uncovers suspicious characters and motives galore. It takes discreet ingenuity and social propriety to continue rubbing elbows with famous contemporaries and fulfilling her duties as First Lady while a top secret assassination investigation is in full swing-but can Eleanor stop the killer before he makes another attempt on FDR's life?
