The mystery here revolves around the murder of a White House staffer just outside the President's personal rooms. It's wartime, and the list of suspects is long from potential Nazi spies to homegrown assassins who see FDR as no better than Hitler. The mystery is tightly written, and getting to follow First Lady Eleanor as she works with the police and the Secret Service is lots of fun. She's insightful and witty. If you like Christie's Miss Marple or Jessica Fletcher, you'd probably like Eleanor ...more
This from the Eleanor Roosevelt Murder series authored by her son Elliot Roosevelt. If you like mysteries, politics and history you might really enjoy these books. The basic plot line is that a murder is committed, often in the White House and the First Lady uses her logical prowess to solve the mystery. It is a traditional mystery format where there is a limited list of suspects and you are invited to think along with the detective.
What makes this series particularly interesting is the integr
Interesting White House and historical information.
Easy read and fun to see how Elliott weaves facts from that era with interesting mystery fiction. I have enjoyed the series thus far.
Great, as always. I have read most of the titles in this series. The descriptions of Washington and the weaving of history into the mystery is great fun. Another feather in the amazing Eleanor Roosevelt's cap. The fact that they were written by her son is even more delicious. Since he has been dead for about ten years, the stories are getting a little thin and short. I'm not sure how many more there are to release, but I will keep on enjoying them.
This was great! having just finished the 2 volumes of Eleanor's biography, everything made even greater sense to me and I had a much greater grasp on the times.
Her novels all include lots of history of the White House and it's occupants of the time. Fun to read and learn something at the same time
This is my 3rd or 4th Elliott Rooselvelt book. He writes a good story as will as a little insight into history at that time in history.
The Elliott Roosevelt mysteries are wonderful for letting you see into the life of Eleanor Roosevelt and the political times.
A fun read. I gather this is from a series.. and I'll be looking for the others.
