Suspending disbelief is one thing. This book is another. Utterly preposterous. And pointless, since the whole plot ends up accomplishing nothing. And the murders mean nothing and are solved with no clues, evidence, etc. Cameos by Rommel, Josephine Baker, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. No, seriously, Gertrude and Alice. I've enjoyed some of the other Eleanor Roosevelt mysteries, but not this one.
This was probably the least favorite of this series I have read so far. I found the characters very hard to follow and I didn't like them. The information was very well researched and I felt like I was having a first had view of these sinister Nazi's.
